The Self-Storage industry performs even when the economy does not.

Investments in stocks and 401K come with constant dips and rises, while self-storage investments remain constant.


Typically, economic conditions have a direct effect on most investments, and some industries are more vulnerable to these changes. Conversely, self-storage investments thrive in just about any economic environment.


People will continue to purchase items that require storage during good times. Once the money is tight, people will downsize their residences and demand storage for their surplus belongings.


On the commercial front, increased business activity means there is an increased demand for storage to move their goods. Companies, which are downsizing, still look for storage spaces for their inventories.
