WPCasa is a professional real estate WordPress theme framework that provides an easy way to build professional real estate websites with WordPress. The WPCasa real estate theme framework is from the creators of ThemeShift and is the result of all the lessons learned and user feedback they have received developing real estate WordPress themes over at ThemeShift.
The WPCasa Real Estate Theme Framework is designed for both for WordPress newbies and experienced developers. It has a lot of inbuilt flexibility with custom property edit screens, comprehensive theme options, layout settings and drag-and-drop widgets so beginners can easily create fully featured real estate websites without coding skills. The framework also caters for experienced coders with extensive yet thoughtful use of WordPress action and filter hooks for advanced customisation.
WPCasa includes a property editor to easily create and manage property listings. From a property edit screen you have fields and meta boxes to enter all the property features and details such as price, location, property type, property features, location map etc. The property management backend also includes filters to easily search and order your property listings.
The wpCasa framework comes with an advanced search function so users can easily search for properties. It scans your objects by keyword or property ID, custom taxonomies, custom fields such as price or property status. You can easily change the form fields to your needs on the theme settings page.
Custom Layouts and Custom Widgets
Comprehensive options let you individually set the layout of both single property, post and/or static pages as well as general property and post archives. wpCasa also has a set of extremely useful custom widgets. The entire front page and the single property page (as well as sidebar and the footer) are widget areas, so you can simply drag and drop your preferred widgets in the corresponding areas and your site is set with a few clicks.
Theme Options and Shortcodes
WPCasa has a backend options panel with a comprehensive range of theme settings and options to make it easy. You’ll find general options to upload your logo for example, property settings to set currency and features and search options to tailor the property search to your needs. wpCasa also comes with a list of handy shortcodes for buttons, alert boxes, sliders, galleries etc. It also natively supports WordPress standard features like custom menus, custom background image, custom headers, post formats and more.
Themes and Design
There are two options when it comes to the design and themes. The wpCasa theme framework itself has a basic, minimalist design with all the functionality, making it a perfect starting point for your custom real estate website. Alternatively there are child themes available that will give you a professional, customised layout ready to go. Currently there are two child themes available: Casanova and Penthouse shown below.

It’s important these days your real estate website is accessible to mobile visitors, so wpCasa has a responsive design. wpCasa and all the child themes are fully responsive so it will look great on all different devices from desktop computers to mobile phones.
