Self Storage Market on the Rebound


Despite the difficult economy and market challenges during the past four years, self-storage as an asset class has continued to provide solid performance and stable returns for investors. Once dominated by mom and pops, or small, independent owner/operators, the self-storage industry has evolved into a top-performing asset class during the past decade.

Though once barely on the radars of major investors, self-storage has taken off among institutional-level investors in recent years. Since 2010, real estate investment trusts have demonstrated an almost insatiable appetite for properties larger than 45,000 net rentable square feet in the top 25 metropolitan statistical areas. In 2011, self-storage REITs boasted a handsome return of 35.4 percent — the strongest of any REIT — for the second consecutive year, according to the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts.
