You may own a condo, or perhaps you own a townhouse and the homeowners need a better way to manage the needs of everyone living there. If you are looking for an association management company to help you care for the needs of condo or townhouse owners, there are a few things to look for to ensure your properties are well taken care of.
Here are some best practices of the right association management team to look for.
They Get Association Member's Feedback
A good association management team doesn't just come into your complex or condo building and decide what's best for the owners and renters there, they work with those living there to create the right environment for everyone.
This means they get members' feedback on what they would like to see in regard to lawn care, home maintenance, exterior decor and gardening, and more. A good association management team will talk to members and send surveys, call owners, and take into consideration everyone's concerns and ideas for what they would like to see.
They Have Good Communication
A best practice the right association management company has is they will communicate effectively and often with association members. This means, there is someone on staff who will take calls at any time from owners and renters regarding concerns over maintenance, emergency fixes, show clearing and grass cutting, and more.
They listen to and implement as many ideas as possible that association members have for improving the condo building or townhouse complex. They will work with members on adding items like playgrounds or swimming pools.
They have good communication skills and can help ease the minds of members.
They Are One Step Ahead
While a good association management team listens to its members on what they would like to see happen in regard to repairs or improvements on the complex, they should also be one step ahead in knowing what might need to be done or improved before the members do.
This means they are on top of all repairs, maintenance, and upgrades to the building and complex before any of the members even know they need to be done. If any upgrades to the units or homes are to be implemented such as installing smart technology, changing exterior doors, or upgrading carpeting in the building, the association will communicate that to the members and get their feedback before any work is completed.
The point is, they are aware of current trends and how they can improve their member's life and even increase the resale value of the homes.
