Self-storage investing saved AJ Osborne’s life. After sudden paralysis and being left in a coma, AJ was fired from his job. He couldn’t work, walk, breathe, or do anything without assistance. Strapped to a hospital bed, with only the ability to blink “yes” or “no” to the doctors, AJ didn’t have to worry about bills getting paid or whether his kids would have a happy Christmas—self-storage took care of his finances while he miraculously recovered.
For this reason and many others, self-storage may be the best real estate investment on the planet. But you’ve probably never considered it or looked into buying a facility. For less money, self-storage facilities produce more cash flow, less headache, and significantly lower risk than rentals. Even better? There are no clogged toilets or broken refrigerators. Just four walls and a metal door—that’s the entire investment.
In today’s show, you’ll be brought to the light side, seeing how self-storage, a traditionally unsexy asset class, beats rental properties in almost every way imaginable, plus how this asset was able to save AJ’s life and financial future. AJ even explains why now may be the BEST time to get into self-storage.
