A recession resistant portfolio through mini & self storage
Specialty real estate is largely a forgotten asset class. But products like mobile home parks and storage facilities offer several benefits to investors.
The competition for a limited supply of single family rentals means that most investors can’t scale quickly. Mobile home park (MHP) investing allows for more scale at a lower cost per unit - with less maintenance and greater diversification (economies of scale across more units).
Mini and self-storage investing offers similar benefits. Relatively resistant to recession - and with similar demand drivers as a multifamily asset - mini storage investments deliver strong cash flow with lower downside risk.
