A private investor received a $ 34 million refinance loan with 10 years of interest-only payments. The financing has been secured for a 143,409 net rentable square foot storage facility in Richmond, California. The property located at 321 Canal Blvd. offers 1,114 non-air-conditioned units and 468 air-conditioned units. Storage spaces include 224 car access units.
The Jenkins organization obtained a refinancing of $ 10 million over 10 years. The Full Term Fixed Rate Loan is for a facility located at 1864 Independence Drive in New Braunfels, Texas.

Storage spaces include air-conditioned options and vary between 25 and 300 square feet.
Chicago Capital Funds received a $ 7.5 million loan for a facility in Elmhurst, Illinois. The 10-year non-recourse refinancing includes an interest-only payment period. According to Yardi Matrix, the facility is a three-story building at 877 IL-83. The property offers air-conditioned and non-air conditioned units ranging from 25 to 350 square feet and includes parking spaces for RVs and boats.

A safe investment
Despite declining for three consecutive months, street self-storage prices remained stable through November, according to a recent report from Yardi Matrix. The national average rent for 10 × 10 non-air conditioned units increased 6.7% year over year, reaching $ 127. The figure was down $ 1 from the previous month. Meanwhile, prices for 10 × 10 air-conditioned units rose 8.2% year-on-year to $ 145, down $ 1 from the previous month.
Development activity kept pace with demand, despite rising construction material costs. The November pipeline represented 8.8% of existing inventory, marking a 20 basis point month-over-month increase.
Given the persistent shortage of building materials, some big names in the sector prefer to expand their portfolios through asset acquisitions, according to a recent article by The Wall Street Journal. The sector also attracts investors looking to hedge against inflation.
In November, a joint venture of Harrison Street and Reliant Real Estate Management LLC purchased a portfolio of 26 properties in six states. The acquisition was the largest portfolio transaction in Harrison Street history. The company has invested a total of $ 2.3 billion in self storage properties to date.
