Self Storage Acquisitions

Self Storage and Land Acquisitions

Pogoda Companies purchases select existing properties and developable land for self storage facilities in markets in which they currently have facilities or by acquiring portfolios to create a critical mass.

Once an investment is targeted, Pogoda handles all facets of the acquisition, including contract negotiations, project financing and renovation (if necessary).

If requested, we will readily participate in 1031 exchanges and can structure a purchase so that capital gains are deferred far into the future. We will also consider joint ventures.

Only properties in the strongest markets with the potential for extraordinary returns are selected. If you have an opportunity that meets our acquisition criteria contact Maurice Pogoda at 248.855.9676 or
