The moment you decide to invest, the next question becomes “Where do I put my money?” There are many different asset classes to choose from, even in the real estate sector. One of which is self-storage which is my favorite but has not been discussed in much detail. There have been significant changes in the industry that have raised questions, primarily concerning rising interest rates. Therefore, today we are going to talk about rising interest rates and new development and whether or not it will kill the self-storage market.
Today our guest is Ryan Smith who is the Managing Principal of Elevation Capital Group. Ryan graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Science from the University of Tampa. He has more than fifteen years of extensive business experience in market evaluation, property analysis, management systems, due diligence, finance, and more! He participates in the ownership and/or management of over 20,000 MHP lots.
Today we are going to discuss…
- The key aspects of the self-storage asset class that originally intrigued our guest
- What metrics our guest is currently looking at when it comes to his buying criteria
- The purchasing power and preferences of millennials’
- Some of the misconceptions about the relationship between interest rates and real estate valuations
- NOI growth
Being informed about different asset classes is key to being comfortable and confident when you invest. There is not a one size fits all when it comes to investing, so learning about your preferences is important. Since changes are always occurring, staying up to date on current trends can also help you succeed.
