If you have ever been elected to be on your community’s HOA board, you know that an effective communication strategy can go a long way when it comes to making decisions for the neighborhood. While self-management can work for some HOA’s, communication problems can quickly derail a community if not corrected promptly. For this reason, it is a great idea to bring in an HOA management in Weld County you can trust to make sure that homeowners in the community are truly heard, and requests are taken care of on time. Keep reading to learn more from the 365 Real Property Management team about how a professional HOA management company can help mitigate the following communication issues common in HOA communities.
Mitigate HOA Communication Issues By Hiring HOA Management Weld County Can Depend On
HOA Not Addressing Homeowner Concerns
One of the most common communication issues that an HOA management company like 365 RPM can help with is making sure that residents in the community feel heard by their HOA board members. With community members far outweighing board members in terms of numbers, it can become difficult for board members to address every concern that is detailed from community members. Due to the hectic schedules of the HOA board members who are also responsible for many of the day-to-day management activities in communities without a professional HOA management company, resident concerns may not fully be grasped by the board members. Hiring an HOA management company can help with addressing these concerns to make sure that residents feel appreciated, complaints are taken seriously, and requests are taken care of quickly.
Confusing or Unclear Community Policies
While many communication problems that arise in HOA communities are verbal, these issues can also bleed into policies that take shape in written form. Community rules and regulations are important for allowing residents to know how the community should be run and what violates those terms. This would typically be created by an HOA management company in coordination with an attorney, but for communities that do not have an HOA management company to help with this, unclear policies may be created instead. Not having clear written community policies can result in violations of these policies by residents, problems with community insurance coverages, and noncompliance with local Weld County laws. Hiring a professional HOA Management company like 365 RPM can alleviate all these complications to ensure your community is running smoothly and legally.
Emotionally Charged Communication from Board Members
If you’ve ever heard of the expression of being too close to the situation to make a sound decision, this can be especially true for HOA board members. Since HOA board members are also part of the community that they govern, it is easy for a situation to become heated or emotional fast. While emotions aren’t always a bad thing when it comes to your community, the wrong emotional approach to communication from an HOA can result in homeowner complaints, lawsuits, and a perceived lack of professionalism in the community. Hiring an unbiased third-party HOA management company can help to keep homeowners happy, keep confidential matters private, and provide objectivity when making decisions for the community.

“365 Real Property Management is a big step up from the previous HOA management we had. I’ve always been able to hold someone in the office, get a callback, or get a response from any question or issue I had. Their online service is easy to use and I was able to have my HOA dues auto drawn from my bank account.”
