Our mission is to find, fund, and finish great real estate deals while abiding by the #1 rule, “don’t lose money.” We target investments that cash flow immediately upon purchase and also have great opportunity to increase top-line revenue. Our deals are tax efficient and sensibly financed.
We look for facilities that are underperforming. This is usually tied to rental prices, poor use of extra land or poor operations.
The #1 rule we abide by is “don’t lose money”. This means we conservatively underwrite our deals to protect our investors money.
Every property is unique but the main areas we add value are: improved pricing, expansion, add-on services, marketing and customer service
We are a veteran-owned company that focuses on value-add self-storage opportunities throughout the sunbelt. We self-manage our facilities and are comfortable using technology to our advantage. We streamline the customer experience by permitting contactless move-in at our facilities. This permits customer self-service and reduces the amount of labor required to operate a facility.
