How To Benefit by Partnering with a Community Management Company

November 4, 2022    Education

Creating a thriving community requires a great vision and an experienced community management team to bring it to life. That's why many home builders and developers partner with a professional community management team during the planning phase to ensure that the operational goals of the association are thoughtfully vetted and strategically planned to execute the builder's vision.

As a developer, you know that the success of your project relies heavily on the quality of your community management team and their ability to carry forward the excitement of buying a home into the excitement of being part of a vibrant community-focused neighborhood. That's why it's so important to choose your partner carefully.

Community management companies offer a wide range of services, from maintaining the property and handling resident concerns to overseeing the vendors and responsibility for the community's day-to-day operations. They also provide valuable resources for their developer clients, such as providing guidance on amenity programming and ensuring that the community successfully transitions to homeowner control. At the same time, they are committed to creating communities that deliver exceptional living experiences to homeowners. 

Partnering with a community management company like Crummack Huseby can provide professionals with the guidance and support they need to create a thriving community. 

Insight into the market 

Community management companies play an essential role in developing new neighborhoods and communities. By working with developers to determine the most attractive features and amenities, they can help create neighborhoods appealing to potential homeowners. In addition, they are well-versed in the needs of homeowners and can ensure that those common areas are thoughtfully programmed in a way that is appealing to residents and that the DRE budget is adequate to support the overall needs of the community.  

Support getting organized

Community management companies offer a wide range of services that can benefit developers from the ground up. For example, the developer must create and implement a governance structure, collection processes, social activities, and other important features when the community takes shape. A community management team can help the developer put all these pieces in place and support their vision before the first homeowner moves in.

Access to valuable resources

Property management companies play an important role in developing and maintaining thriving communities. In addition to their market and HOA knowledge, they also have a network of resources that can support developers in meeting community needs. For example, property managers can help connect developers with trusted vendors and provide information on the best landscaping and maintenance practices. By partnering with a community management company, developers can ensure that their community is well-positioned for long-term success.

Ease transitions

Community management companies can be beneficial when setting up and maintaining a healthy HOA. They can ensure the builder's customer service expectations mirror the handoff at closing to the HOA.  They do this by educating members on the benefits of living in an HOA, the purpose of the HOA,  and ensuring the amenities are maintained for their enjoyment. 

Then, when the developer is ready to hand over control, the HOA community manager ensures homeowner board members receive proper board member training to ensure the governance of the association transitions effectively.

Planning an HOA community is a lot of effort, but builders and developers don't have to do it alone.
