Estate agency software for WP. Market properties on your website, manage contacts and applicants, or expand the features through add ons

Property Hive is the first plugin that aims to bring all of the features you'd normally find in estate agency software into WordPress.

From managing residential and commercial properties, owners and landlords, to tracking applicants, matching and emailing them suitable properties, we want to do it all.

Why Property Hive?

There are many estate agency software options available on the market, but here's why we think you'll love Property Hive:

Only use the features your business needs

By default Property Hive is a property and contact management tool, allowing you to manage your property stock, list properties on your website, record owners details, store applicants requirements and email suitable properties to them.

Through use of premium add-ons however, you can choose which features you want to bolt on. The add ons fit seamlessly into the existing plugin, and with each other.

Want to send your properties to property portals? There's an add-on for that. Want to add Draw-A-Search functionality to your website? There's an add-on for that.

Our add-ons are priced individually from just £14.99 meaning you only pay for what you use.

You can view all of our add-ons on our website.

Works with any new or existing theme

Property Hive isn't a theme. It's a platform allowing you to integrate property search into any website, new or existing. For more details on supported themes click here or view our pre-built themes.

Millions of developers

Property Hive isn't developed by one person, or a small team. It's built by the world. Property Hive is open-source meaning anyone can contribute, regardless of which country they're in, or how much existing knowledge of the plugin they have already.

Want to build a new feature? Maybe fix a bug you've found? As long as you have an understanding of PHP and WordPress, or know someone that does, you can make the changes yourself. What's more, your hard work will be received gratefully by everyone else that uses the plugin.
