Self-Storage Operating Performance Data Like Nobody Else Can Do It
Last year Charles Ray Wilson (left), the founder and principal of Self Storage Data Services Inc., partnered with the Self Storage Industry Group of Cushman & Wakefield to bring his exclusive industry research to the hands of self-storage operators and investors and other professionals who have need of comprehensive industry trend reporting. A recognized expert in the field of self-storage performance data, Wilson contributes his unique expertise and resources to C&W, allowing this valuation firm to integrate its sophisticated reporting abilities with the most robust database in the storage business.
Here Ray and Chris Sonne (right), senior managing director of C&W's Self Storage Industry Group, talk to attendees about the state of the industry, providing an overview of current market conditions and trends for the U.S. self-storage market. They shared info about rental activity, including move-ins, move-outs, concessions and more. They also dispelled myths about self-storage performance based on operating statistics collected from more than 7,000 facilities.
Later in the show, Ray and Chris did a presentation regarding their recent partnership with Inside Self-Storage, which makes their valuable research reports available for sale through the new ISS Store.
