Over the last several months the self-storage investment landscape has changed dramatically, largely due to the COVID disruption. We are clearly in an unprecedented time for the self-storage industry where the unconventional and unexpected have become a part of everyday business.  As we start to collect data from the industry’s performance over the last 3-4 months, it is clear we are doing better than most commercial real estate and we should all be very thankful that we are in the self-storage business. However, the valuation, transaction velocity, and overall fluidity of the self-storage investment business has been impacted.  With that in mind, I have tried to touch on a few topics that have changed during the COVID disruption so that you can better understand how self-storage transactions are being structured today and the associated strategies that are being employed.
