Across the country, even in record high heat, people today are moving boxes and belongings into a self-storage unit somewhere near you. They are homeowners, renters, empty-nesters, college students, business owners and more. Throughout 2020 and 2021, the industry saw steady demand from consumers. While the market may have softened slightly in 2022, the current vacancy rate across the country hovers around 8 percent.

 

Forbes.com said in a 2020 opinion that self-storage “is a recession-resistant and often overlooked way to invest.” Regardless of the state of the economy, people will always need storage for a variety of reasons. In the last two years we have seen new reasons storage is necessary.

  • Downsizing personal belongings to make a work space at home
  • Downsizing to travel full-time in an RV
  • Temporary closing of a business (during pandemic) to store items for future re-opening
  • Storage of college belongings year-round and temporarily

 

Whatever the reason, people still need storage and that trend will continue. As we expand our business into Georgia, let’s look at a fantastic listing.

 

Kingsland Self-Storage – Kingsland, GA

This peach of an opportunity covers 5.52 acres. Kingsland currently offers 181 climate-controlled units with huge growth potential. Current expansion will feature outdoor storage for RVs, boats and other items. A third parcel within the offer includes land for future expansion and space for Boxwell units. This fantastic opportunity is perfect for the experienced self-storage owner seeking to expand their portfolio. It would also be a great first investment property because it is well-established and currently expanding to make full use of the 5 acres. Georgia boasts over 10 million square feet in self-storage space, but even with that number, there is still a need for more.
