Buying Self-Storage

The self-storage real estate market has drastically changed over the past decade. Owners and investors looking to acquire a self-storage facility need to understand the buying process including due diligence, capitalization (cap) rates, self-storage appraisals and methods for determining property value. Self-storage purchasers should keep up-to-date on new real estate acquisitions, project expansions and financial information. They may also find it helpful to work with a real estate broker who specializes in the field of buying and selling self-storage properties.
