Successfully Handling Hard to Let Properties With Cobalt Housing

Where did it all begin?

Cobalt Housing was formed in February, 2003 and is a registered housing association based in North Liverpool. They currently manage 6000 affordable homes across Croxteth, Norris Green, Fazakerley and Sparrow Hill. As the majority landlords in these areas, Cobalt Housing are actively engaged in a wide range of economic, neighborhood and community regeneration activities within the area.

They aim to provide quality places to live and try to play a part in developing communities where people are proud to live, which is similar to the mission that MovingSoon has. They identified an issue with finding tenants for some of their homes and approached MovingSoon on the recommendation of another housing association.

Cobalt Housing have been using MovingSoon since 2017 to find new tenants for their available homes.

How did MovingSoon help, and what were the results?

Cobalt Housing found that they had some hard to let properties that they were unable to find tenants for via the Choice Based Lettings (CBL) Scheme.

Since Cobalt began to advertise with MovingSoon, they’ve found new tenants for their homes. MovingSoon’s reach in finding new tenants who could rent their properties was a no brainer – so far this year the success rate is 100%.

MovingSoon currently works with over 40 housing associations across the UK. With their mission of making affordable housing more accessible, having such a wide variety of providers allows greater choice for customers.

What does the future hold?

Cobalt Housing discussed their 5 year relationship with MovingSoon:

“We have been using MovingSoon since 2017 and always get inundated with enquiries and let all our properties via their website. The website is extremely customer friendly. It’s also great to see the innovations that have taken place so far and about their plans to make it even easier for people to find affordable homes.”

MovingSoon founder, Paul Malone, is delighted to continue working with Cobalt Housing. He stated:

“They like the direction we’re moving in with interest in adding their new build homes to our pipeline search tool. More importantly they like the way they can feedback and have input into changes we’ve made to date are keen to provide feedback to ensure we are constantly evolving to continue. Our aim is to make the process as smooth as possible to find affordable homes.”

MovingSoon is looking to work with more affordable housing providers across the UK. If you’re interested in finding out more about how MovingSoon could help you advertise your affordable homes, book your free demo or get in touch.
