WordPress for Custom Home Builder

Building a WordPress Website in version 4.1.1

Just launched a new WordPress website for a custom home builder.  We took the html website originally designed years ago and migrated the content into a clean WP installation.

WordPress design features:
  • Mobile friendly theme (Real Property)
  • Image slider (Revolution)
  • Real estate property search widget
  • Integrated Google Map
  • Links to social media
  • Responsive navigation
  • Responsive form (Jotform)
  • On-page SEO (Yoast)
Most modern WP themes now have the ability to inject custom CSS (goodbye PHP code hacks). I like to use Chrome's built-in "inspect element" to reverse engineer the styles.  This allows me to preview CSS overrides in real-time.  Then it's a simple copy/paste/save to apply the site-wide theme changes.
