Do I need to build out my entire self-storage facility in one phase?

By Ed Clement

Sketch by Marc Goodin, CEO of Storage Authority

One of the many models Storage Authority deploys is designing 60,000 -100,000 sq ft of self-storage and developing in phases.

Phasing self-storage construction minimizes the initial investment and allows for unit-mix alterations.

Going to a bank with a loan request for a smaller amount in the first phase can sometimes be better than asking for the whole project upfront.

Most banks will approve a loan with a statement that a second phase will be constructed when the occupancy reaches 65-70 percent.

Phasing is a familiar process with lenders in the self-storage industry. It offers flexibility to market changes, minimizes capital exposure, and reduces risk.

The Storage Authority team is excited to guide you on your journey to becoming self-storage owners.

Is it time for you to learn more? I would be happy to have a 15-minute call and review the highlights of how Storage Authority can help make your self-storage goal a reality. Ed 727-946-0745
