Self-Storage Property Management

While many people are starting to realize that real estate is becoming a good way to invest in their future, most don’t know that there is more than one way to do successfully do so. Although apartment buildings are a popular source of income, there are other means to make money in real estate: By investing in commercial property and self-storage businesses.

When deciding to invest in a self-storage business, it can take time to find the right place to buy. Here are some tips to make sure that you have the right facility:


Location. Though daily maintenance isn’t necessary at a self-storage facility, the facility should be pretty close to your home when emergencies happen. Long commutes are not only inconvenient but the travel time takes away from the things that you want to do like have family time or relax with a hobby.


Convenience to Others. Accessibility and convenience is important to many customers and potential renters. If the facility is in the middle of nowhere, you may struggle to fill them. Instead, you might want to invest in properties near public transportation spots, apartment buildings located near an area of high population.


Price. Since most people don’t invest in self-storage businesses, you won’t have quite the competition, which means you may be able to find a place at a decent price. However, make sure the monthly mortgage payment is affordable even if not all of your units are full.


Though it can take time to find the right facility, it’s important to have the accurate information and ask the tough questions. Contact our team of experts at Right Move Storage and find out how we can help you choose the right facility to invest in!
