December 8, 2021 27 min

Episode Description

There aren’t many people that think about acquiring Self-Storage, but let me ask you, how does low maintenance, low expenses, and high NOI sound to you? It may surprise you just how lucrative this investment class is. Hunter Jones is a former Multifamily investor, turned self-storage investor focused on the East Tennessee area. Hunter started in wholesaling and Multifamily in 2018 with 2 other partners and grew a portfolio of 100 units in a short amount of time. He is now focused on Self Storage Acquisitions with his brother Harper in the East Tennessee area. Their strategy focuses on acquiring distressed, value adds assets and turning them around for a profit.

Dive in as we talk about how Hunter is able to land great deals that fly under most people’s radar, his transition into self-storage, and the benefits that come with self-storage as an asset!
