HOW TO HELP YOUR HOA AVOID A PR CRISIS NOV 17, 2014 Homeowners associations are designed to provide residents with shared neighborhood values and opportunities for decreased ownership responsibility, creating safer and more harmonious communities. To achieve the full benefits of this goal, HOA developments typically require all homeowners in a certain area to be a member of the organization and can also compel these members to pay HOA management fees to cover the cost of common expenses and occasionally the services of an HOA management company. These fees, which can occur at monthly, quarterly, or yearly intervals, also encourage residents to attend and participate in regular HOA board meetings. In most cases, these qualities will help communities and their residents thrive. Unfortunately, in some, these organizations might go too far to protect their communities. In 2014, Bob Willits, a disabled veteran in central Indiana, received a notice from [...]
THREE WAYS TO KNOW IF YOU SHOULD HIRE AN HOA MANAGEMENT SERVICE OCT 30, 2014 In 2012, an estimated 63.4 million individuals were members of a homeowners association, or HOA, in the United States. These organizations, which help provide residents with shared neighborhood values and opportunities for reduced ownership responsibilities, first emerged in the U.S. in the mid-19th century and have become increasingly popular since 1964. Today, HOAs typically emerge after a developer has finished building a new neighborhood as a way to help the area continue to thrive. However, many HOAs may find themselves asking one question: how will the community board successfully manage and implement changes in the community? Even if an HOA is managed successfully, your neighborhood may still need a way to effectively institute changes and fix problems. Fortunately, homeowners association property management services can provide HOA management solutions to fill this gap. But how [...]
HOW AN HOA CAN HELP YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD THRIVE OCT 29, 2014 As anyone who lives in a neighborhood or community can likely attest, residential areas can often require a great deal of unexpected work to function properly. For example, it is important to ensure that common areas and the appearance of the street meet basic standards to keep individuals and families in the area happy and safe. However, it can be difficult to organize maintenance and other services to meet these requirements. In cases like these, communities may find it beneficial to turn to a residential property management company, otherwise known as a homeowner association property management firm or HOA property management firm, to help them implement planned changes to their neighborhood. While HOA management solutions are seen as a relatively recent addition to life in a community, homeowners associations first emerged in the United States in the mid-19th [...]
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN AN HOA MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT OCT 26, 2014 As of 2012, an estimated 25.9 million homeowners were members of the 325,203 total homeowners associations (HOA) in the United States. The structure of these organizations is typically very simple: every property owner in a HOA development is a member of the neighborhood association and therefore required to pay membership fees on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis. These homeowners are encouraged to attend HOA meetings and even run for positions on their local board. In exchange for these payments, homeowners have the chance to reap a number of benefits, including shared neighborhood values and decreased ownership responsibility. If you and your neighborhood are interested in forming or joining an HOA, however, you'll first have to sign an HOA management agreement. This agreement, which lays out the rules you must abide by as a member of [...]
DOES YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD NEED A HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION MANAGEMENT SERVICE? OCT 24, 2014 Homeowners associations originally emerged in the United States in the mid-19th century and began growing in popularity in 1964. Today, homeowners associations are a common community feature that are typically implemented after a developer completes their work in a neighborhood. For this reason, an estimated 25.9 million homeowners were members of a homeowners association in 2012, a number equivalent to around 63.4 million individuals. But while a number of HOAs are successfully run by boards comprised of community members, many homeowners simply do not have the time necessary to successfully accomplish their goals for their neighborhood. Fortunately, a solution has emerged: homeowners association property management services now provide property management services to ensure that every HOA runs as smoothly and effectively as possible, creating the best environment for residents. Homeowners associations, or HOA, are designed to provide [...]
