Why invest with Oaktree Equity?
Since it started three years ago, has grown into a team of over 30 dedicated individuals focused on acquiring, developing, improving and managing real estate assets. We have a combined two decades of experience acquiring and managing real estate projects. In addition to our goal of acquiring more self storage, as part of our 3-year (2020 - 2023) strategic plan, our objectives include building a syndication team capable of monetizing all opportunities, refining our in-house property management system and enhancing our asset management infrastructure to improve the financial performance of acquired assets. On the development side, our goals are focused on improving our project management timetables and developing a dynamic underwriting team to provide a competitive terms.
All this is to say - we have the track record to show our experience and we're focused on growth.
What is your competitive edge?
As a vertically integrated company, we have the ability to control the entire life cycle of an asset.
In addition, anyone can buy a stable, performing property - but our track record showcases our ability to also do "heavy lifts".
When it comes to distressed properties or severely mismanaged sites, we are also capable of repositioning those assets into a stable, valuable asset.
What can I expect as an investor?
To put it in one sentence: to own a multimillion dollar asset headache-free. To elaborate: our property and asset management team will handle everything involving daily operations to monthly, quarterly and yearly financial reporting.
Our team is hyperfocused on utilizing technology (and looking for the best new technology and platforms) to help improve business operations and also your experience as an investor.
What are my returns?
Every offering will be different, so you can refer to your offering package for the exact details. However, know that you will get a quarterly check (or direct deposit) and monthly performance reports and quarterly summaries from the asset management team. And should you have any questions, our responsive investor relations team is ready at your fingertips!
Should I invest in self storage?
Maybe a decade ago, self storage wasn't really common news. Even now, among other investors, we find that most tend to visit other asset classes first.
Perhaps it's because the idea seems foreign, or not as clout-building and "sexy" as new multi-family acquisition or development... Now that we've been in the trenches for almost a decade: we can say it's one of our favorite investments. If you are looking for somewhere stable to put your money, a stress-free investment (compared to other types of commercial real estate, and especially residential real estate) and don't care about bragging rights, this is the way to go.
