Self Storage Acquisitions

Since our beginnings in 1993, we have acquired 99 facilities. Of those facilities, 65 percent already existed, with the rest being conversions and ground-up developments. We remain interested in areas with current facilities or the potential for new facilities.

Determine If You Fit Our Market

Our geographic spread has been:

  • East: 55 percent
  • West: 6 percent
  • Midwest: 22 percent
  • Southeast: 10 percent
  • South: 4 percent
  • Southwest: 2 percent

Devon’s current focus is on the 20 largest Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs), with primary emphasis on markets that meet the following qualifications:

  • Populations of over 100,000 people within a three-mile trade area
  • Average rental rates of at least $125 for a 10×10 unit
  • Deemed under-served based upon household-to-market ratios

Devon’s acquisition criteria include land and conversion candidates that have strong retail components, including access, visibility, and traffic counts. Likewise, we’re also interested in existing sites that need lease-up, like facilities where ownership is looking for operations at a larger level.
