The dynamics of Self-Storage Appraisal has changed dramatically in recent years. Variable pricing models are being increasingly used to price storage units much like the airline industry. Since storage space rental does not involve long-term commitments for rental rates facility owners will often deeply discount spaces to fill the units and then gradually increase the rates as the facilities fill up. This results in the reported physical
occupancy level of facilities often being reported as quite high even though the economic
occupancy rate is really much lower. Self-Storage Appraisers in the Chicago market that have not stayed current with these trends can easily over value this product type because they confuse physical occupancy with the far more relevant economic vacancy in projecting income.

Our Self-Storage Real Estate Appraisers are careful to distinguish between real estate value (which is taxable) and business value (which is not). Property tax rates vary substantially in the Chicago market and have a profound impact on Self-Storage property values. The south suburban Chicago area is being reassessed in 2017. This area is known for some of the highest property tax rates in the area (and the country) which has been severely hurting Self-Storage property values.
