This year, Argus is honored to celebrate our 25th year in business as the nation’s premier self-storage brokerage.  We have seen a lot of changes in the self-storage industry over these 25 years, most notably the tremendous expansion with more than 20,000 self-storage properties built, accounting for nearly half of the existing properties in the market today. We have witnessed the once sleepy “mini storage” business growing in to an institutional and tech savvy industry with large multi-story projects being built on the corner of main and main in every major MSA around the country.   Below I have reflected on a few topics that have had the most impact on the storage industry since Argus began in 1994.
