Since 2005 Sky Blue Homes has been providing a market-leading lettings and property management service in Leicester, supporting the landlord community an meeting the private rental demand for tenants across the city.
Now In our 16th year, we wanted to highlight the 5 top reasons why we’re the best local firm at what we do.
Not only has the company itself been in the market place since 2005, but Sky Blue Homes can also call upon the skills of a dedicated team with individuals based in Leicester, giving them a strong personal understanding of the nuances of the City’s rental market.
Our team also boasts market specialists in student housing, whether it's marketing the property or suggesting changes to a property that will appeal to students and give it an edge in a crowded section of the market.
Physical high street storefront
In this day and age there are a lot of flash-in-the-pan businesses that pop up, that are purely online, operating in a digital domain. They can be kind of impersonal and often, they don’t have the staying power.
The benefit of a company like Sky Blue Homes that’s been around for a long time, is that we also have a physical storefront in the City centre to back our 16 years' industry experience.
Located near Leicester train station on London Road, we’re a short walk from Leicester’s vibrant shopping district and easily accessible to all the major areas of the City.
Our modern office gives our landlords and tenants a place liaise and the opportunity to talk face-to-face with our team and generally take in the Sky Blue Homes ethos.
It’s reassuring to know we have history and we’re here to stay.
Legislation, property marketing and paperwork
We know that landlords who self-manage their properties themselves have an awful amount of work they have to do and things to remember, wherever it's legal matters or in terms of practical considerations for a property. Landlords can easily be snowed under by this, especially if they have multiple properties in their portfolio.
When Sky Blue Homes fully manage a property, we handle the marketing, credit and history check potential tenants, collect rent, look after the messy admin and inform landlords of all legislation.
Sky Blue Homes landlords have a better work-life balance to enjoy the finer things and actually enjoy their life, while we look after their investment and shepherd in a truly passive income for them.
Early adopters of technology and new trends
We’re always looking to evolve and embrace new ways of doing things at Sky Blue Homes. We keep our ear to the ground on developing trends and what out competitors are doing to ensure we’re at the forefront.
Indeed, we were one of the first to bring in the use of digital inventory platforms to speed up the check-in and check-out process and increase efficiency. We also invested in virtual tours software to take our property marketing to the next level.
Our support of the local community
At Sky Blue Homes we take our social responsibility seriously – putting back into the surrounding area as much as possible and looking to make a genuine difference. We’re very proud of the partners and charities we’re supporting to help those that need it the most, in particular the Greggs Foundation and its Breakfast Club.
Through our 2-year support of the Breakfast Club we’ve donating locally to the Sacred Heart Academy in Leicester, ensuring around 60 Leicester children start the day with a healthy breakfast at school.
