Ever feel like your association’s homeowner communications are going out into a black hole? You’re not alone. Getting important information out into a community is one of the biggest challenges condominium and homeowner associations face these days.
Without effective homeowner communications, what good is all the work your association does to create a wonderful community? Keeping your residents informed of what’s going on – when they need to know – that’s the secret to getting everyone onboard in your community.
Your residents want to know their voices are heard. Your Board wants to hear your residents – and to address concerns, suggestions, and issues as efficiently and effectively as possible. Most associations struggle with communications, but there is an affordable solution.
There are some challenges with homeowner communications:
When time is of the essence, you need help improving homeowner communications. We help you deliver information in a prompt and efficient manner – all with environmental sustainability in mind.
As time passes, information loses its value – if it takes days or weeks to get that information distributed, chances are, it’s too late. Our newsletter and bulletin distribution systems allow information delivery to all community members in a hurry. That way everyone knows what is happening nearby right away.
Traditional communication methods still work for many communities – and print newsletters are always an option, but there are alternatives you may find are even more effective for your association. Homeowners can also choose more environmentally friendly options, including email, social networks updates, text messages, and website updates.
All communications also need to be compliant with your association’s state and local regulations. We take the guesswork out of compliance and help you avoid costly lawsuits, small claims procedures, and situations where attorneys become involved.
It may be time to hire a professional homeowner communications manager if news and information are not being delivered promptly, or if communication between management, the Board, residents, and others falters.
If you’re cringing as you watch printing and delivery costs soar, you’ll find that your association’s communication budget goes a lot further by hiring a professional. This is an especially smart move if your community is large or has multiple locations.
Whether your association decides that it’s time to hire outside help or self-manage, keep your end goals in mind: increased property values and happier community members.
