If you have questions, we have the answers.

When it comes to selling a self storage property, we have experience and knowledge that is unmatched in the industry. We focus only on self storage and will get you from listing your property to the closing table.


Pre-Sale Value Enhancement

In preparing your property for sale, we are able to make recommendations that can significantly increase the value of your self storage facility and your cash flow. Every $1,000 of additional income causes a value enhancement of $11,764 at sale. We consult with our clients well before they put their facility on the market to assist them in obtaining the best possible price. Investors like this approach, too, as the income stream is there, without any guessing games of whether it will work or not.

Market Research & Knowledge

Market knowledge is the key to getting the highest price in the shortest time possible. This market knowledge is gained by our constant research of the marketplace. We are in contact with all owners of self storage facilities at least twice per year. We track all properties that are actively being marketed, we verify and catalog all sales, we call municipal officials to find any proposed new construction, we monitor the internet for any sale, lease or construction news and we conduct rent surveys regularly as well as market summary analyses to determine demand and supply levels. Our market knowledge is crucial to advertising a property, securing a buyer, and bringing the transaction to a timely close. We avoid wasting valuable marketing time with tire kickers and unqualified buyers who are not capable of purchasing the property.
