    Investors 101 - How to Find Investors and Fund Deals

    Investors 101 - How to Find Investors and Fund Deals

    Welcome back everybody to the Self Storage Income Podcast! I’m your host AJ Osborne!

    One of the most popular subjects I get asked about is this topic exactly - how to find investors, how to structure deals with investors, the entire world surrounding all things INVESTORS. And these are great questions to be asking.

    The truth is, no matter if you’re just getting started or you’re a seasoned investor yourself, you will NEVER have enough money. You never reach some kind of finish line where you have all the money in the world to fund all your own deals. It just does not exist. Not only that, it doesn’t make a lot of sense.

    Think about it - look at the largest companies in the world. Are they using all their own money to fund their deals or grow their company? Realizing the power that you can unleash by bringing in partners is probably one of the biggest and most important lessons you can learn, so learn it now! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to scale more efficiently and more quickly. Imagine, would you like to accomplish a 20 year plan in only 5 years? How would or could that change your life and your future?

    We’re diving into this subject today and are shedding light on this elusive subject. That way you all will have the tools to be able to get out and start connecting with the right investors now.

    Thanks everybody,
    AJ

    How to Structure a Self Storage Deal with Partners

    How to Structure a Self Storage Deal with Partners

    Welcome back everybody to the Self Storage Income Podcast! This is your host AJ Osborne!

    One of the most popular questions I get is - “How do I structure a self storage deal with partners?” Or - “What does a typical deal structure look like?”

    All in all, how do you take the deal, yourself, and your partners, and put it all together? Not only that, what actually IS typical?

    These are all great questions and they’re the perfect type to demonstrate the whole idea of you don’t know what you don’t know. If you’ve never put a deal together or know someone who has, how deals are structured is a total shot in the dark for you. But that’s not a bad thing, and to be honest, that is exactly where I was at not too long ago myself.

    I had no idea what was typical, what partners or investors wanted, I knew nothing. So, when it came time, I reached out to my network and found some answers. Funny thing, I even still got my first deals a little wrong lol. But that’s ok, because learning is a part of the process.

    Today, I hope to help you streamline that process and hope to give you some key insights into exactly how deals can and often are structured. Here is a massive disclaimer though - you can structure a deal however you want or however you can. There’s no one size fits all solution. But this podcast will give you an idea of exactly where to start.

    Thanks a bunch everybody!

    The Number One Key to Self Storage Investing Success

    Welcome back everybody to the Self Storage Income Podcast, this is your host AJ Osborne!

    So chances are, if you’re listening to this podcast… you’re interested in investing in self storage. The chances are also that you want to SUCCEED in self storage investing. Well today we’re talking about possibly the most important aspect of helping to secure self storage investing success.

    We’re talking DEMAND.

    If you don’t or can’t accurately measure a market’s demand, you’re in trouble and this could spell disaster for you and your storage facility. So the question is - how do you accurately measure demand in a given market?

    I’m going to share with you all the top four keys that we focus on that help accurately gauge demand time and time again. These keys of demand will better help you identify self storage opportunity and self storage ruin (or deals you should absolutely stay away from).

    Enjoy, take notes, and make things happen folks! Thanks everybody!
