Get the latest self-storage operating expenses!

For nearly 40 years, real estate professionals, investors, brokers, owners, managers, researchers, appraisers, governmental agencies, and market observers have turned to Mini-Storage Messenger’s educational publications for self-storage data, statistics and information. We developed the Self-Storage Expense Guidebook because so many readers of the annual Self-Storage Almanac requested additional information on the operating expenses for self-storage properties.

Once again, we have partnered with the self-storage teams at Newmark Knight Frank to bring you the latest industry expense data.  The 2020 edition of the Guidebook is based upon responses from owners and operators of self-storage properties, nationwide.
