Self Storage

DSD Investor Group, Inc. purchases stabilized and value-add Self Storage Facilities of 200+ units in size and re-positions them by 1) adding capital improvements and 2) reducing expenses by creating operational efficiencies through the implementation of quality property management companies. DSD then sells the community as a stabilized asset within three to five years.

Additionally, we prefer stabilized properties (min 85% occupancy) requiring a micro-re-positioning where the property’s grade or class is below that of the other competitive properties in its market. We will consider properties with occupancies less than 85% on a case by case basis.
