    KeelHauler expressed my first thought too...... worth the land value. There's isn't a business there worth paying for, and the improvements are minimal.

    The value here is in the land (water rights, mineral rights, etc). Do you face a major road (frontage, easy access, signage)? Most rural communities, homeowners have large parcels of land (so they usually do not have to pay to store vehicles, trailers, farm equipment, etc). Your best option to fill up some of the units (weather proof and rodent proof them) is to reach out to businesses that need to store documents (for IRS/tax purposes) or hook up with an apartment complex. I spoke with someone that got a free off-site storage unit when they rented at a specific apartment complex. Is there any drilling/construction (pipelines, wind farms, solar farms) happening in the area? You could reach out to the foreman/supervisor and see if they need storage. I had a company rent two large units for a few months while they built a Sonic restaurant. Are there any government (state, county) projects that might need storage? I am currently renting to a state land division. Are cell towers an option? You could generate some revenue that way. I understand your question was how to value such a property, but if you decide to purchase, some of the ideas above might help.

    I have a facility in a town of 1000 people, but it is a suburb of a larger town so it would not be a good example compared to what you have offered. When you say no facilities for 10 miles is 10 miles the closest city?

    I'd touch base with a real estate agent. And wow-no website? No phone? Crazy.

    Really Small Town Facility under 1000 population

    Hello everyone;
    I have been a keen observer of this site for sometime and I find it is a wealth of information obtained from boots on the ground. I would like to ask opinions on facilities in really small rural towns,,,,I mean really small like under 1000 population. The opportunity provided would be that you would are the only facility within a 10 mile radius. I should also mention that this facility is only 50 units, it has asphalt paved driveways and is fenced and gated. Of course such a small facility could not support an on site Manager. I saved the best for last, only about 5 of the units are occupied, the property is extremely poorly managed, no website and non functional phone number. How do you place a value on such a property with a small population of 1000, such low occupancy and no room for growth in the near future ?

    I've been running PTI and Storage Commander for many years now, they've both been bulletproof. The people at Storage Commander actually listen to my suggestions and treat me like a big player, although I'm a sole proprietor of only one facility and 400 units. SC just came out with a browser based...

    Rent a couple of ginormous dehumidifers for at LEAST a week, and dry the heck out of the building. Are there air baffles in the roof? Can you get into the areas where the insulation got wet and replace it? I would call a mold remediation specialist and get their .02....

    Thank you everyone for your replies! I figured it was just one of those things - it's really hard to judge a character without a face-to-face, and I haven't been able to find a third party system to integrate to our online rental application
