Small actions today can make a BIG difference in valuations tomorrow. Your focus must shift from how the self-storage asset class has performed in the last couple of years to how YOUR facility will perform moving forward. As cap rates increase, owners must be protective of their net operating income (NOI) and hyper-focused on all the controllable items. Here’s a strategy check-up preview comparing today with last year:
Feb. 2023 Feb. 2022 +/-
$$ Actual Rent Roll _____________ _____________ ________
# of Occupied Units _____________ _____________ ________
# of Vacant Units _____________ _____________ ________
$$ Delinquent Accounts (31+days) _____________ _____________ ________
Debt Service Monthly Payment _____________ _____________ ________
These are just a few of the line items to keep your eye on in 2023 to ensure that you are positioned for success. Valuations are vital every day, not just when you are ready to sell. Owners negotiating financing terms in the next 24 months could face new challenges and should focus on:
Total loan balance: ___________________
Today’s valuation: ____________________
% of loan to value: ____________________
