Running a homeowners association is a lot of responsibility. There are many moving parts and a lot of rules and regulations to keep in mind. The HOA is responsible for providing a safe, enjoyable place to live while upholding property value and integrity of the neighborhood. In a new statement to the press, Kuester Management Group sheds light on how a qualified property management group can support HOAs in doing just that.
“Being part of the HOA board is big undertaking, but also an important commitment and a way for members to give back and take a more active role in their community,” explains Bryan Kuester, President of Kuester Management Group. “Some members may be hesitant to join the board because they’re not sure they have the right knowledge or training. Partnering with a property management company can help alleviate some of this stress because they’re there to guide you and ensure that proper rules are followed.”
A professional management company brings with it a vast amount of resources. From providing board members with training opportunities to putting in place solid financial management, a management company can bring a lot to the table. “You don’t have to know everything to be a part of the board,” comments Kuester. “You just have to know where to turn for help with what you don’t know and when it’s time to delegate.”
Property management companies are well-versed in HOA rules and regulations. They can support the board in more effective enforcement of policies as well as steps to take when rules need to be added, changed, or removed. They understand state and legal requirements as well and can mitigate risk when issues arise within the HOA by knowing the proper channels to go through.
“Another benefit of partnering with an HOA management group is that it can reduce the burden on the board,” says Kuester. “Your time is important, and there are many services that a management company can manage for you to allow the board to focus on more pressing issues.
You can better prioritize how to spend your time and resources. A property manager can even work with you to organize HOA meetings and get more homeowners engaged.”
Even smaller HOAs can benefit from more organized management. It is important to ensure the HOA is running as smoothly as possible and members are confident in the leadership and the direction the community is headed. “Property managers are on your side and committed to doing what is in the best interest of the HOA and its members. We are available to provide as few or as many services as your HOA needs to support more efficient operations.”
