Why Would You Want To Invest In Self-Storage Right Now?
The commercial real estate industry is in one of its worst down cycles in decades. As a result, you can buy self-storage facilities for a fraction of what they sold for just a few years ago. Distressed sales are everywhere, from foreclosures and REO properties to over-extended moms & pops. It is not uncommon for properties that cost $5,000,000 to develop to sell for $1,000,000 in the right circumstances. This is the time that fortunes are made for people who have the ability to purchase, operate and hold onto these properties until the markets rebound.
One interesting fact about self-storage is that many of the "improvements” that developers thought they were making on the business model have proven not to work in the real world, and the old mom & pop facilities from decades ago are on an equal footing - or even better footing - than newly built "fancy” properties. If you can find these older facilities in good locations, and buy them right, your success is nearly assured. And in many cases, the mom & pop owners will carry the financing for you, so you do not need to locate and obtain bank financing.
