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

As we all know, this past 2020 year was a little crazy to say the least. Socially, politically, economically… it was the perfect storm. But it wasn’t all doom and gloom and that certainly wasn’t the case for the storage industry.

I’m super excited about today’s episode because we have the one and only John Lindsey on the podcast to share his incredible insights into what storage did in 2020 and what storage is expecting to see in 2021.

Who is John Lindsey? John is a great friend of mine who has some of the most extensive storage experience of anyone I know. John came from an ownership and development side of storage. John’s father built and owned and operated storage facilities, and as any great dad would, put John to work helping to build these incredible assets. Ultimately John decided that he wasn’t super excited about pouring concrete and building the storage facilities. However, he really enjoyed the storage industry, the potential there was to help others in the space, and the incredible business opportunities there were in owning and operating a storage business.

That said, John launched his own brokerage company called the Lindsey Self Storage Group in 2012. From development, to the brokerage side and financing, to owning and operating, John has done it all, and he’s done it all over the world. It’d be an understatement to say that John is an amazing source for self storage industry insights. Which again, is why I’m so excited to have him on the podcast again today.

We’re going to dive into 2020, what happened, how storage performed, what we saw and what we see happening in storage for 2021.

We talk about the billions of dollars being poured into the industry from some of the largest investors and private equity companies in the world. We talk trends that we’re seeing, the incredible financing and buying opportunities there are right now, and more.

All said and done, storage has the recipe for success now and for years to come. But if you plan on getting in, you better do it soon.

Absolutely get those note books out, listen to this episode multiple times if you have to, do what ever you need to soak up everything in this episode.

Thanks for listening everybody,AJ
