Storage World Analyzer Software, Version 2
Newly updated with expanded projection capability! The numerous variables that make self-storage a unique real estate asset also make conventional predictive tools less than ideal when determining if a potential buy will make a good investment. This cloud-based software is designed to provide self-storage buyers and investors with detailed cash-on-cash return estimates and 10-year cash-flow projections based on unit/pricing mix and several assumption variables, including acquisition price and other investment costs, income, expenses, occupancy, capitalization rate, and debt service. It includes:

  • Internal rate of return forecasting
  • Cash-on-cash estimates
  • 10-year cash-flow projections
  • Unit-mix and pricing-optimization tools
  • Easy, step-by-step recording of data variables
  • Detailed, printable reports
  • Ability to customize reports with company logo
  • Video tutorials
  • Unlimited access with no time constraints

Version 2 of the software has been streamlined for efficiency and ease of use, and includes new and refined modules that allow users to make long-term projections on all types of self-storage property investments including:

  • Existing facility acquisitions
  • Raw land with new construction
  • Conversion projects
  • Facility expansions

Self-storage investor Mark Helm created Storage World Analyzer to help him better examine potential deals on existing storage facilities or land purchases. He spent a dozen years improving the program for personal gain prior to making the cloud-based program available to other investors and operators. 

Use of Storage World Analyzer does not guarantee investment success. Its usefulness as an analytical tool is predicated on the accuracy of the data put into the system. Industry averages may be used to generate initial reports and then replaced with more accurate assumptions collected during due diligence to assist with projections.
