One of the best selling points to an HOA community is its amenities. Whether it's a community pool, fitness center, or community events, amenities heighten resale and property values. Amenities also provide a strong sense of community harmony in an HOA neighborhood. This is because everyone has the same benefits.
How does each HOA community amenity stay in tip-top shape? HOA subcommittees and vendors help but come with a learning curve and project-based expenses. If you don't have the bandwidth or HOA budget, the best solution is a community management company.
Hire a local community management company with expertise in amenity management. We have skills to help this area of your homeowners association-regulated neighborhood. Here's how community management companies like IKO make it easier for HOA boards:
We have extensive resources. Community management teams have educated individuals with certifications from the Community Associations Institute. IKO's team has experience in many helpful areas. This includes HOA management, accounting, construction, administration, and more. It also covers all amenity needs from start to finish.
Because of our team's broad background, we access extensive online and print resources. We research educational opportunities to better amenity management services and provide content. This helps keep residents up-to-date on amenity schedules, additions, and renovations.
We're local and hands-on. When you partner with a local management company, you get intimate local market knowledge. This is necessary for community-specific tasks like hiring contractors for amenity maintenance and preparing local weather-related services.
We partner with trusted contractors in Montgomery, Frederick, Prince George's, and Carroll counties. We also partner with contractors in Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia.
As we take care of your community, you have more free time. Use this time to establish and/or expand personal connections to residents. You can also use this time to focus on bigger projects or resident concerns.
We're communicative. Community managers should speak with more than the HOA board, even about amenities. IKO communicates with subcommittees, residents, and contractors to discuss the benefits and goals of your HOA community.
We offer a complete online brochure of community services for master-planned/single-family, townhomes, and high rise and condominiums. It includes assistance with everyday needs including the following:
Common area landscaping, maintenance, and preservation
Playground and park maintenance
Community pool openings
Customized community website and newsletters
Vendor selection and management
Welcome books, packages, and manuals
Referrals for association and homeowner maintenance
IKO takes the time to understand your HOA community needs. We adjust our vast experience and knowledge to better suit your short- and long-term goals.
We teach you how to take care of your community amenities. We explain how to keep your community pool blue and dog parks and fitness centers clean and sanitary. We remind you to check on the candy bowl and heating and cooling system in the clubhouse.
Instead of running amenities without your HOA board, IKO wants to partner with each member. By teaching your HOA board how to take care of amenities, you also have the tools to succeed. Start with this quick guide to amenity maintenance.
