Long before the HOA takes over, there is a great deal of strategic planning and construction that goes into creating a residential community. Houses and amenities don’t just appear out of nowhere. They are carefully planned, developed, and placed. The structure and governance of the neighborhood is decided upon as well. This is a lot for builders and developers to manage on their own.
Partnering with a property management company like Kuester can provide professionals with the guidance and support they need to create a more successful community.
Insight into the market: Property managers are well-versed in what it takes to run an effective HOA and what homeowners are looking for as they browse new homes and communities. They can collaborate with developers on planning to determine which features would be most attractive, how to best utilize available space, and what the overall look and feel of the neighborhood should be.
Support getting organized: Once the community begins to take shape, the developer must create and implement a governance structure, collection processes, marketing plans, social programs, and much more. There are many documents and permits that must be filed before construction or management can continue. A property manager can help the developer to put all of these pieces in place and support their creation.
Access to valuable resources: In addition to a wealth of market and HOA knowledge, property managers also have a network of resources at their disposal. From sub-contractors to landscapers, they can support developers in building connections and partnering with trusted vendors to meet community needs.
Ease transitions: As homeowners begin to trickle in, property managers can assist with promoting features of the neighborhood, answering questions and addressing concerns, providing necessary governing documents, and establishing the HOA. Once the developer is ready to transition control, the property manager can help with this process as well to keep things running more smoothly.
