Why Have A Professional Reserve Study?

Learn the importance of a professional reserve study…

As a business, the Board needs a business plan for the maintenance of the assets of the association. Which assets or parts thereof (i.e. partial pavement replacements, phasing roofing replacements) will require repair or replacement, when will they need replacement, and at what cost are the most important questions one must ask in determining a forecast of future capital projects.

When managing the contributions (assessments) of hundreds of homeowners, it is essential to provide as accurate a forecast as possible. Professional Reserve Study providers have the extra expertise from conducting hundreds of assignments each year to apply engineering success stories from other associations and determine the most reasonable reserve budget that is consistent with Board objectives.

Tip: Welcome New Neighbors

It's easy to make new neighbors feel welcome…

Make your neighborhood feel like the friendly inviting place that your new neighbors imagined when they purchased their home.

Your neighborhood only gets one chance to make a first impression.

Simple Acts Go A Long Way:

  • Introduce yourself
  • Keep the initial conversation short – Moving is busy and stressful; don’t add to it.
  • Print a neighborhood directory from the website (Premium Only)
  • Offer to help unload – If professional movers are not involved, extra hands unloading the truck are helpful
  • Provide the necessary information to login and become a member of the website
  • Be careful sharing warm memories about the previous owners. (This is their home now)
  • Deliver a hot meal with disposable plates/utensils (Their kitchen may not be unpacked yet)
  • Provide a calendar with HOA meetings, local events, trash collection schedule, etc. (Make this a page on the website)
  • Recognize new move-ins at your next HOA or Neighborhood meeting
  • Create a page on the website with a picture of the new family and a bio (Premium Only)

Keep smiling and greeting your new neighbors every time you see them. A neighbor who feels valued and accepted is more likely to be a positive addition to your community.
