Younger generations are starting to invest more, which bodes well for their futures, but there is an ascending sector that is luring budding investors even more than in year’s past, and that is self-storage.
Behind the movement, self-storage investor and Instagram influencer AJ Osborne, CEO of Cedar Creek Capital. AJ has a top-performing YouTube channel, in conjunction with the No. 1 self-storage podcast and is the bestselling author of Growing Wealth in Storage. He and his team have noticed that many younger investors are being introduced to self-storage assets in a way that older generations have never experienced.
Cedar Creek Capital is a vertically-integrated real estate private equity firm that specializes in the acquisition, management and development of self-storage facilities and investments. Its portfolio far expands over $300 million in assets and continues to draw young investor interest with exciting investment opportunities.
“We’ve seen an explosion of investments by young people getting into the storage game. They want to be in this asset class and harvest all of the money that can be made,” Osborne said. “Many people started seeing that this was a superior real estate asset investment opportunity and it held its equity so well that the cash flow margins were incredibly high. People have turned to it, specifically young people looking to get involved.”
Now is the Time to Consider Self-Storage Investing
The future of investing lies in the self-storage sector that continues to garner popularity and investors. More young people are actively looking to find investments in the space as the average age of investors continues to drop, which means now is the time!
Self-storage investments are now a proven method to help investors generate passive income, as well as present an opportunity for long-term income via the creation of wealth. The appeal is in the hands-off approach and low-risk investments. Osborne and Cedar Creek Capital aim to make the process of investing in the space seamless and fruitful for all involved.
“Self-storage is one of the most misunderstood assets in the world, primarily because it’s the newest commercial real estate asset,” said Osborne. “People are really interested in this asset class, particularly young people. It can be truly hands-off and has high cash flow.”
Osborne and Co. have developed a successful team to help investors achieve top-tier financial success. Per its low-level risk stabilized assets, as well as its mid-level risk growth, the firm employs its unique and patented ‘BIRD’ model, which allows investors to maximize their potential returns with minimal downside risk. Cedar Creek Capital goes beyond simply owning the assets by keeping as much of the business as possible in-house. It owns the property management company that runs its facilities, the software they all use, and the media distribution networks as well. This keeps costs low, revenue high, and needed adjustments or projects completed in a timely manner.
The goal is to keep investors in for the long haul.
“We don’t roll out investors when we are buying an asset, so they are investors for life,” stated Osborne. “This helps us ensure long-term equity and income for investors while returning their principal and profits in just 3-6 years.”
All above efforts help investors find comfort in investing with Cedar Creek Capital, whose vertical integration creates synergy across all of its investments.
