  • 55% East
  • 6% West
  • 22% Midwest
  • 10% Southeast
  • 4% South

Devon’s current focus is on the 20 largest SMSA’s with primary emphasis on markets that meet the following qualifications:

  • Populations of over 100,000 people within a 3 mile trade area
  • Average rental rates in excess of $125 for a 10×10 unit
  • Deemed under-served based upon household to total market square foot ratios
