Self Storage Income

Your First Facility - How to Find it, Fund it, and Manage it with Masha Klapanova

June 1, 2021

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

As you all might imagine, we get A TON of questions about how to get started investing in self-storage. We get asked all time - how do I analyze a market for self-storage? How do you add value to a storage facility? How do you fund or finance a storage facility? How do you find good self-storage deals?

Well, today we answer every single one of those questions with our amazing guest Masha Klapanova.

Masha just recently closed on her first storage facility. First things first… Masha, CONGRATULATIONS!! The first facility is a huge step towards building your self-storage holdings and it only gets better from there. Masha is super excited and shares a wealth of knowledge with us on today’s episode. This is such an amazing podcast because she gets to share with us everything she went through to find, fund, acquire, and now manage this facility. It wasn’t easy and it took time and creativity to make it a reality. Having literally just gone through this amazing experience, it's awesome to hear about her journey every step of the way.

So if you’re just getting started in self-storage or trying to figure out how to get started, this is an episode you won’t want to miss. If you have a few facilities under your belt, you’ll enjoy hearing Masha’s awesome story as much as I did, and you might even keep in touch with her and the great work she’s doing.
