Targeting Assets

Prime Group creates value via its proprietary pipeline of self storage assets, identifying markets in which it wishes to invest and focusing on high-barrier-to-entry markets that are under-supplied in terms of existing self storage facilities (i.e., less than the U.S. average of 7.4 SF of self storage per person). Within those markets, Prime Group then targets assets in major retail corridors with favorable self storage characteristics, including outstanding visibility, access, curb appeal, demographics and traffic counts.

"Before you start trying to work out which direction the property market is headed, you should be aware that there are markets within markets."
Paul Clitheroe

Unique Deal-Sourcing

Prime Group sources off–market transactions via its in–place deal teams, who contact the owners of pre-identified assets. Approximately 80% of self storage owners possess fewer than 10 properties — a hallmark of the unconsolidated self storage asset class. Prime Group’s deal teams develop relationships with these owners. Through this disciplined approach and Prime Group’s excellent reputation for closing deals, the firm has acquired over $1.6 billion of self storage since 2017.

"There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure."
Colin Powell

Buying its
Deals Right

Prime Group buys self storage properties with retail real estate characteristics - good visibility, high traffic counts, high land values and much curb appeal. Having targeted owners of such facilities, Prime Group then acquires the properties at competitive terms. Prime Group is able to generate attractive going-in cash-on-cash returns by adhering to a consistently applied investment approach in various markets throughout the U.S.

"An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory. Don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Maximizing Profits at
Investment exit

Prime Group often refinances its properties within 3 years of acquisition, utilizing existing long-term relationships with various lenders. With exceptional near-term value creation, refinance proceeds often return most or all of the investors’ equity capital. At time of exit, Prime Group packages geographically proximate assets as a portfolio offering; larger deals invariably generate a lower capitalization rate. Prime Group monitors capital market conditions so as to sell its properties at the optimal time, generating the best possible overall rates of return.

"Never count on making a good sale. Have the purchase price be so attractive that even a mediocre sale gives good results."
Warren Buffett

Dedicated Partners

Prime Group is an owner and general partner in all of its investments. Prime Group’s principal provides significant investment equity to each transaction and to Prime Storage Funds I, II and III. Thus, Prime Group’s principal is fully vested in the outcome of each deal, through the life cycle of each investment.
