From 0 To 1.5 Million sq/ft: The Story Jeremiah Boucher

Jeremiah Boucher started with a dream and made that into a 1.5 million square foot self-storage portfolio of 61 properties in only 7 years. In this Self-Storage University discussion, we review how Jeremiah found and financed his deals, as well as what his thoughts and lessons learned are regarding investing in the self-storage sector. Hosting this discussion is Frank Rolfe, who has amassed over a $1 billion portfolio of real estate assets – with his partner Dave Reynolds – which includes self-storage holdings. Frank also started with just one property and offers his views on the storage niche. Jeremiah has achieved this level of success by focusing on the fertile sector of self-storage – suburban and exurban properties which you can buy directly from the original moms and pops – and avoiding the urban, often multi-story properties that are now faced with declining markets, rents, and occupancy.
