Stonebridge Ranch is recognized as one of the largest premier homeowners associations in the state of Texas. But did you know it also one of the longest-lasting? In 2018, we celebrated the 30th anniversary of this unique master-planned community. With so many new associations springing up around us in the City of McKinney, we are thankful for the benefits that come with three decades of growth.
TOP 6 WAYS OUR LONGEVITY IMPROVES OUR VALUE
Portfolio of Amenities. Because we have been here for three decades, we’ve had time to build up a truly impressive portfolio of amenities, including two pool centers, multiple sports courts (tennis, basketball, sand volleyball, pickleball, and soccer), over a dozen different playground areas, and more. However, our annual assessments are lower in comparison to many other associations which have fewer amenities to offer.
Social Enrichment. Stonebridge Ranch residents enjoy an event calendar that includes events for residents of all ages. Homeowners can participate in large-scale holiday parties attended by thousands, or low-key small groups such as our Book and Travel Clubs. We continue traditional events which residents have come to anticipate every year, such as our annual Tree Lighting Ceremony in December, while looking for new ways to keep our residents engaged and active.
Financial Stability. Due to sound financial oversight by community leaders over the past 30 years, the association’s Repair & Reserve budget (used to maintain the upkeep of all common areas and amenities) is adequately funded at a level which ensures long-term upkeep of our infrastructure. Annual independent audits verify our strong financial position.
Homeowner Control. New communities grow up under the control of their land developers. But successful associations like ours evntually transition to leadership by an elected Board of Directors made up of highly qualified volunteer homeowners. In Stonebridge Ranch, the strategic decisions affecting our community are made by neighbors living within our borders, bringing our governance truly close to home. We’ve been under homeowner control for a decade now, led by board and committee members who bring years of professional experience to volunteering for the association.
Professional Management. Stonebridge Ranch has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with a single professional management company, RTI/Community Management Associates, Inc. The consistency of this partnership has fostered stability and trust as volunteers and onsite staff work together to find strategies and solutions that will best serve the community as a whole over time.
High Property Values. An active homeowners association like Stonebridge Ranch works to protect property values in a number of ways. Not only does the association manage shared common areas, amenities and activities on behalf of residents, but it also provides Modification Design Guidelines which assist homeowners in maintaining their individual properties to a common standard to enhance overall community appearance. Such attention to detail protects our community’s premier look and feel across 74 villages, making Stonebridge Ranch a sought-after place to live. McKinney is consistently rated one of the fastest-growing and most desirable places to live in the country, and Stonebridge Ranch is McKinney’s premier community.
