Why Self Storage Property Investments?

Self Storage Investments

With prices at an all time high, and and significant investment interest from Wall Street Investors, Self Storage Investments are Booming and considered one of the biggest ticket properties in commercial real estate today.

It is easy to see why there is such high demand for self storage property investments, self storage facilities have high margins, consistent cash flow, and the ability to perform well in economic downturns.

Self Storage property investments are now considered to be “fairly recession proof”, with strong real estate income fundamentals. For example in 2012, the four largest publicly traded self storage REITs brought in an average return of 19.11% with rental revenues up 6.6% compared to 2011. We also like the fact that Self storage contracts are typically month to month, which allows landlords that unique ability to increase tenants’ rents fairly easily. Unlike other real estate assets, self storage operators do not need to pay leasing commissions and costly tenant improvements allowances.

We Buy Properties Where There is Limited Supply

We look to buy self storage properties in Cities that have imposed laws or the similar to prohibit new development of self storage facilities.  We consider storage units to be a commodity,  and do not want to have a storage facility located in a City where large amounts of new competing storage units can developed.  New storage facilities offer significant discounted pricing that can significantly hurt the ability to increase rents for exiting self storage operators.

Many Cities now limit the growth of  self storage facilities due to the fact that they usually are large in stature – over 50,000 square, and employ a minimal number of employees for a large facility.  At the end of the day, Cities want employers who are going to bring in large amounts of jobs, and self storage operators simply do not do that, usually employing no more than 5 people.

Investment Parameters

SCV will buy highly occupied (over 85%) self storage investment properties on a CAP RATE basis between 6% to 8.5% depending on the quality of the facility and its location.   Additionally, we will purchase under achieving properties that have occupancy less than 80%.  SCV will typically invest 25% to 35% of the purchase price with investor equity and fund the remainder of the purchase price with a long term loan.
