Is self-storage boom too much of a good thing for lenders?
June 20, 2018 – American Banker
The storage wars are on in the real estate world, as is the debate about whether banks will emerge victorious or with wounded loan books. Commercial loan demand has been in a prolonged holding pattern, so any loan category with vibrant growth characteristics was bound to attract bankers. Lately that category has been financing self-storage facilities, as many Americans shift from single-family homes to apartments but are still carrying as much stuff as they always have. The economics of the self-storage industry are attractive. After initial construction costs, self-storage facilities require little overhead. Customers rarely move out if rent increases. And a self-storage business can be structured as a real estate investment trust, providing the owner with tax benefits. No wonder bankers have rushed in to make loans for self-storage construction.
