Q: Our Board is collecting bids for management services. Are you accepting new clients? 

A: Yes, we are accepting new clients! 

Q: What package would you recommend to our community?

A: Based on our management experience and current client packages, we recommend the Gold+ to the majority of condominium and townhome neighborhoods; the Gold or Gold+ for large, single family or mixed neighborhoods; and the Silver for very small (less than 45 single family homes).  

Q: How is pricing determined? 

A: Most management companies have a price range they charge per lot count to determine price. There are several factors that are considered when determining a service price. The basic factors are the size of the communtity (number of dwellings, the amenities, etc.) and the type of dwellings (attached vs. detached). Attached homes generate more work orders – which require more accounting work, contractor communications etc. The more amenities you have (landscape, irrigation, clubhouse, playground, pool, ponds, etc.) the more vendors you use, the more accouting work there is. The assumed number of meetings and inspections are also factored in. 

Q: We are currently charged extra for all mailed notices – late notices, statements, meeting annoucements, etc. Are there extra fees outside of the service price?

A: Our set service package includes the printing and postage cost for most mailings. The Annual Meeting Annoucements and the Annual Budget & Coupon documents are required to be mailed to all Association members per the State of North Carolina. Keeping this in mind and knowing our clients prefer set prices for budgeting purposes, we include the cost of both legally required mailings in all service contracts. All service packages also include the printing and postage costs for past due accounts (unless they are turned over to a collection attorney). We also include the cost of at least 2 other discretionary mailings (such as newsletters) in our Gold and Gold+ packages.
