    Default How are rentals in January?

    I realize January is one of the slowest rental months for self-storage but curious if you are ahead of last January rentals?

    We have exceeded the rentals for the last two Januarys, and haven't finished the month. Looking to beat the last two combined, with a little luck.

    There seems to be a more positive feeling here this winter than last, so maybe, maybe, things are looking better for 2010.

    Default things are picking up...

    We have exceeded last year but are less than '08 so far...but only by 3 rentals....I have had a good bit of traffic the last couple of weeks. My fingers, eyes & toes are crossed for a better 2010!

    Default We are up - WOO HOO!

    As of January 23rd

    2008 21 rentals 17 move outs

    2009 20 rentals 20 move outs

    2010 30 rentals 17 move outs (11 of these were auctioned )

    So I'd say we're doing great.

    And even though I'm having to do DEEP move-in discounts to keep up with the competition (35 facilities within 10 miles) my deposits are higher, too .

    Here's hoping that we (all of us here on SST, not just me) will continue this trend all year and beyond.

    so far this month 5 IN, 5 OUT --- sounds sad, but I'll take it.

    Have a feeling we will end down as we have a few more scheduled to move out, but it wont be anything like the last three months - you'd of thought the place was on fire

    9 in 13 out with a few vacates left to go. I'm with Wayne, though, these are better numbers than we've had since August 09.

    I'm hoping for a turnaround.
