Self Storage National Outlook – Spring 2021

Yardi Matrix Self Storage Webinar Spring 2021

Despite uncertain economic conditions, the self storage industry continues to weather the storm and perform well. Strong occupancy driven by sustained demand, combined with positive street rate performance and stable development activity, has demonstrated the resilient nature of the sector. As self storage continues to outperform many other commercial asset classes, there has been increased investor interest and several notable acquisitions. Join our webinar on March 24 as we cover important topics impacting the self storage market.

Topics will include:
• The current macroeconomic landscape
• Demand drivers and their impact on the self storage market
• A deep dive into transactions amid a surge in investor interest
• Self storage fundamentals, including street rate performance, the development pipeline and new supply forecast
