sierra canyon Homeowner’s Association Success


n independent study conducted by IBOPE Zogby International revealed that homeowners are satisfied with their homeowner’s associations. This is the fourth time in seven years that residents have expressed their heavy support of their community associations. More than 62 million Americans live in an estimated 315,000 association-governed communities, and the research confirms that most committee members, board members and professional managers are doing a good job for the various associations they serve. The survey results are encouraging, considering many people these days look upon institutions negatively. That doesn’t appear to be the case for those living in neighborhoods with community associations. Of those surveyed, 24 percent cite neighborhood attractiveness and maintained property values as positive reasons for residing in these areas. Here in Somersett and Sierra Canyon, we employ a management company that inspects the community for violations of the governing documents. The enforcement of these documents has a direct result on










your neighborhood’s attractiveness, which assists in maintaining your property’s value. An active community is an important ingredient to a successful homeowner’s association. Community involvement in activities offered by the association, as well as participation on committees and boards, results in a strong, successful association. I encourage you to support our association by serving your community, attending board meetings or simply attending social events so we can continue to show positive homeowner’s association survey results for many years to come! For more information on the survey results mentioned above, visit
