  • Lol, and I didn't even mention that it was one of those messages with the broken English on par with the "I am a prince in my homeland and I need to send you money" e-mails....

    What is the scam here...?

    I had someone from a remote area code text me to ask for a unit. says they are in ICU so they can not meet. Wants to pay credit card and have stuff shipped. Smells fishy. I said no. So, anyone know exactly what this scammer is up to?

    replied to Building Size
    30 and 40 wide are the most common widths and for the most part give you an excellent mix of units. If you are more rural, you'll be more likely to want a larger unit mix that the 40' buildings can provide. Urban or areas with higher concentrations of renter occupied housing usually result in greater...

    replied to Top 10 comments tenants say.....
    Not that this is a repetitive comment, but this is the one I got last night from a habitually late tenant that is currently overlocked: "How about I give you a postdated check that you can deposit next week for what's due now, and I can also give you another postdated check for next month's rent....

  • The biggest RVs may need a 50' driveway. For medium boat units 35' to 40' drives are ideal.

    The driveway size is part of why it is hard to make money on these sites unless land is really cheap and you can charge premium rent. But usually those two things don't happen at the same time....

    replied to Buying Self Storage Facility
    If you are buying an existing business the cashflow ought to be pretty obvious. It's hard to go wrong. Here are two things that are easy to overlook though: The property taxes are going to jump when you buy it and trigger a new assessment. Not only will that hit your cashflow, but the increased expenses...

    replied to New from The Mitten!
    Welcome to the group. I've never owned multi-family but I am really happy with how my storage property has been doing. I like that my storage property is close to me house - makes it easier to manage with no employees. I would kind of like to get some multi-family in the area and be in both in my c...

    replied to Bumping of Locks
    If someone is determined to in to the units, they will find a way in. I'm not going to go into great detail on how. I would be more interested in catching the thief if you think you have a repeat visitor. Do you think they brought a vehicle in? Any chance you get get plates if you had a better camera?...

  • Another tactic that I have heard of (from "The Hat Lady" Anne Ballard) is to post upcoming auctions in a prominent location, and invite your new tenants to attend an auction if they are interested.

    It's a non threatening way to let new tenants know that you don't let delinquent...

  • I show every new tenant where their unit is personally, and as we are walking I point out what a red lock means what day it (and the late fee) show up. My personal unit is next to the office, and I use a red lock on it, so there is always one right there to talk about. I reassure them that our computer...
