How We Work with You
We help you plan the reserve study engagement to get the best result. We do this by requesting the information we need from you up front before the on-site analysis is performed. This helps to make sure that we identify all the components that should be included in the study and which items should be excluded.
The On-Site Analysis and Component Condition Assessment
The reserve study on-site analysis (what other folks call the “site visit”) and component condition assessment (CCA) is crucial to an accurate evaluation of the association's long-term capital repair and replacement budget. The reserve consultant must possess both industry knowledge and knowledge of maintenance of common area components to know what items should be included in the reserve analysis. For small, simple associations, identifying and quantifying components is relatively easy. For larger, more complex associations, it is not simply a matter of quantifying the components, it is also a matter of knowing how to assemble the resulting data into meaningful reports.
