Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 06, 2014
MiniCo Publishing has published the 2014 edition of its “Self-Storage Almanac,” which is now available for purchase. The latest edition of the “Almanac,” a trusted source of research for self-storage professionals and investors for over 20 years, reflects a new cooperative relationship between MiniCo and the national Self Storage Association (SSA).
Data and information within the 2014 edition of the “Self-Storage Almanac” was provided by the SSA from its many research sources. This includes self-storage consumer information from the SSA’s “Self Storage Demand Study” published in 2013, the association’s detailed market inventory database of the nation’s properties by county and state, and historical data and market analytics produced by REIS, Inc., a trusted national provider of commercial real estate market information and analysis.
SSA President and CEO Michael T. Scanlon, Jr., noted that the new “Almanac” is a benchmark moment for the association. “For many years, our goal as the national trade group has been to become the preeminent provider of research to the self-storage industry, its stakeholders, investors, and analysts,” he said. “The various research tools gathered by the SSA over the past few years are paying great dividends for our members. We believe that the industry will benefit even more from this new relationship with MiniCo as this expertise reaches an even greater audience.”
“The end result of this collaboration is that the ‘2014 Self-Storage Almanac’ will provide owners and operators with the up-to-date information they need to make critical business decisions,” said MiniCo Publisher Poppy Behrens. “Now, more than ever, the ‘Almanac’ remains the ‘go-to’ research source for the self-storage industry. We hope this year’s changes will make it even easier for self-storage professionals to gather the critical industry information they need.”
The “2014 Self-Storage Almanac” is available for purchase in both print and digital formats at http://www.ministoragemessenger.com/2014Almanac. Topics include a self-storage industry profile, economics and demographics, customer traits, customer needs and preferences, unit mix and site access, rental rates, understanding occupancy rates, marketing, utilizing technology, finance, valuation, and market conditions.
