Derby 2015 was another record year for Derby Home Rental LLC, my business that helps Louisville, Kentucky-area homeowners rent out their homes for Derby weekend. This year 58 homes advertised and 38 of them rented—both all-time highs.
Over the past year, I redesigned the website with a responsive theme that looks better on mobile browsers and devices, installed a SSL certificate to improve the site’s security, took several measures to speed up the site’s load time, commissioned a new logo, and added a Tiny Letter newsletter that informs subscribers when a new home advertises on the site.
In addition, I created or overhauled our social media profiles. You can now keep up with the latests ads via
Derby Home Rentals also was mentioned in an Aol Travel article on the Kentucky Derby.
Thanks to everyone who advertised and rented a home this year. And, remember—the earlier you advertise your home for Derby weekend 2016, the better your chances of finding a renter.
