Every expat has different accommodation needs, and finding the right place to live is a big decision, whether you’re a newcomer seeking a short-term soft landing or an established family looking to move within Hong Kong. If you’re currently in the midst of making this very important decision, you can alleviate some of the stress by turning to Signature Homes. This is the luxury leasing brand of Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP), one of Hong Kong’s largest property developers. It has been servicing the expat housing market for more than a decade, and currently offers one of the city’s best and broadest residential property portfolios – everything from apartments and houses, to penthouses and serviced suites.
All Signature Homes residences are managed by SHKP to provide tenants with a more personalised tenancy experience – it’s one way the company differentiates itself from private landlords. Here are some of the other things you can expect from this one-stop leasing solution.
The huge Signature Homes residential property portfolio features houses, apartments, penthouses and serviced suites that are all available under the personalised leasing service. These properties are strategically situated in prime areas of Hong Kong – including prestigious areas such as Mid-Levels, Island South, the Peak, the CBD and other urban spots that are convenient and well connected. Many are within highly sought-after catchment areas for international schools and boast features such as harbour and sea views, excellent amenities and green surroundings. Pacific View, Dynasty Court, The Royal Tower and 51 & 55 Deep Water Bay Road are just a few of the impressive properties on hand.
One key feature of the Signature Homes approach is its personalised leasing service that goes beyond what’s offered by a regular landlord. So, a dedicated Tenant Relations Team is available to attend to every need or concern you might have during the tenancy period.
In addition, concierge services are available at selected properties. These can include premium grocery express delivery, restaurant bookings, parcel storage, laundry arrangements, letter mailing and printing, and more. Home maintenance services such as general home repair can also be arranged for your property, and appointments for household cleaning, window cleaning and pest control services can be booked through Signature Homes.
There are some great value-added services available, too; for example, furnished packages in properties, broadband with Wi-Fi access, and even home automation systems. In short, as a tenant you’ll have lots of flexibility at your fingertips.
Signature Homes puts on regular complimentary lifestyle activities to engage with its tenants, and these can be especially useful for families who are new to Hong Kong and finding their social circles and networks. They include things such as HK heritage tours, family hiking, painting for kids, cosmetic make-up tutorials, flower arrangement classes, golf lessons and more.
