Do you currently self-manage your condo community or homeowners’ association? Do you wish there was support to make the job easier? Maybe one of your board members is stepping down or moving out of the community; maybe you are small and don’t have many people to help out; maybe you don’t have many unit owners interested in volunteering; or maybe your volunteers don’t have the financial aptitude, time or interest in doing the monthly financial management. Do you wish there were condo & HOA self-management support services?
Help is available. You can get over 55% of the work that full management companies provide for less than half of their fee.
Hiring condo & HOA self-management support services will reduce the time required to be a Board member. You will provide a higher level of transparency and safety to your financial process. You will give unit owners access features they want like online payments and a portal with community documents they can access 24/7. And you will enjoy a more stress-free community life.
