What Our Students Say...

“If you are still thinking about participating in the educational training programs with Scott Meyers, I can tell you that learning with Scott and taking action will definitely change your life! I’m sure we are going to meet at one of his future events and I would be happy to tell you my successful story. Take action and join our team to turn all your dreams into a wonderful and happy reality.”

– Alberto Bernardoni

“Thank you for all that you do every day. We truly could not have done this deal without you and your organization’s help, guidance, advice, connections, experience, and encouragement. I’m proud to be a part of this organization and looking forward to doing more deals with you going forward.”

– David and Elisabeth Landoll

“There are 2 things that really impressed me about this event. 1 – the amount of information that they provide in 3 days. 2 – it’s great to meet Scott’s team and see what they did to help us out. True value of being here is meeting all the other attendees of the class, learn where they’re at and potentially partner with them in the future.”

– Greg Roche

“After attending The Self-Storage Academy, we bought a 373 unit facility in San Antonio at an 11% cap rate. We paid $1,275,000 and we borrowed over $900,000 even in these so called “hard credit times” and partnered with a private investor for a $0 money down deal! The annual positive cash flow is now over $100,000.00!”

– Mark Torok


Here's What The Experts Say About Self-Storage…

“Self-storage is a unique asset class. It has a reputation of providing relatively high yields and has shown to be relatively resistant to recessions due to its lower declines and default ratios versus other asset classes.”

– David Thompson, BiggerPockets

“One of the hallmarks of a recession is the movement of consumers into less spacious accommodations. As wages stagnate, and the employment picture gets grimmer, homeowners and renters tend to downgrade the size of their homes, but they still need a place to store their stuff. Self-storage facilities benefit from this demand and can see increased rental rates during a downturn.”

– Ari Rastegar, SpareFoot

“Let’s assume you had $200,000 to invest in 1994 and put your money equally into two investments. One investment for $100,000 in a self-storage REIT and reinvested all earnings while you put another $100,000 into the S&P 500 and reinvested all dividends. By 2017, the self-storage REIT would have grown to $4,026,413 while your S&P 500 stock fund would have grown to $532,243. Self-storage outperformed the large capitalization stocks index by a whopping $3,494,170.”

– David Thompson, Bigger Pockets

“The bottom line is that if we go into a bad housing market, people have to put their stuff somewhere. When the economy is good and people buy too much stuff they have to put it in storage. You’re winning as the market goes down, and winning as the market goes up.”

– Joel Cone, US News

Want to Passively Invest in Self-Storage?

While we have many resources available give you the tools, training, and support that you need to purchase and manage a facility yourself, we realize than many don’t wish to dedicate the time and capital necessary to learn how to invest, find a property, do the underwriting and due diligence, and actually invest in a facility themselves.

That’s why we also provide you ways to invest in lucrative self-storage deals completely passively. Check out our other site, to learn more and see our passive investment offerings.
