Editor's Note           
It's Your Move!
After three years of momentum building in the self-storage investment market, buyers and lenders will place what could be record amounts of capital into self-storage properties by the end of 2014. Self-storage lending is fundamentally strong and lenders are continuing to maintain disciplined underwriting standards all while creating liquidity and a fluid transaction market. At the same time, overall market fundamentals are remaining strong with demand surging and supply of new product still slow in coming. The question on many investors' minds is "how long will this last?" 
In this month's Market Monitor, Ben Vestal examines the options that are available to self storage owners today who may be looking to take advantage of these historic market conditions.
