Homeowner Education

Now we have the tools to have a tangible anticipated replacement list that evolves so you would know projects coming up whereas before people were just using their own judgement. It's a great tool to educate the rest of the association about why a component is scheduled for replacement, which helps with teaching or convincing owners.

– Roxana DePasquale,
Belleview Biltmore Villas South Garden Four

Paperless Inventory

One aspect of SmartProperty I think many people don't realize is it's a repository of saving documents for your components. So many times in my career I have noticed a board did not have the contract from a former large capital expense, or an estimate that they got years ago has been lost to time. But now, if you get sued or you get push back on an estimate, you have everything you need to defend the Board's decisions right in the component record.

Reserve planning that fits your community’s needs.

  • View anticipated expenditures over 30 years to identify spikes and prevent reserve shortages.
  • Filter by category, phase, status, or date to understand where your replacement reserves are going.
  • Create phased replacement plans.
  • Determine if you will need additional funding options early so you can explore funding alternatives.
  • View at a glance when you will need to cash in CDs or bonds to make funding available for CapEx projects.
  • Preview the effect pending board decisions will have on the budget, and on the community’s future.
  • Create tests by breaking projects into phases or pushing out timelines to buy time for funding to be available for necessary projects. Or build your own custom funding model!
  • Provide homeowners and board members with a summary overview of the financial condition of the reserves, anticipated expenditures, a breakdown of where the money is going and a preview of the future financial state based on current projections.

Saves Time

SmartProperty is allowing me to conduct “what if” analysis on our Reserve study in real time, without the clumsy old process of submitting marked up reports and waiting for a response. I was able to evaluate all my proposed changes in a day, rather than a couple of weeks!

– Jim McCorkle, Board President,
Cantabria Maintenance Corporation

Builds Confidence

SmartProperty allowed us to look at the association’s expenses and budget as a whole. With SmartProperty I was able to run scenarios myself, see all the component costs, and really
pinpoint the best allocations for the community. In 20 years of working in the industry, I have never been more confident with what’s in my reserve study.

– James Niccoli, General Manager

Trilogy at Glen Ivy

Stay on Track

Staying on top of projects in spreadsheets used to be overwhelming. Not anymore. I love using SmartProperty's project tracking tool because it helps track invoices and payments and matches them to the reserves. It makes sure the contract is being followed and the budget stays on track.

– Rick Ruth, First Service Residential

Keep Everybody on the Same Page

Before SmartProperty, the amount of time and communication it would take to complete a project was endless. Now, with SmartProperty, I can give access to my vendors or contractors to update components in real-time when applicable. With the ability to upload photos or files of work orders or service requests, I can keep track of all the moving parts within my project at the touch of a button whenever I need to.

– Shawn Racoma, The Whaler at Kaanapali Beach AOAO
