Responsive Real Estate Template

The Hot Homes is a responsive real estate template for Joomla! It extensively uses a relatively new Joomla! feature: Custom Fields. Thanks to this powerful core feature, our template has everything that's needed for development of a complex real estate agency website. Additional extensions are not necessary! Everything you need is Joomla! and this professional template.

It's easy to add new properties as well as edit them via backend or front-end of your site. All property listings are actually Joomla! articles and real estate agents (realtors and brokers) are Joomla! users. Additional data to the articles and users are added through the custom fields. An advanced search of real estate listings per various criteria is included as a house finder. The property search uses the core search component.

Detailed Information About Properties

Custom Fields are new and probably the most powerful feature of Joomla! It allows us to attach some additional pieces of information to the articles and users. There are various types of fields for real estate website. They can be simple, like description text, price, area. But, they can also be more complex.

There are different types of fields. They can be in the form of select box (sale or rent), checkbox (hot offer, available features, etc.) or media field (carousel images, floor plans and video). This feature is a part of Joomla! core, so you don't need any additional extensions. Therefore, compatibility with future Joomla! versions is guaranteed! Check the following infographic to learn how the custom fields are related to the property listing elements.

The address you enter into a property listing will automatically display an appropriate Google Maps location with ability for map search and street view. This is the best tool you can have for a house finder and it improves user experience.

Articles As Real Estate Property Listings

Real estate properties in the Hot Homes real estate website are actually regular Joomla! articles powered with Custom Fields. Each article acts as a single property. When you edit a single property listing (actually, an article), in example a house rent or a condo for sale, you can also edit the additional data on the same page. Such data are categorized in 5 tabs: Info, Location, Details, Features and Media and can be edited from both backend or front-end.

Only articles from the specified categories (i. e. 'Properties' category) have fields. Articles from other categories don't have them. Therefore, beside the property listings, you can use Joomla! articles for regular purposes, such as blog posts or informational pages about your company, etc.

Joomla Custom Fields

The Custom Fields can be customized easily through Joomla! backend. You can rename each of the fields. Also, you can re-group them, change group names or add new groups of custom fields. You can also change the field's default value and mark some of them as mandatory or not mandatory.

It's so customizable that you can even use the real estate template to develop a website for a completely different purpose!

Adding Media is Ridiculously Easy

Real estate property listings are worth nothing without appropriate media attached to each listing! That's where the Hot Homes template shines and improves user experience! All that listing authors (agents) should do is to upload and select media. Everything else is automated!

Joomla Users as Real Estate Agents

It's possible to assign multiple Joomla! users to act as authors. In the real estate website, these authors are actually real estate agents of a real estate company.

Real estate agents have privileges to add and edit properties through the front-end of the website. The real estate agent's data are displayed at the bottom of each property listing. Through the small contact form (secured with ReCaptcha), potential customers can contact the agent who published the listing.
