Valuation & Advisory
The Self Storage Industry Group is an international, full service, real estate appraisal team specializing in the self storage asset class. We combine local experience with international resources and expertise provided by a team of 12 professionals. The team has developed an econometric demand model to forecast the depth of demand for self storage. The demand model has been used in over 100 major metropolitan markets and in all 50 states. Determining the winners from the losers of the asset class is a function of local market conditions in the trade area. Consequently, the demand model is critical in the analysis of a self storage property.
Our expertise in the specialized asset class has resulted in key insights into the self storage market and in the publication of the Self Storage Investor Survey for six years that details trends and conditions of the self storage market and highlights capitalization rates and financing, and includes an optimism index.
We also author the Self Storage Expense Guidebook, which serves as an industry benchmark for operating expenses. We have been published over sixty times in industry publications, and we authored the Appraisal Institute’s “Self Storage Economics and Appraisal” seminar, which has been taught in twelve states.
Our website, www.selfstorageeconomics.com contains over 60 publications that can be viewed and downloaded.
