You’ve been thinking about it for many years and you finally took the plunge – buying a home or condo with a condo association or homeowner association that would cut the grass for you, provide a pool you don’t need to clean, have a well-equipped gym with televisions, sauna and showers, and all the sports amenities to keep you from getting bored: basketball, volleyball, horse shoes and mini golf. You moved in and it was a glorious day!
Then time passed and your AC started acting up, your water heater wasn’t producing water as hot as you like it, the pool has beer bottles strewn when it clearly states none were allowed. Parking was becoming territorial and getting your guests in for the weekend became like sneaking a bottle of booze to a relative in assisted living.
Your daughter’s birthday party came and you couldn’t get the picnic area by the pool booked in time, because of work. And, to top it all off, all the guests you wanted to impress with your paradise living saw an unkempt lawn with bald spots and shabby bushes.
You called the office from work, since you can’t get there during office hours, only to be told the person responsible for (fill in the blank) was out of the office. A note is taken and promised it would be taken care of this week. Another three months later, your AC is still struggling, your shower is lukewarm, you’re picking up bottles so as to not be embarrassed in front of guests, and the serenity of a beautiful lawn and bushes is gone. What happened to the dream? It seems management, while well-intentioned, is not MANAGING too well!
Imagine if management ran smoothly. I mean, they communicated like a well-oiled machine. When someone called with an issue, the manager or superintendent responded quickly and got it fixed as soon as possible.
Imagine not having to call at all! What if you could just turn on your smartphone and send in an issue report, inform management the pool beer-bottle regulation was being ignored, your lawn looked like it went through chemo, and while you’re at it, you booked the picnic area with volleyball court for your book club – AND IT ALL GOT DONE!
Did you know that the state of Florida passed laws that mandate condo associations and homeowner associations must provide a website for its owners by January 1, 2019, where they can access certain information easily? And as Florida goes (when it comes to community associations) so goes the rest of the United States – eventually? Information like:
And a Facebook page or landing page with links won’t work! It has to be able to allow YOU, the owner, to create your own account and see anything and everything pertaining to you: messages from the association, updates, your communication history (so you can prove you told them 3 months ago), and more!
The best part is they can do this for the cost of a large pizza with all the fixins’ and a 2-liter bottle of Coke—delivered—once a month – it won’t affect your fees hardly at all! So, if they aren’t aware of this, you should tell them about CHOPAS.
