Quick Tip: Making Websites Easy for Your Homeowners Association
Communication between the homeowners association and its residents is key. It's important for a neighborhood to keep both current residents and future residents up-to-date on the latest neighborhood information, newsletters and official documents. A website is a great tool to disseminate this information to other people. Plus, this information is at their fingertips 24/7.
A website helps reduce administrative expenses. Not only does a website help relieve the administrative burden on the association board members but it also reduces costs for copying, mailing and responding to requests since fewer items have to be mailed.
After a board meeting you can post your minutes on the website so that residents can be quickly informed. No more excuses from residents that they didn't know the rules and regulations. They can always view them on the website. Paperless processes will also allow visitors to fill out forms online which will be emailed to the person(s) you designate. You can then respond to the resident via email versus snail mail.
Your website should show the pride residents have in maintaining the quality of their homes and neighborhood. A website will help show that added value to the community.
