Finding the Right HOA Management Company

Finding the right HOA management company entails a number of options and questions to take into account. Below are the most crucial:

Services Provided

Every HOA management company has its own list of services, but some services are offered by all quality companies. It’s smart to ask them for their list as this allow you to set realistic expectations. You also need to know their level of involvement with the community. Do they have a proactive or reactive approach to management?

History

Do some research on the background of the HOA management company you’re eyeing. Try to learn more about the company, especially the amount of experience they have. Talk to references (they should be willing to provide some names and phone numbers) and check out online reviews on them. Also find out how many employees they have, what the types of properties they manage, and whether they’ve been managing thee properties with success.

Updated Business Knowledge and Practices

Choose an HOA management company that is updated when it comes to laws, regulations and management issues. You want them to be able to handle whatever potential complications come along. Especially in the event of a lawsuit, you need to be able to give your management company 100% trust.

Knowing how HOA laws constantly evolve, you should choose a management company that is able to implement important changes fast. In addition, the company should be able to advice the HOA board when they have to make decisions, making sure that all legalities are followed.

Culture and Values

It’s worth researching whether the values and culture of the HOA management company you’re considering reflects your community’s. Otherwise, you will only keep disagreeing with the company and eventually defeat your purpose for having them.

Certainly, you and your management company should be on the same page when it comes to your community. It’s important to talk to your management company about your core values – and theirs. Dig deeper into their company principles about valuing community, upholding transparency and good communication, and whether or not they care about the communities they’re working for. Care is the key here. They should be sincere in looking after the welfare of your community.

Price

Consider at least two prospective HOA management companies and compare their prices and services.

However, don’t fixate yourself on the bid price. Some companies have a higher contract price because they offer quality. Remember that cheap isn’t automatically the best, but neither is the priciest. And make sure you read the fine print thoroughly.

Whichever HOA management company you hire, concentrate on what is most beneficial to your community. Management should always follow your HOA board’s direction and make community welfare the number one priority.
