For Sale!

For Sale!

This week Congress is moving forward with a billion-dollar bailout bill for U.S. financial institutions.Whether the bill will keep the economy from sinking deeper into a recession—or even a depression as some fear—remains to be seen.

Next week, the annual ISS issue on Finance will hit your mailbox. And although I admit the content isn't as positive as it has been in previous years, the self-storage industry, overall, has fared much better than many other industries in today's struggling economy. In fact, my e-mail has been bombarded by news of facility sales. Self-storage remains a good investment.

In light of this, it will be interesting to see how many turn out for the Buyer's and Seller's meeting this Thursday at the ISS Expo in Nashville. The meeting brings together sellers and buyers from all over the country.

One other seminar you should add to your to-do list if you're headed to Nashville this week is "How to Make Money in Self-Storage." Hosted by industry veteran RK Kliebenstein, owner of Coast-To-Coast Storage, the seminar covers everything from revenue management to the best ways to streamline your business. It's a great learning opportunity in light of today's economy.

If you're unable to make the trek to Nashville this week, don't worry. Our annual Vegas Expo is just around the corner, Jan. 26-29.

Hope to see you there!
