Reserve Studies: delivering unbiased guidance that supports your community’s long-term physical and financial health

What is a Reserve Study?

A reserve study is a long-range capital planning tool that helps boards anticipate and prepare for the repair and replacement of their community’s common assets. A reserve study includes both an in-depth analysis of the property’s physical condition and a thorough examination of current reserve funds. The resulting reserve study report presents a prioritized schedule of capital projects and a reserve funding plan to offset future costs associated with repairing and replacing the common assets over the next 30-years.

Components of a Reserve Study

Executive Summary including key findings, prioritization of near-term capital projects, and projected reserve fund cash flow over the next 30-years.

Our lead engineer, Taylor, helped us feel secure and comfortable with the whole reserve study process. He was exceptionally patient in listening to our concerns and he made sure he understood key areas to be examined. Taylor provided information to guide us in using the study for our upcoming budget year. He was also available to answer questions after the study was completed to ensure we understood it all.

Reserve Advisors never fails with the preparation for and delivery of an excellent reserve study. By far the report is detailed yet easy to read and understand. Stephen was great during a recent meeting with the Board, explaining the report in detail and answering all of their questions. Thanks for being a valuable resource to me as a Community Manager.
