Cost of the reserve study
We are frequently asked how we calculate the cost of the study. Our approach is simple. We know that you want a single reliable fee estimate; no changes based on unknown factors. We want to be able to provide that for you so we ask questions to make sure we have a complete understanding of your requirements. Factors affecting our fee estimate are; type of association, size of association, amenities maintained, and location of the association. This gives us the information we need to determine how much time will be required to complete the study. While we don't charge any separate or additional fee for travel time or costs those are factors that we must consider in determining the total effort to prepare the reserve study and expenses we incur. The final factor affecting our cost estimate is your time requirement for receiving the report. Our normal time for processing a report is three to four weeks. If you require a report immediately we must set aside other work and for that we do charge a premium. We try to gain all of this information before we submit a proposal to you.
Together, this give us our total cost, which we convert to a single fee; there are no extras or add-ons. We guarantee a fixed fee unless we discover that the information provided to us was inaccurate. We will hold that fee for 60 days.
We calculate fee for updates of the reserve study in the same manner, based on our estimate of the time required to complete the analysis and prepare the report.
The services we offer generally exceed what most of our competitors are able to offer. Because of the software we use, our planning of of the component data structure, and inclusion of component measurements or quantities our reports can generally be easily generated by location, making it easy for you to review the report for accuracy.
