TO OUR POTENTIAL STOCKHOLDERS:
Did you know that nearly one out of every ten U.S. households rents a self storage
unit? (1) The self storage industry has been the fastest growing sector of the U.S. commercial real estate industry over the last 35 years. (1)
That is why we’ve developed Strategic Storage Trust, Inc. (SSTI). SSTI focuses on the acquisition, operation and development of self storage properties across the United States. We may also invest in other storage related properties such as storage facilities for automobiles, recreational vehicles, and boats. We believe that the retirement of the baby boomers and a fragmented market are just a few of the factors that will provide further economic growth in this industry. Self storage is also an asset class that has recession resistant traits.
We believe that Strategic Storage Trust, Inc. can provide stability, diversification, potential growth and income over the long term. Thank you for considering SSTI for your portfolio. We look forward to serving you.
