How to Make Money in Self-Storage: Keys to Unlocking Self-Storage Profits
There are only three channels to make money in the self-storage industry: increase revenue, decrease expenses and create equity. Most facility operators believe they're doing pretty well at growing net operating income (NOI). If "pretty well" is good enough for you, then bravo! However, if you want to take your operation to the next level, it may be time to refresh your memory on some forgotten tactics or learn new strategies for creating greater NOI and facility value. This book examines all three areas of profitability and offers concrete, actionable strategies and programs to boost your self-storage facility's bottom line. It will help small and mid-sized operators succeed in winning the battle against flat-line operating income.
