Responsibilities of Realtors
Note to Realtors: If you can think of any content that can be added to this page to help smooth the way for folks who are moving or contemplating moving into the Rosedale Community, please send your ideas to communications@RosedaleMHOA.com.
Register with RPM to Get an Entry Barcode and Gate Access Resources
Direct new home buyers to the Resource Property Management office (RPM) to "register" as a new owner and get access, as a homeowner, to Rosedale. The realtor should assist the buyer to call the RPM office, make an appointment with them, and arrive with their warranty deed, identification and vehicle registrations.
RPM will enter them as residents into the dwellingLIVE system with vehicle information. RPM will inform them to go to the main gate with identification and make an appointment to get barcodes installed.
RPM offices are currently closed because of COVID. For more information on the precess, refer pages under to the Gate Access and Safety menu tab. In their absence, contact the Master HOA Access Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Impress the New Homeowner with the Need to Learn How to Use dwellingLIVE
dwellingLIVE is the Internet communications system Rosedale uses to enable residents to notify the gate of visitors and vendors. It can be accessed in three different ways -- iPhone, Android Smartphone or using an online browser with your computer or tablet. Using dwellingLIVE, you can add guests or vendors (visitors), add a party list, restrict visitors, select the start and end dates of the visit, and view your visitor history. New buyers can find the instructions for using dwellingLIVE in the items listed under the Gate Access and Safety menu tab on the Master HOA Website (https://www.rosedalemasterhoa.com/dwellinglive).
Inform New Residents of Rosedale's Welcoming Process
The Welcoming Committee needs your help in identifying new homeowners in a timely manner. Please notify the us by sending the name, address, phone number, email address and the date they will be moving in to communications@RosedaleMHOA.com.
Once we are notified of the sale, the new homeowner should expect to receive a visit from their HOA's Welcome Representative within a week or so. This rep will provide them with a print Welcome Package of materials to help them get settled in the community. Contact information for key players in the community will be made available. The Welcome Rep can continue to be a resource to answer questions. If the new residents do not get a visit from the Welcome Rep, they can use the Contact Us menu tab to let us know.
Provide New Residents with Utility and Other Useful Contact Information
Contact information can be found on Helpful Information/Telephone #s Page (click here).
The Real Estate Agent is responsible for provide new buyers with Dues billing information
Invoices for Rosedale Master Homeowners association’s annual dues are mailed in December. All dues for the Master Association are due on January 1st and considered late if not received by January 31st. If the yearly dues remain unpaid after January 31, a notice is sent to and late fees and interest are applied to the account per the governing documents. Late notices are mailed to all homeowners to the address on record in One Source. There will be a late fee for payments received after January 31st.
If you are a new owner who has taken title to a Rosedale property, you should expect that you will be receiving a Dues Bill. It is possible that the bill might be sent to the old owner or a wrong address and you do not receive a bill. Since you are the owner of the property and should have been informed of your obligation to pay HOA dues, whether you receive a bill or not, you are still responsible for payment on time. Contact RPM’s Accounts Receivable Department at (844) 280-4688 if you do not receive a bill in December or with account questions.
You may look at and pay your homeowner account by logging into One Source, which is located on the Resource Property Website. https://resourcepropertymgmt.com/ under the Resident Services tab.
If you purchased during the middle of the year, your real estate agent would have gotten an Estopple document from RPM to confirm that all bills were paid and no dues was owing. In that case, the last payment for HOA dues made by the seller would have been apportioned to compensate the seller for your portioning at closing. As with a new buyer, when the new dues bill becomes due for the next year, you are responsible for payment whether you received a bill or not; that is, the same obligations defined above apply.
Help us avoid spam filters to improve email delivery from Rosedale
When a resident does not receive an email from us, it is usually because our email got trapped by a spam filter. Internet Service Provider (ISP) such as Gmail, AOL, Yahoo, etc. use spam filters that take many things into account when screening emails before they are delivered to residents. There are things the homeowner can do to help Rosedale emails make it thought the spam filters. Please let the new homeowner know the following:
1. Add us to your contact list to let the spam filters know that you know us. Please create a contact in your contacts file as follows:
Name: Ed Mazer
Company: Communications Committee
Email address: Communications@RosedaleMHOA.com
2. Click on any link in an email from Rosedale. The ISP spam filters will interpret your clicking on a link to mean that you are interested in the content of this email, and that will improve deliverability.
