HOA for the Holidays

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Dec 12, 2018 8:00:00 AM

 

Being home with our loved ones is a way to celebrate family, friends, and the successes of the year. As we gather in family homes, decorated for the holidays, the role of our HOA’s might become more apparent, especially when it comes to enforcing the rules.

Don't Wait, Start Planning for Software in 2019 Now!

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Dec 6, 2018 12:06:13 PM

Hard to believe, but we are hurdling toward holiday season and will soon be arrive at 2019, armed with New Year’s resolutions that we may or may not keep. Some resolutions can’t wait until after the holidays, though. Now is the time for small businesses to begin the year-end accounting crunch and make budgets and projections for the New Year. If you are planning on changing software, getting started now will give you enough lead time to ensure everything is set up and ready to go on January 1. In this end-of-year process, let’s consider the adoption of new software, namely eUnify software, in terms of how it might fit in your budget, improve your operation, and adapt to your business, helping you meet your goals for 2019.

HOA Board, Thanks for All Your Help and Happy Thanksgiving

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Nov 21, 2018 8:36:00 AM


Thanksgiving is more than shameless gluttony and frenzied shopping; it is truly a transcendent holiday, an American tradition open to all, regardless of religious and cultural backgrounds. It’s an end of season celebration of harvest and a great opportunity to take stock of what matters in life and hopefully feel a bit of gratitude for the people around us. In many families, each member takes a turn identifying something they are grateful for before digging into the turkey feast. While your HOA likely is the last thing on your mind during the holiday season (unless you’ve been cited for leaving decorations up for too long), consider this post a reminder to be thankful for the HOA Board, even if you don’t make mention of it when it’s your turn to say what you’re grateful for at the table.

What's Gobbling Up Your Time?

Posted by Chris Kelsey on Nov 14, 2018 8:07:00 AM

I was re-watching Mad Men on Netflix the other night and looking at the portrayal of a 1960s office, with nothing more high-tech than typewriters and phones, I thought to myself, how did anyone get anything done back then? Late in the first season Sterling Cooper did get an Optimus Prime sized copy machine, but no computers, database, internet, software, API’s, etc. in sight. I probably shouldn’t judge productivity in the past while sitting on the couch watching hours of TV, but the thought occurred to me in this Netflix binge that 50 years later, a lot of offices might still be stuck in the past. Since Turkey Day is near, let’s consider how some tech trends fight what “gobbles” up our time at work:

Countdown to 2019, Time to Switch Accounting

Posted by Chris Kelsey on Nov 7, 2018 8:15:00 AM

As we count down to the end of the year, we get ready for advent calendars, 12 days of Christmas, 8 days of Hanukkah, and of course 6-8 weeks of manic shopping and preparations for parties and guests. This time of year is a chance to review, report, assess, and make goals for improvement in the New Year. While many of you are busy in roles as Board Members and managers, preparing budgets and year-end accounting, one major improvement to consider for next year is accounting software. eUnify offers a full accounting platform for community management complete with powerful automation and integration advantages over competing titles. Here is a short list of key accounting features:

HOA Horror Stories – Happy Halloween!

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Oct 31, 2018 8:11:00 AM

We all hear the Homeowner Association horror stories, because those are the ones that make catchy headlines. The truth is that at least 4 out of 5 of associations in the US are quietly humming along, keeping community order and preserving local home values. The remaining 20% give us a list of scary stories to celebrate the nightmare of suburbia created by dysfunctional HOA boards, predatory vendors, and petty neighbors alike, here are 3 stories:

Social Media, and Other Drugs

Posted by Chris Kelsey on Sep 25, 2018 11:35:29 AM

Earlier this morning, NPR broadcasted a story about recent scientific findings that a dose of ecstasy (MDMA) actually makes octopuses, otherwise notoriously asocial animals, display a greater degree of sociality and maybe even affection(?)1. Social media seems to be the most prevalent drug in today’s culture. It connects us in ways we couldn’t have imagined even ten years ago and provides us with instant access to news, personalized content, opinions, rantings, reviews, and photos of our friends, family, politicians, and cultural influencers. We carry the internet in our pockets, but does all this instant information gratification through social media actually make us more social or more affectionate? I’m not saying a drug of any kind, if it can be defined as such, is justified because it makes us somehow nicer to each other. This post is intended simply to explore social media in terms of its potentially addictive nature, consider some social media pitfalls related to how members of your community interact, and advocate for the need of a more formalized web presence for any community association.

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Sep 5, 2018 12:11:11 PM

Cha nces are, in addition to a  website, your HOA or Property Management Company uses and/or  participates in some form of social networking. Whether it is Twitter, Facebook or YouTube, social media is a great way to share information as well as build an active online community. Social media can be used to remind members about upcoming board meetings and other community events, open discussion forums for planned maintenance projects, or gather feedback from residents regarding community topics.  The next three week will dive into Social Media aspects for HOAs and Property Management.

RFP's via uManage...Give Me A Bid!

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Aug 29, 2018 10:02:19 AM


As the summer starts to wind down and the weather cools off, it’s probably time to close down the poolr and prepare for fall leaves and winter snow removal (outside of Phoenix of course). These and other projects that fall under the purview of board members and association managers require due diligence in vetting vendors. Management companies typically work with a list of preferred vendors, but numerous bids are should be sought to get the best vendor, price, and final result for a project.
