For the seventh time in 13 years, Americans living in HOAs and condominiums say they’re satisfied in their communities

Community associations, commonly referred to as homeowners associations (HOAs), condominiums, and housing cooperatives, remain preferred places to call home for millions of Americans, according to the 2018 Homeowner Satisfaction Survey, conducted by Zogby Analytics for the Foundation for Community Association Research (FCAR). The majority (90%) of survey respondents say their association’s rules protect and enhance their property values (62%) or have a neutral effect (28%). Eighty-four percent of those surveyed expressed that neighbors elected to the governing board “absolutely” or “for the most part” serve the best interests of their communities.

Nationwide, 63 percent of surveyed homeowners and condominium association members live in single family homes, followed by 17 percent who live in condominiums and 14 percent who live in townhomes. Zogby, the independent polling and research firm, used random sampling to identify association residents and asked them to rate their homeowners association experience on a scale of one to five, with one being very bad and five being very good. Sixty-three percent say they are “very” or “somewhat” satisfied, with 22 percent reporting a neutral response.

Community association residents in the data sample commented on other association benefits:

  • Nearly 73 percent of residents said their community managers provide value and support to residents and their associations.
  • Most common monthly assessments are in the $100–$300 range, with condominium assessments slightly higher than homeowners association fees (17 percent are more than $500 per month).
  • In addition, more than half of respondents nationwide (54%) feel they are paying just the right amount in assessments.
  • Two-thirds of surveyed homeowners and condominium association owners have, at some point, attended their community association board meetings—with the majority attending four board meetings per year.
  • More than 60 percent of respondents believe that associations should insist that all homeowners pay their assessments, and attorneys should be involved, if necessary, when homeowners are delinquent in paying their assessments.

“Community associations remain an essential component of the U.S. housing market, andonce againa large majority of Americans who live in community associations report that they are happy and satisfied in their communities,” says CAI Chief Executive Officer Thomas Skiba, CAE. “The most recent survey validates that the majority of homeowners believe their boards are serving their community, that their fees fall within a reasonable range, and that being a part of their community association enhances and protects their property values.”

Today, 69 million Americans live in 342,000 common-interest communities, according to the 2016 National and State Statistical Review for Community Association Data. From city-sized, master-planned communities and multi-building condominium complexes to urban cooperatives and small homeowners associations built into small tracks of open suburban spaces, the new survey findings also show that homeowners want to see less—or at least not more—government oversight and control of community associations.

The Foundation for Community Association Research conducted similar surveys in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2012, 2014, and 2016. Results can be accessed at http://cairf.org/research/survey_homeowner_past.aspx.

Preparing for Hurricane Florence

With the uncertainty facing all of us with the path of Hurricane Florence we would like to provide you with some important information regarding storm preparedness-

Before a Storm:

  1. Terms. A “watch” is a notification for residents to be on alert of a potential storm, and a “warning” indicates that a hurricane is expected in your area.
  2. Insurance and Important information. Review your insurance plans and have copies of important documents, such as driver’s licenses, medical information, and insurance cards.
  3. Plan ahead.  Create an emergency plan in the event that an evacuation is necessary, and keep emergency contact information handy. Don’t forget to consider your pets when planning for a possible evacuation.
  4. Supplies. Plan ahead of time by creating emergency kits filled with survival necessities such as bottled water, non-perishable snacks, medication, batteries, blankets, crank radios and flashlights.
  5. SC Emergency Manager The official app of SCEMD. It is designed for users to build their own emergency plans, to keep track of supplies and to stay connected to loved ones. In addition, coastal residents can now “Know Your Zone” instantly using the maps feature as well as locate the nearest emergency shelters when they are open. The tools section features a flashlight, locator whistle and the ability to report damage to emergency officials. The SC Emergency Manager can function without the need of a data connection, which is useful when basic utilities are offline. Get it here

Make plans to secure your property.

  • Be sure trees and shrubs around your home are well-trimmed so they are more wind resistant.
  • Clear loose and clogged rain gutters and downspouts.
  • Reinforce your garage doors. If wind enters a garage, it can cause dangerous and expensive structural damage.
  • Bring in all outdoor furniture, decorations, garbage cans and anything else that is not tied down.
  • Determine how and where to secure your boat.
  • Install a generator for emergencies.

ADDITIONALLY………If a hurricane is likely in your area, you should:

  • Listen to the radio or TV for information.
  • Secure your home, close storm shutters and secure outdoor objects or bring them indoors.
  • Turn off utilities if instructed to do so. Otherwise, turn the refrigerator thermostat to its coldest setting and keep its doors closed.
  • Turn off propane tanks.
  • Avoid using the phone, except for serious emergencies.
  • Keep a supply of water for sanitary purposes, such as cleaning and flushing toilets. Fill the bathtub and other larger containers with water.
  • Make sure you have three gallons of water per family member.
  • Refill your prescriptions
  • Fill up your car with gas
  • Withdraw a week’s worth of cash since power outages may interrupt these services temporarily.
  • Place important, valuable papers such as your log of possessions in waterproof bags
  • Have canned food for at least three days and a can opener

During a Storm:

  1. Listen. Listen to local radio and television broadcasts for current conditions and recommended actions. You can also sign up to receive emergency alerts on your mobile device here.
  2. Evacuate. When directed by local authorities, you may be required to evacuate. Know your zone and evacuation route  in advance.
  3. Shelter. If you are unable to evacuate, seek shelter in an interior room, closet, or hallway on the lowest level.

After a Storm: 

  1. Be aware of dangers. Be cautious of potential dangers, such as downed power lines, contaminated water, or possible gas leaks.
  2. Document damage. If possible, take photos of the damage on your property or residence, in addition to making written notes.
  3. Be cautious of scams. Be alert to possible disaster-related scams such as fraudulent phone calls or price gouging. Do not give any personal information, including credit card and bank account information, to unverified callers.

More helpful hints…..

  • Make sure you have pet food and supplies for three days.
  • Contact a trained expert to turn off damaged utilities and appliances instead of trying to do it yourself.
  • Drink only bottled water until tap water is deemed safe.
  • Drive only if necessary and avoid flooded roads and washed-out bridges. Stay off the streets. If you must go out, watch for fallen objects including downed electrical wires, weakened walls, bridges, roads and sidewalks.
  • Keep away from loose or dangling power lines and report them immediately to the power company.
  • Walk carefully around the outside your home and check for loose power lines, gas leaks and structural damage before entering.

We hope that you find this information helpful as you prepare for the effects of Florence.

Please follow the link below for a Hurricane Preparedness Handbook along with a Family Communications Plan for your convenience.
