31 Mar List Self Storage Offering Free Webinar Series
If you have burning questions about the self storage industry, List Self Storage (LSS) could have your answers. The self storage property sale site is hosting a free webinar series focused on the big issues in the real estate sector of the self storage industry.
The first part of the series, “Financing Options for Your Self Storage Assets,” is now available on the LSS website. The webinar discusses the major financing options available to the self storage industry, focusing on commercial banks, SBA loans, CMBS, life company loans, development loans, and more.
David Levenfeld, President and CEO of Storage Pros Management, LLC, moderated the course. Panelists included Terry Campbell, General Manager of Live Oak Bank‘s self storage lending division, Shawn Hill, Principal at The BSC Group, and Chris Jernigan, Vice President of Investments at Jernigan Capital.
“List Self Storage’s webinar platform is a great way to share information and educate potential borrowers on the facts and benefits of the SBA programs,” says Campbell. “It’s also a chance to dispel the incorrect information that exists out there in regard to SBA and self storage.”
“We are pleased to be included as part of this informational webinar series,” Hill says. “One of our corporate objectives is to create transparency and contribute our knowledge on the financing options available to self storage owners and operators, and this is an excellent forum to do so”.
The series will run through 2016 and feature four pre-recorded webinars examining finance, third-party management, broker representation, and store management. The second installment is set for May.
After just launching in January 2015, LSS has become a popular online hub for brokers and vendors to reach out to potential clients, as well as for operators to learn about trends in the self storage industry.
LSS also features a comprehensive online directory of real estate transaction professionals within the self storage industry. The vendor directory provides a full-service reference for all aspects of developing, building, purchasing, financing, managing, and selling a facility. In addition to the website, the LSS biweekly newsletter highlights recent transactions and has quickly become a valued resource for self storage professionals.
