10:15-11:00am Take Your Self-Storage Facility from Class-C to Class-A – on a Budget ••• Theresa Gallas, Janus International Group

In a time where cost of capital is high, and acquisition opportunities are limited, many operators are turning to their own portfolios for opportunities to increase revenue. Making just a handful of improvements to aging facilities or implementing minor technology, can translate into real value for you as the owner/operator and in the minds of your tenants. Join us to learn what key updates can be made on a budget in order to take your facility from Class C to Class A.
