Balancing Owner vs. Renter/Guest requirements:
Buildings like yours are often challenged with meeting the long-term interests of unit owners, while ensurig a vacation style experience for short-term renters. Communicative, experienced staff and support teams are recommended to get the highest return on value for your association.
Managing Capital Improvements:
Self-managed boards and staff can find it challenging to effectively manage complex projects, both financially and on a day-to-day basis. The bandwidth and specialized experience required to handle such projects may be monopolizing manager and staff attention, fostering resident dissatisfaction, and may be setting your association up for unintended financial shortfalls.
Staff Efficiency & Resources:
Efficient, knowledgeable and customer-oriented staff is critical for the smooth operation of your building. As a self-managed community, ensuring competitive compensation and adequate benefits for staff while protecting your association from risk and potential liability is often time-consuming and can draw your board into minutiae of day-to-day operations without the benefit of dedicated accounting and human resources teams.
