Four Ways to Make Your HOA More Effective
There are many benefits for residents living in a community run by an HOA, and there are also strong reasons why a homeowners association should consider partnering with a community management firm. If you’re a busy volunteer serving your neighborhood’s homeowners association, give us a call today at 225-271-3906. Here are four reasons to pick up the phone:
1. We’ll Save You Time
We know it takes time for volunteer board members to run their association. On any given day you might be responding to homeowner calls, arranging maintenance appointments for various everyday repairs, writing enforcement letters, dealing with your grounds contractor, posting assessment payments and preparing financial statements, and consulting with your attorney on collections and other legal matters. And that doesn’t even include your paying job or your personal responsibilities! If your board service is veering into a full-time job, you might want to pay someone to treat your community like one. We are here to help!
2. We Bring Knowledge & Expertise
In addition to technical specifications and various questions of law, finance and governance, you need to have more than a passing familiarity with local, state and federal laws that apply to the everyday workings of your community. Yours wouldn’t be the first board to feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of knowledge it must possess. Good professional managers like ours pride ourselves on staying ahead of the curve through continuing education and involvement in the industry.
3. We Provide Your Property With Continuity
Board members might come and go, but a community management manager can offer a common thread that links one administration to the next. Why does this matter? Think about the importance of continuity when it comes to record keeping, budgeting, dealings with contractors, suppliers, and professional service providers, and even the relationships you’ve developed with your residents. Residents will move in and out, but we will be your trusted partner for the long haul.
4. We Make Your Role More Convenient
Your board should be a decision-making body, but too often the day-to-day distractions of educating residents and attempting to meet their expectations can pull you away from the big picture. Professional management can provide an administrative buffer, giving your residents the attention they deserve and giving yourself a chance to think. We are just a phone call away, and are here for the same reasons you are: for the good of your community. Call us at 225-271-3906.
