Risk and HOA’s Don’t Mix

Risk and HOAs Dont Mix - CIDologyAmongst all our clients membership over the years there are 2 attitudes related to risk that I see over and over.

One is the group that is always taking risks, their approach is cut corners, bet on the margin, apply a Band-Aid fix or try and beat the percentages.  The other group wants to limit risk and tends to choose a moderate approach again and again. Guess which group is most successful and in whose property I would want to buy? A risk-averse HOA will provide a more secure approach to maintaining property values.  A great example is the fable of the tortoise and the hare – the hare, who ridicules the slow-moving tortoise and is challenged by him to a race. The hare soon leaves the tortoise behind and, confident of winning, decides to take a nap midway through the course. When he awakes, however, he finds that his competitor, crawling slowly but steadily, has arrived before him.  A planned, thoughtful and far-reaching approach to property maintenance and improvement will yield optimum property values.
