Is self-storage recession-resistant?

By Ed Clement

In general, real estate is a fairly stable market to invest in–but as we know, that isn’t always the case, and the risk of another recession is something that remains in the back of many investors’ minds. Luckily, self-storage is a virtually fool-proof route to take. The self-storage industry has held its ground through all the ups and downs of the market: in a good market, the demand for self-storage increases as people are buying more and need more space to put it, while in a bad market, people need facilities to put their excess belongings as they downsize their homes or businesses. And if you’re still looking for a little bit more peace of mind, here’s something to consider, self-storage saw the lowest foreclosure rate of any asset class during the 2008 recession. 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.
