Why self storage?

Recession-Resistant

Recession-Resistant

It is proven self storage does well in a booming economy, but just as importantly the industry is highly recession-resistant. The need for storage during recessions historically remains strong as individuals downsize homes, rent more often, among numerous other factors leading to increased demand for storage. For example, storage growth remained relatively flat during the Great Recession - compared to a declination in the vast majority of other asset classes - and has risen dramatically in the wake of Covid-19.

The self storage market is expected to grow by over $30 billion USD from 2019 to 2025 according to multiple sources. This is driven by increasing demand, low operating costs, and rental rate increases. Historical national occupancy has increased every year for the past 11 years, demonstrating a strong demand for storage during market fluctuations.

Low Relative Risk

Steady demand for self storage in both recessionary and growth periods provide investors low risk compared to other real estate asset classes and other alternative investments. Dependable revenue streams and low operating costs translate to consistent and reliable investor returns.

Ripe for Consolidation

Ripe for Consolidation

Over 70% of self storage facilities are still mom-and-pop owned, giving ample opportunity for institutional investors to drive value when acquiring new facilities. Demand for self storage has continually increased in both urban and rural areas. Over 10.6% of households rent a storage unit, which is expected to increase over the next decade.
