The second step to choose the best real estate WP theme is by reviewing it, and see whether it is responsive or not, and whether the responsiveness is good.

I can guarantee, since 2017, most themes available online are built with mobile responsiveness in mind. So, now the issue is no longer about compatibility but about how do they look on small screen. Messy or not.

In some cases the design of website looks great on the desktop but messed up in mobile devices, as well as its interface. Arranging the interface in small screen like mobile devices is just a different challenge for website designer.

They have to think about user experience when website is accessed with mobile devices. Kensington has great user experience both on desktop and mobile device.

Users can search in mobile device as smooth as in desktop. Booking property is easy both on desktop version and mobile versions.

3. Do Not Use Unused Features

The last step to choose the best real estate WP theme is looking its features. Many premium WordPress themes out there offer mega or even giga features. They use it for compelling user to buy their theme. After customers buy it, they don’t use it.

Many of theme features that they don’t use. Those features turn into junk. In addition, it is just make your theme overload your server. Kensington is different. Kensington features just straight forward for real estate website.

The most beloved one is dedicated page builder. Kensington has its own page builder that specifically build for real estate website purpose.

Meanwhile, other themes use common page builder (even premium) which many elements of theme you will never use it for building real estate theme.
