We’ll start with its visual presentation. Bellaina boasts a clean, minimalist style. The layout features plenty of whitespace, which brings the users’ focus of attention to the content provided. Intended for websites selling property, the theme is abundant in retina ready visuals, which are featured in its header, galleries, blog posts, etc. With the purpose of captivating the user’s eye with hot offers, the theme’s header is enhanced with a page-width carousel slider. A block with a brief property description on top of it introduces the users to a quick review of its highlighted features.
Right below the homepage slider, there is an integrated advanced search form with the Google maps widget. The latter features localization functionality. Thus, people can see exactly where the chosen property is located on the map. Moreover, they can discover additional property details by clicking a marker on the map.
The front page also includes a list of featured properties, agents, and user testimonials. In that way, people can take a quick look at the services you provide and read what fellow shoppers think about you and your agents. The latter is very useful in terms of building trust and long-lasting relationships with your clients.
Speaking about the features of the theme, it should be mentioned that Bellaina runs on a fully responsive Cherry Framework. It is also cross-browser compatible and SEO-friendly. Licensed under GPL v3.0, the theme can be installed on as many websites as you want, as well as modified in any way you wish.
The template comes with full iDX support. Although the plugin is not pre-loaded in the theme, you can download and install it on your own (assuming that you are an active member with MLS – the Real Estate multiple listing services -). DsIDXpress plugin allows you to embed live real estate listings into your website by means of a shortcode.
Bellaina is well-documented and includes free 24/7 support. A collection of Google web fonts is also added to let you add a personal touch to your site’s content.
Bellaina is a unique template built with TemplateMonster’s custom real estate plugin. Its primary goal is to help you create a fully featured real estate web resource that will be both functional and user-friendly. Due to the real estate plugin, the theme includes a localized Google map widget, which allows the users to read additional data about the chosen property by clicking on the marker.
Another custom plugin developed by TemplateMonster and added to the theme is Cherry Projects. This is a tool that allows you to create an impressive showcase of your property. The plugin is integrated with a set of pre-made templates, which allow you to get started with an impressive portfolio seamlessly. Moreover, the plugin includes a number of additional features like sorting/filtering options, the possibility to tweak posts/items/columns, as well as multiple display features.
Bellaina is made usable and intuitive for both webmasters and less experienced users. Thus, it is built with Power, i.e. TemplateMonster’s custom drag-and-drop page builder, letting you create unique layouts of various pages of your website by simply moving different elements of the design with a mouse. Power is pre-loaded with a library of presets and more than 25 modules, which you are free to use on your website.
Additionally, Bellaina incorporates WordPress Live Customizer, which is featured in the majority of the latest WordPress releases from TemplateMonster. The tool is intended to speed up the process of the theme’s customization while displaying the changes that you apply live.
To make the presentation of your website’s content more impressive and diverse, the theme also features a selection of content modules. Thus, you can choose from a number of CTAs, sliders, contact forms, counters, and other elements. All of them are fully editable and can be adjusted to match your brand identity at its best.
Custom widgets – this is another feature that makes Bellaina stand out. Simple Slider, post carousel, social media, and a number of other useful widgets are integrated to enhance your website’s usability. RE Search and Recently Added Property are included as well.
The Property Pages are designed with attention to detail. A carousel slider of property images welcomes the users at the top of the page. A brief property description comes next. A built-in map and contact info for the agent, whom the users can reach for details, are also included in the property page.
On the Agents Listing page, people can see the entire list of agents whom they can contact for selling or buying property. When reaching the page of an agent, one can see additional information with the agent’s bio, contact details, links to social media profiles, and an integrated Google maps widget with the localization feature. A list of properties that the agent sells is also included.
User registration form is simplified. It only requires one to enter an email address to get registered. Moreover, people can choose which particular agent they would like to reach by filling in a simple property request form.
So there we go. These are the highlighted features of this real estate theme. Additionally, it includes a selection of footer and header variations, a selection of blog layouts, and fully-featured blog support. A number of additional page templates are also available. So, you are provided with all the functionality needed to start an online business right way.
