Publisher's Summary

The essential playbook to earning a lifetime of income through self storage.

Over the past decade in AJ Osborne’s self storage investing career, he’s built a portfolio of over $100 million in self storage investments with no outside capital or management. In this step-by-step playbook, you will discover how to identify investment opportunities, allocate capital, and leverage management expertise to turn a mom and pop real estate asset into a thriving income-producing business. Master the principles of self storage investing by learning from someone who’s done it before.

The business of self storage has evolved over the years. What started as a mom and pop business in the '70s and '80s has become a truly institutional asset class with value-add and management opportunities not found in any other real estate investment.

By viewing self storage as not only a real estate asset but a consumer-oriented retail business, incredible opportunities are available to those who understand and implement the framework laid out in this audiobook.

AJ Osborne is an entrepreneur and investor. He owns and manages a self storage portfolio of over $100M in assets. AJ is a national speaker on investing in, buying, and managing self storage facilities, wealth, financial freedom, and he actively manages his facilities. In addition to buying and turning around many existing facilities, he has developed self storage from the ground up, expanded existing facilities, and converted a failed Super Kmart into a storage facility. He has additional development projects ongoing across the United States.

AJ specializes in buying and turning around underperforming facilities with a value-add strategy. He has created a management company to run his facilities and focuses on growing his portfolio. He is a leader in the industry with a focus on technology and self storage automation. He built one of his largest facilities with full automation technology. He is the owner and host of the self storage industry’s largest self storage podcast, Self Storage Income.

Great overview for a newbie

I liked how AJ goes over his personal story of why he got into this space. I also liked the examples he provided from his own deals so the concepts he covered made sense. I highly recommend this book to a newbie like myself who has very little information on this asset class and wants to get into it.

Don't miss out

I was looking for a book to help me on my self storage facility ownership track and only saw a few options. They all had very minimal reviews and I passed them over in the beginning. After listening to AJ's Self Storage Income podcast I realized this book was incredibly new to the market. I took the few short hours to listen to the book and quickly saw the value in the market. Don't skip the opportunity to read this book because it doesn't have thousands of reviews or ratings. It is a great resource and you won't be disappointed!

some good bits

This is very much aimed at the American Market, UK businesses cannot get loans anywhere near the terms available over there, however there are some great tips across other areas so it's definitely worth a listen

The perfect 'how to' book

Written in a simple, structured way, this book gives you the A-Z on the storage industry. It leaves the fluff out, but doesn't get bogged down in specifics either. It gives you the tools to succeed, but leaves you to do the ground work. A must have if your thinking about getting into the industry.
