“Loyalty Update Plan”

This popular “flat fee” Loyalty Update Plan is designed to save you time & stabilize your budget.

The Loyalty Update Plan is a 3-year series of renewing one year “flat fee” engagements. The plan includes 3 Capital Plan reports prepared over 3 consecutive years: (1) Full Capital Plan or (1) Capital Plan Update With Site Visit (WSV) in addition to (2) Capital Plan Updates No Site Visit (NSV), in any order.

Why a 3-Year Plan?

The 3-year Flat Fee “Loyalty Update Plan” is a popular choice among our clients for many reasons:

  • Leaders benefit from having us “on their team”, rather than just an on again-off again relationship.
  • Over three years, we really get to know the property and are in a better position to guide the organization toward being fully funded.
  • Organizations with annual updates tend to improve the strength of their Reserve Fund. This means that repairs & replacements can occur in a timely manner, there is less chance of deferred maintenance, and property values are protected.
  • For three years, Stakeholders have the assurance that the Capital Plan will be updated despite employee transitions.
  • We save the leadership time and trouble when they can count on us to initiate the update process automatically each year.
  • Budget is stabilized by locking in a set price for three years.

Our “flat fee” annual price is based on the “Economy” turnaround time.
