Searching for a Community Website for your Association?

Here are the top 7 reasons why your HOA Website should be in place:

#1 Increased Property Values

A condo Association website for your condominium will increase property values.

By establishing a credible website (See item 1) you also create a platform for sharing information about your community and its amenities.

You can include a general photo gallery of your neighborhood and some floorplans.

To the same end, you can include listings of properties for sale or soon-to-be listed properties.

Featuring these items in a clear and succinct online condo website will draw attention and interest to potential buyers.

A community associaiton website gives your homeowners a competitive edge to reach a larger audience and thus increases property value.

#2 Improved Homeowner Communication

Imagine a world where every resident must call a management agency or on site property manager just to get answers to simple questions.

Typically an endless game of phone tag or email tag ensues.

A condo association website will drastically cut back on unnecessary communication efforts and the need for a constant point of contact.

An Association website for your residential Florida property is an efficient move.

No more time spent waiting for a call back or email attachment.

Simplify by visiting or directing residents to visit the website and find the exact document they need, or the answer to a variety of questions. 

#3 Marketing Opportunities  

Not only can you increase property values through a community Association website, you can even generate a stream of income for the association.

A website platform, creates a channel of communication to a specific audience.

An Association website thus creates a channel of communication with your residents and homeowners and the community at large.

With proper consideration and Board approval, your condo website can offer marketing opportunities as a stream of income for the Association itself.

A website for your Florida condo Association can open a space for marketing opportunities. 

#4 Less Burden on the Board and Management

In running a Florida Condo Association many tasks are left to the Board and the Management company.

An HOA website is a great way to remove some of this burden from those members.

Because tools like Frequently Asked Questions, generic forms or other community documents and information are available digitally 24/7, neither the Board nor the Management team need to be involved in these inquiries.

A condo website leaves the Board and Management of your community Association with more time to address what really matters: the well-being of your condominium.

Dovetailing on Efficiency.

If your Association does not have to pay someone, whether an onsite property manager, or a property management company, to sit and wait for phone calls or hand out documents, your Association will save time and money.