Working with Potential Buyers
Introduce Potential Buyers to the Master HOA Website
Introduce the new buyer to the Rosedale Master HOA Website (https://www.rosedalemasterhoa.com) and help them to bookmark it on their computer for future reference. Encourage them to take the time to read all of the items under the Overview menu tab to familiarize them with the Master HOA, the covenants and the resources in the community. Let them know that they can use the Contact Us menu tab (https://www.rosedalemasterhoa.com/contact-us) to help them with any questions they have.
Inform Buyers of the Process for Making Changes to Your Property
Rosedale is a “deed restricted community,” a development where the homeowners association (HOA) has restrictions in place that prohibit certain actions. Make sure that new buyers are familiar with the process for getting approval for any property changes outlined in the items under the Property Change Request menu tab on the Master HOA Website. These rules are established and enforced by Rosedale’s Master HOA to maintain our neighborhood’s appearance and to support property values. One important element in the process of maintaining our community is the architectural review process, through which any changes to the outside appearance of homeowners’ property must be reviewed for consistency with our established standards.
Familiarize Yourself with the Governing Document to Better Inform Potential Buyers
Rosedale is a deed restricted community managed by the Rosedale’s Master Homeowners Association (RMHA), a legal entity cooperatively owned by the residents of Rosedale. It manages the operation, maintenance, preservation, management and control of the house lots and common areas in Rosedale in accordance with its Master Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. Review the governing document on the Governing Documents Page under the Governance menu tab to familiarize yourself the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions in Rosedale so that you can better inform potential home buyers.
Setting up Cable and Internet Services
It is the Real Estate Agent’s responsibility to share the following information with the new buyer.
All Rosedale homeowners are entitled to receive Bulk Cable Services contracted and paid for by the Master HOA. Rosedale is in the process of cutting over from Spectrum cable and Internet service to Hotwire. In either case, the bulk contract with the Master HOA provides for a broad range of TV channels, digital set-top boxes for receiving the TV signals, high-speed internet, and one internet router/modem. The Hotwire contract includes faster Internet and more features than Spectrum. The Spectrum contract ends on September 30th and Hotwire has committed to install and provide service to every house by or before that date.
Presumably, when you take position of your new house, it will have cable service. As we get closer to the cutoff date, it is more likely that your new house will already have Hotwire installed. If not, you can expect that it will happen very soon.
If your house still has Spectrum cable service
Responsibility of your Real Estate Agent
Your real estate agent should work with the seller to cancel the Spectrum service and return the equipment to their office. The agent should also work with the new buyer to contact Spectrum to open an account, pick up the new equipment needed (modem, router, cable boxes and cables), and install them at the house.
The Spectrum bulk contract provides each homeowner with approximately 125 TV channels, two digital set-top boxes for receiving the TV signals, 100 Mbps of high-speed internet, and one internet router/modem. All these services are provided and paid for through a portion of your annual RMHOA assessment.
Additional services, over and above those services provided under the bulk contract, are available from Spectrum on an individual retail basis and will be billed directly to the homeowner/renter. As a new homeowner, you should carefully check your Spectrum bills to ensure that you are not being billed by Spectrum for services that are provided under the bulk agreement.
If you house is currently on Spectrum, you will need to make arrangements with Hotwire for installation when the service is cut over. As part of their In-Home Pre-Installation Consultation, Hotwire will send a specialist to your home or in some cases hold a virtual session to discuss your specific needs as they relate to equipment and wiring locations as well as any optional services that may be of interest to you. You can contact Hotwire to make an appointment at Rosedale@hotwirecommunication.com or 239-217-3262
For Homes that already have Hotwire service
The bulk contract with Hotwire provides each homeowner with approximately 150 HD TV Channels, three wireless set-top boxes for receiving the TV signals wit with whole-house DVR, 500 Mbps of high-speed internet, and one internet router/modem. All these services are provided and paid for through a portion of your annual RMHOA assessment.
Additional services, over and above those services provided under the bulk contract, are available from Hotwire on an individual retail basis and will be billed directly to the homeowner/renter.
You can contact Hotwire directly to better understand just what services are included in the Bulk agreement and to schedule your service installation/activation. They can be reached at: (800) 355-5668 or at via Chat at: www.gethotwired.com. They will tell you what you need to do to open your own Hotwire account.
As a new homeowner, you should carefully check your Hotwire bills to ensure that you are not being billed by Hotwire for services that are provided under the bulk agreement.
