WP Estate has been originally designed for Real Estate independent agents and agencies, but following the several feature updates added since theme launch, you can also use it to build your own real estate portal and allow users to submit properties for free or for a fee (via Paid Submission or Paid Membership, via Stripe and/or PayPal).
Starting WP Estate 3.0, you can use the theme to list properties and rent or book accommodations, all these managed from front end. Check our demo for the details. Please consider that the booking version and non booking version cannot be used at the same time. When booking is enabled, all properties will have the booking form and the private message system available to registered users.
1. Enable front end submission and ask users who wish to list properties to purchase a paid Membership Package with recurring option. You can create unlimited packages, each with an expiration date in x days, weeks, months or years. You select the number of listings and featured listings in each package.
2. Alternatively, you can enable Paid Submission and charge for each submission. You can even ask an extra fee for the submitted listing to be transformed into FEATURED property (to always show on top in lists).
As administrator, in WP Estate you can add your own custom property fields, and you can setcustom Advanced Search spots with your own fields. Up to 8 spots are available, and you can use less if you wish. Plus, you have 5 Advanced Search design layouts to choose from.
WP Estate features 27+ shortcodes, 7 custom widgets, 4 different design layout for Advanced Search on Google Maps search, full and small width slider on properties, Agents and Properties custom templates, colors controls, and many other easy settings to help you design the theme as you desire.

- Deactivate and activate the theme again for listings to pick up the new FEATURED option and new Zoom Controls on taxonomy pages. If you upgrade from v1.93, Theme Options will be saved. If you upgrade from an older version, Theme Options will be overwritten (like landing address and custom colors).
- If you upgrade from an older version and you want to activate NEW Membership packages, package limits will not consider the listings already submitted (paid or free).
- The most recommended way is to start a new account for all users, to have an accurate package limit number.
- PayPal IPN account details must be updated for Membership to work (please see our manual above). Recurring is supported only by the OLD API, so you must add IPN – API info in Theme Options. If you want to test with Sandbox, you must add Sandbox API. If you want to test with LIVE API, you must add LIVE API info.
Important: If you are upgrading to V1.6 from v1.5, please notice that all custom Theme Options will be overwritten because we’re adding a complex change to theme functionality. After you upgrade, de-activate and activate the theme again from WP-Admin so that the new Page Property Options page populates with the default content. Thank you for your understanding.
