In real estate, the terms property manager and community manager are often confused. They perform similar jobs, but the differences are major. Both types of management help with the functionality of building complexes, like apartments, but which kind do you need? Let’s take a look at each.

Real estate owners of developments or planned communities find it very beneficial to work with an association or community management service. Management services offer a great deal of expertise, but it’s important to fully realize what is expected of association management and what isn’t. When there is a board of directors involved with running an association, what roles are better handled by the board than management? (more…)
Over the years, homeowners associations (HOAs) have garnered a bad reputation. Everyone likes to point out the flaws associated with HOAs and the nightmares some homeowners have experienced. So many rules and regulations! But the truth is that HOAs can be extremely beneficial…IF they are run properly.
- HOAs ensure your neighborhood looks good. For starters, homeowners associations are in charge of neighborhood-wide landscaping. HOAs also enact certain rules to maintain some sort of uniformity throughout the community. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. The final product: an aesthetically pleasing community anyone would be proud to be a part of.
- Financial stability is another benefit. Well-managed HOAs have reserve studies and funds in place for future repairs and capital improvements.
- Property values are typically higher in communities with HOAs. And who doesn’t want that?
- And More!
As we mentioned (and as you can clearly see), HOAs can be extremely beneficial…IF they are run properly. The problem: HOAs are comprised of volunteers, but expected to act like businesses. In many instances, these associations find themselves in over their heads, especially during often-rocky transitions from one board of directors to the next. The solution: hire a Community Management company. A community management company provides the knowledge, expertise, and stability your HOA needs to remain successful year in and year out.
