Top 7 Reasons to Invest in Self-Storage Right Now

Self-storage is emerging as the top trend in the property market for very specific reasons

  • Lower Capital Barrier to Entry: Self-storage units offer a more accessible investment option than residential properties due to their significantly lower costs.
  • Low Maintenance Costs: Self-storage units require less maintenance and management compared to traditional rental properties, reducing ongoing expenses for investors.
  • Liquidity: The entry price for self-storage units is lower, leading to better liquidity and a larger pool of potential buyers.
  • Tenant Vacancies: Multiple self-storage units can help mitigate financial risks associated with tenant vacancies, unlike large residential properties.
  • No Disruptive Tenants: Investors can outsource the management of self-storage units, making it a passive investment without the complexities of dealing with difficult tenants.
  • High Demand: The self-storage industry is experiencing high demand, with one in ten US households renting a self-storage unit.
  • Recession-Proof: Historical data suggests that the self-storage industry is resilient during economic downturns, making it a potentially recession-proof investment.

A few decades ago, the concept of self-storage was relatively unknown. Today it is a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide. The self-storage industry had seen significant growth over the years. It’s highly fragmented with a mix of major players and smaller entities operating across these regions, therefore figures are not precise.

According to the IMARC Group, the global market for self-storage is estimated at $57.4 billion and projected to reach $87.8 billion by 2032, with an expected CAGR of approximately 4.7% from 2024-2032.

What makes Stradix’s offshore buy-to-let self-storage so unique?

South Africans now have an opportunity to invest in international real estate at a fraction of the cost associated with traditional properties. Reselling of self-storage facilities are common practise as indicated in the vast market size. However, Stradix’s approach, enabling the purchase of individual self-storage units, opens the door for South Africans to invest offshore in real estate at a real affordable price.
