  • 100x740 ft....what would you do

    We are buying a strip of land that borders our 8 acres. We know there's a 10' set back of the property lines. We are thinking 3 sided RV/boat storage down one side and some small 10x10 and 5x10 storage units. Willing to hear other options or ideas.

    Hard to answer without knowing what you already have and what you have more demand for. Obviously you feel your market has a need for boat/RV units. I wonder if you could lay them diagonal down the center with an outer driving loop?

    I am a fan of fully enclosed boat RV units if you can make it work - less hassle with each vehicle secured. However if your market has a need for more traditional units or climate controlled, those classes of storage usually have a better return than boat/RV.

Each time a Sparefoot reservation rents for 1 month and takes off, you're losing money. I would politely decline those reservations....

      Following up on this, just wondering if anyone is having success with Sparefoot/Storable Marketplace for renting up a new facility. It makes sense to try and be visible everywhere you possibly can be, especially for a newer facility or expansion, but I do see some of the downfalls:
