CHICAGO—Not long ago, revenue growth for the self-storage sector was off the charts. That led to a robust level of acquisitions, especially by the five major public REITs that lead the industry. That growth has leveled off, but strong demand throughout self-storage continues to fuel expansion, as well as attract new private equity into the space. Furthermore, after a relatively quiet period, the public REITs are most likely gearing up for another round of acquisitions in the near future.
