Is Self-Storage Facing Oversupply?

Frank DeSalvo and David Perlleshi of Franklin Street, a Tampa, Florida-based commercial real estate/leasing and management company, recently released a report published by Inside Self-Storage that seeks to answer some gritty questions facing the self-storage industry: What happens when too many self-storage facilities flood the market? Will single-site owners have to face off with deep-pocketed institutional operators? 

According to their research, self-storage development has climbed steadily over the past five years, leading many developers/investors to believe it to be recession-proof. But, they speculate the many reasons why some areas of the country may be leading to an oversupply. 

Here are some key highlights of the report:

  • Mom-and-pop shops still dominate the industry, but private investors and institutional syndicators are dumping capital into this emerging asset class.
  • As larger owners have entered the space, the industry has become more competitive–for investors and consumers.
  • The Sun Belt is most likely to experience oversupply due to the sector’s explosive growth during the pandemic. 
  • Atlanta, Nashville, Charlotte, N.C., and other high-growth cities are at highest risk of reaching oversaturation.
  • Declining rents are one of the first indications that a market is oversupplied with self-storage, followed closely by high vacancy.
  • While institutional investors are eager to expand their self-storage portfolios, it’s best to be cautious and perhaps adjust the pro forma.
