Inside Self-Storage World Expo Seminars Explore Self-Storage Lending, New SBA Loans


The rapidly changing financial landscape has left many self-storage owners and investors confused about the availability and terms of today’s loans. Two seminars at the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas, March 14-16, will offer attendees the vital information they need about today’s lending environment.

A panel of self-storage real estate and lending experts, led by John Gilliland of Investment Real Estate LLC, will discuss what’s happening in the market, capitalization rates, bank appraisals, loan amounts and terms, and what the industry can expect in the near and long-term future. In addition, Georgia Ragsdale, CEO of Best American Financial Services LLC, will take a closer look at the new loans from the Small Business Administration. Ragsdale will outline the rates and terms, how to qualify, and the submission process.

The ISS Expo, held at the Paris Hotel & Casino, will include four comprehensive education tracks, several peer-to-peer networking events, a Self-Storage Q&A, two days of exhibits and more.
