Blue Box Self Storage

32,950 NRSF | 189 Units | Rosenberg, TX (Houston MSA)

Under Contract

INVESTMENT OVERVIEW

Blue Box Self Storage consists of 189 traditional non-climate & drive-up units. The facility boasts a wide array of unit sizes from 5×10 to 30×40 large industrial-sized units. There is considerable management upside to this property as it has never been given the proper attention and modernization needed to bring it to full stabilization. As of December 26, 2021, the facility is 83% physically occupied with a 66% economic occupancy thus providing a new operator considerable rate and management upside. Furthermore, a new operator will have the ability to capitalize on ancillary income sources as rental income is the only source currently.

The property is located in the city of Rosenberg, TX which is currently a developing city with new construction of retail, office, and multi-family developments going in around it. The facility offers automatic security cameras, gate & keypad access, LED storage lights, concrete driveways surrounding the drive-up units. There are two different entrances and exits offering tenants easy access points around the facility.

The property was taken over by the current owner in 2018 and did considerable aesthetic upgrades. Further, current ownership implemented management software to help with organization. However, the software was never built to offer tenants the option to rent units online which provides new ownership an easy way to help with automation and increasing occupancy levels. There is currently no manager who stays onsite to take calls, rent units, or have the ability to take walk ins. The current owner visits the site for a very limited amount of time every week and is unable to easily meet new incoming tenants, collect rents effectively, clean out units, and perform auctions when necessary.
