How to Build Your Self Storage Empire with Tim Fadorsen

September 21, 2021

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

We have another incredible guest lined up for you all today - the man himself Tim Fadorsen.

Tim started off in the development and construction world working as a general contractor for years. He ultimately ended up building a self storage facility for a client. Seeing the value of self storage and the great opportunity he could leverage being a general contractor, he immediately began to dive into the world of self storage and began construction on his very own facility.

Tim gives us a run down of his first storage deal and walks us through and up to where he’s at today and what the plans are for the future. We talk about investing strategies, leveraging your skills to get deals done, and he has gone about identifying great self storage markets to develop in.

Enjoy everybody and we’ll see you next time!
AJ

The Truth About Debt - How Debt Can Make or Break You

The Truth About Debt - How Debt Can Make or Break You

August 19, 2021

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

 

Debt - there are very few subjects that have gotten as bad a wrap as debt has. Don’t get me wrong, debt when you don’t understand it… can be downright deadly. But debt used as a rocket fuel for generating wealth and income… that’s when debt becomes a massive force of leverage. 

 

But how? How can taking on debt ever be a good thing? Isn’t buying all cash a better way to go? Isn’t paying off a loan as quickly as possible the best course of action? Yes and no, just like the above gives hint to - it depends on what kind of debt we’re talking about. 

 

Let’s clear this up once and for all - not all debt is BAD and not all debt is created equal. We have two kinds of debt - consumer debt (which is generally bad and that you should try to avoid). And then we have revenue producing debt (which is the sweet nectar of the gods for investors). 

 

This is just the tip of the iceberg and I couldn’t be more excited to help shed some light on this subject because I see it and hear it every single day. I hope this helps you more fully understand the different types of debt, when you should and SHOULDN’T be afraid of debt, and when you can use it effectively to help grow your wealth. 

 

Outside of that, I give a bit of economic back story in regard to capital,  the different types of markets, economic cycles, and more to really take a deep dive on the subject. 

 

Enjoy everybody and we’ll catch you next time!

The Self Storage Industry Today & What the Future Looks Like for Investors with John Lindsey

The Self Storage Industry Today & What the Future Looks Like for Investors with John Lindsey

August 10, 2021

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

 

Today we have an incredible individual on the podcast who I’m honored to call a great friend - the one and only John Lindsey from the Lindsey Self Storage Group. 

 

John has a huge wealth of knowledge when it comes to self storage. He’s done and is still doing it all - he owns and operates his own facilities, owns and operates a commercial real estate brokerage with an emphasis on self storage, has help partner and form the most powerful self storage co-op in the country, has authored a book, the list seriously could go on and on. 

 

Today is simply a down to earth conversation about what John is seeing in the self storage industry currently, what he’s seen and experienced in the past, and what he believes is the not so distant future of self storage. 

 

The self storage industry is not like it used to be. We compressed cap rates, stronger competition, and the space that used to be so fragmented is consolidating at a rapid rate that none of us ever predicted. 

 

What does all this mean for you? What does it mean for us as self storage investors? 

 

Hopefully today, we scrape the surface to help answer these questions. 

 

Thanks for listening everybody and be sure to pick up a copy of John’s book below!

6 Storage Facilities in 2 Years with Jon Farling

6 Storage Facilities in 2 Years with Jon Farling

July 27, 2021

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

Do you know those people who are out there just who just always seem to be crushing it? Well, our guest today is that person and I’m excited to have him on the podcast for you guys. It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Jon Farling.

Jon came from a family who had a bit of a real estate background. His parents owned a duplex and built spec homes. This helped to give the foundations to become a real estate investor… but NOT before he decided to go into sales… True, he wavered a bit, but like we always do as investors, Jon found his way back to real estate investing and started to think seriously.

At first, he was considering single-family rentals as his real estate investment of choice. Finding out though that that route would be far too slow for his desired growth, he decided to start looking at self-storage. Fast forward to today, just two years later and Jon has six facilities that he owns and operates. Super impressive! And we’re going to dive into how exactly he made this happen.

We talk about his first facility, how he’s finding deals, how he scaled so quickly in just two short years, and how to use the right tools in the right place.

Jon is a wealth of knowledge, be sure to soak it up, take notes, and get ready to start building self-storage empires.

Thanks for listening everybody!

Getting Started in Self Storage Investing with 2 Conversions with James Reid

Getting Started in Self Storage Investing with 2 Conversions with James Reid

July 20, 2021

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

There are so many incredible stories out there of people who are getting their self-storage investing journey underway, and today I have a phenomenal episode lined up for you with self-storage investor James Reid. 

James has been in the game for about 4 years, has two storage facilities under his belt, and is continuing to work on building his storage legacy. James started this journey in a somewhat unorthodox way through… these first two storage facilities he’s built and invested in are conversions! Yep, he went all-in from day one and it was awesome being able to sit down with him and discuss how he made all this happen.

James shares why and how he got into self-storage investing after coming from the landscaping contracting world, we go in-depth on his very first storage deal (and conversion), how he found the deal, analyzed it, funded it, and more. James also shares some incredibly creative ways that he’s been able to successfully market his storage facilities while also helping to build and maintain a great community in these markets that he’s in.

We cover it all today and I’m super excited to share this out with you guys.

Thanks for listening everybody,

AJ

Breaking Into Self Storage Investing with Brian and Kelly Saari

Breaking Into Self Storage Investing with Brian and Kelly Saari

July 13, 2021

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

You know those kinds of people you meet that you immediately know they’re just great and genuine people? Well, our guests today are just that. I’m excited to introduce you all to Brian and Kelly Saari.

Through and through, this episode is packed with so much value, I can’t even tell you… How Brian and Kelly have gone from square one, step by step through the process to where they are today is absolutely incredible. They’re the absolute epitome of combining skills with resources and doing what it takes to make huge moves and make huge accomplishments.

Brian and Kelly share how they broke into the self-storage investing world from the buying of the land to them actually building their own storage facility… not with a builder… on their own. This is just one example of their go-getter mentality, their will, and their determination to simply get things done and to make things happen.

Outside of the physical assets themselves, we talk about how Brian and Kelly got started and some of the creative ways they went about getting their self-storage investment portfolio up and running. In addition to this, we talk about management tips, how to understand supply and demand in third-tier markets, and how to build a business that allows you the time and freedom that you’re looking for.

Now I’m just going to shut up and let you guys get to it because this is such an awesome episode. Enjoy, take notes, and listen in on this awesome journey that Brian and Kelly are on.

Thanks everybody!

AJ
