CHICAGO—Self-storage buildings have continued to perform well during the third quarter of 2013, according to a new report by Chicago-based MJ Partners Real Estate Services. The top four self-storage companies all saw revenue increases between 5.5% and 9.0% in the third quarter, MJ Partners found. Furthermore, the NOIs of each company grew as well, ranging from 7.2% to 10.0% year-over-year. The researchers also found strong customer demand and robust acquisition activity. Occupancy rates ranged from 90.5% to 94.4% and the publicly-listed REIT Public Storage, the largest storage firm with 2,110 US sites, just this year either acquired or had under contract about $1 billion worth of properties.
