  • future investor intro

    Hello everyone,

    Just wanted to introduce myself as a new member to the forum.

    About me: I have been investing in single family houses for the past 5 years in Delaware (flips, wholesale, notes, rentals, etc). In the first year of investing, I heard about self storage investing and realized quickly that investing full-time in self storage was my overall goal. At the beginning of last year I decided to give it 100% of my focus and break into the industry. I put all my properties on market and got a part-time job at a facility to learn the management side of the business which ended up being one of the best learning experiences I have had. At the same time I have been building my network and learning as much as I can. I am hopeful that by the end of the year I will have a few facilities on the books.

    Goals: Build a large portfolio using syndication. After a handful of facilities I want to start building an Asset Management team to handle everything. I want to hold long-term for cash flow but if the right offer comes through then I would sell the whole platform and use the funds to invest passively in other deals.

    Looking forward to some great discussions on the forums!

              Good managers are a must, as you've seen working in storage. Good luck and welcome to the forum!

                We just started last month renting on line and it is working good so far. We have Kiosks and there is not a lot of difference But you know nothing is perfect. I guess you could call it the future.

                We use storEDGE and have been asking for the feature since 2014 when we switched from sitelink stand alone. We were told that they would be adding the feature soon, and that has yet to ever happen. We offer RV Storage, and so say if a customer comes in on the 15th but won't need it until the 1st, we...

                My wife and I ran a property down in Dallas. We were right down town in a very bad part of Dallas. Lots of transients and drugs were rampant. The reason I mention all of that is it did not make a difference to us. When we left one my homeless people that I had to bicker with fairly often came up...
