Should I buy or build a self-storage facility?

By Ed Clement


● Many self-storages are run like a real estate investment and not a business. By incorporating a “Ritz style” over the top, remarkable customer service and a sales and marketing plan you can make significantly more than many existing self-storage facilities.


● By developing from the ground up you can invest significantly less and make significantly more than buying an existing facility.


● Self-storage is a 39-billion-dollar business and growing over a billion dollars a year.


● Self-storage rental rates and occupancy are at all-time highs.


● With an SBA loan, you only need 10 – 15% cash down


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