Technically, you’re already involved. When you purchased your home within a planned community, you are a member of that community. You have the ability to vote on new rules, regulations, etc. Your community may assign a property management company, but the HOA board always controls the rules in your community. If you want to get more involved, joining the HOA Board may be the natural place for you.
This month we’re focusing on all things related to becoming or being an HOA Board member. We always encourage homeowners to get involved in their community, whether it’s through social events or lending a hand. For those who want to make a yearly commitment by joining their HOA Board, don’t be afraid to jump in, it can be a fun and educational experience.

When researching a property management company, the technology they use is important to help increase the ease of awareness and communication for homeowners and HOA Board Members.

Before you sign with a property management company, have them walk you through their technology.
Now that you’ve created your timeline and its tasks, Crummack Huseby’s financial experts want to share insights on creating and implementing the smartest budgets for your community. It’s important to consider expense questions your Board should ask, what your management company’s accountant should know, and thoughts on the timing of assessment increases.
