What is HOA Software?

Homeowner Association (HOA) Software is one of several digital tools used to eliminate manual administrative duties such as communication with homeowners, managing and facilitating payments, updating contact information, and voting for board members.

Traditional HOAs may prefer to send emails using their own email client, or to keep their homeowners in the loop of upcoming events by handing out fliers or posting announcements in common areas. Some HOAs might even use paper ballots to gather votes on their next big election. However, the downsides of relying on these traditional methods is that it takes up a lot of time and money – especially on the administrator’s part. With properly implemented HOA software, you can cut down on costs associated with nearly every aspect of running a modern homeowner association.

While you might prefer an all-in-one solution, there are many options out there that allow you to pick and choose which of your processes you’d like to digitize or automate. Take a look at the list below to discover the best rated tools for your HOAs goals.
