12 Things to Consider in HOA Management

More than 25% of the U.S. population lives in a community association. There are nearly 50,000 homeowners associations (HOA's) or common interest developments (CID's) within California alone. The aggregate annual revenues generated by CID's in the state of California is estimated at over $12 billion. 88% of homeowners say their association's rules help protect and enhance their property values. So why do HOA's suffer such a bad reputation? It's about how you govern the community and the management style. This business partnership can make all the difference in the world and have a direct impact on quality of life as well as property values. So, it's that important to consider the services and qualities needed for the best possible outcome.

To help facilitate the discussion amongst Board Members, we've compiled a list of thought-provoking questions based upon our experience, which identify the most important areas of concern for a typical community association.
