HOA Compliance enforcement is a core task of property management. As a process, it can be time-consuming, tedious, and difficult to keep track of, not to mention laden with the landmines of homeowner pushback and ignorance of community regulations, and even feuding neighbors. I’ve heard a number of anecdotes from property managers, who take the brunt of resentment held by a small number of their residents for the rules. Fortunately, there are really great tools available to property managers to help streamline inspections and enforcement, saving time, keeping track of escalation, and communicating more effectively with homeowners.
When it comes to streamlining and becoming more efficient, automation is key. Most managers are ditching the old pen and paper method of HOA violations capture in favor of today’s software solutions and mobile apps. If you aren’t using a platform (that you like) now, then you should be shopping for one. Consider these points of automation in comparison to pen and paper:
Firms adopting software can reduce time and overhead while managing more communities, serve more homeowners while fielding fewer calls, and work more efficiently while decreasing margin of error.
