Self Storage Acquisition


We are buyers.

We are interested in existing self storage sites of 30,000 NRSF or more in The United States. Any markets. Any vintage. All drive-up storage units, or all interior storage units. It's all good. 

We have a great reputation for a straightforward process, and for keeping good communication going with the seller.

How do you want the transaction to look?

We can buy your site with all cash. We can do a lease-to-buy. We can set up a phased buy-out. We can purchase some or all of the shares of the LLC that holds the property and the business. We can  buy out existing partners and leave your shares intact.  We can take over management of the property with the first right of refusal on a purchase. If you'd like to owner-finance, we can do that too. Or maybe you have another idea? 

Let's start a conversation and see what works best. 

We like joint ventures and co-investments.

Maybe you are buying a site, developing a site, or doing a conversion and want an equity partner with a wide skill set?  Let's talk about that. 

Stabilized, In Lease-Up, Distressed, or at C of O.

Who doesn't like buying a stabilized asset? We sure like that. But sometimes a distressed asset makes sense. Often times a newer site that is still in lease-up is very attractive. Sometimes the numbers work on a Certificate of Occupancy deal on a new development or a conversion. There is almost always a range where the  buyer and the seller can make the numbers work. 

Contact us and let's start a conversation.
