How Much Is Your Marketing Plan Costing You?

Here’s the scenario: you’re creating a 50-lot gated community where the monthly dues will be $100 per lot. Here’s the problem: Once you begin selling homes, the HOA will begin collecting dues on all unsold lots.

You can pay monthly dues on all 50 lots until they’re all sold and eat into your profits or you can phase the project into smaller “marketing phases” during which you only pay dues on unsold lots within that marketing phase. Sounds great, right?  But how many phases is the right number of phases to make economic sense?

Should you have 2 phases of 25 lots?  Or 10 phases of 5 lots? Or go to the extreme: 50 phases of 1 lot each and never pay HOA dues!?!

Let me help you – here at California Builder Services, we have the team, the tools, and the experience to calculate this for you.
