Baranof Holdings is creating a national diversified portfolio of institutional quality self-storage properties through both ground up development and existing asset acquisitions

Self Storage
Strong Property Fundamentals
  • Generate consistent cash-flow: No leasing improvements and minimal capital expenditures required in self-storage
  • Outsized NOI growth: Publicly traded self-storage REITs have experienced average annual same-store NOI growth rates over 5% throughout the last 10 years
  • Recession resilient: Best performing REIT sector throughout 2007-2010 recession
Favorable Supply/Demand Characteristics
  • Strong demand for "A" quality product: Public self-storage REITs remain focused on new product; private equity and other large real estate investors have all publicly stated increasing exposure
  • Lack of available supply: A disproportionate share of in-fill properties in top MSAs are owned by public self-storage REITs, who rarely sell core product
Challenges to Investment
  • Small average deal size
  • Fragmented operators and developers
  • Difficult to scale in a meaningful and diversified way across municipalities
  • Efficiencies in capital allocation, as third-party costs dilute returns due to small deal size

Baranof Holdings is positioning itself as a long-term investor in institutional quality self-storage assets across major markets nationally. Baranof aggregates assets through a variety of approaches in order to take advantage of market cycles while maintaining a disciplined investment filter
