Chestermere Winter/Spring Self-Storage LP Update

with No Comments

Operational Update

 

Leasing up a storage facility during winter months is a bit out of the norm. We were very happy to see this trend continue while also having 11 people on the waiting list for larger units, which will help with our lease up once our expansion is complete.

 

 

Financial Update

We have completed our 2021 year end and T5013s were sent to all investors at the end of March. 2021 was a great growth year for Chestermere and we ended the year at 69.9% storage occupancy with total revenues of $875,903. This represents a 47.42% increase in revenue YoY from our 2020 total of $594,161. Excluding amortization, Chestermere was profitable in 2021 – a very significant step for the LP.

 

 

As, you can see from the above YTD management reports, 2022 continues to show growth. The first quarter is typically very slow for storage, but revenue has continued to grow and occupancy as well. Chestermere is currently over 80% occupied!

 “Summer 2021 appraisal (after expansion) – Colliers $20,140,00 with roughly $8M in debt on property”

 

  • Our main goal in 2022 is to complete the planned expansion for Chestermere. Management believes the additional space will maximize revenue and position Chestermere for a potential exit in 2023

 

  • Phase 2 is expected to add ~28,000 Sq Ft net rentable and over $700,000 in gross annual revenue potential

Chestermere Self-Storage LP – Q3 2021 Update

with No Comments

Operational Update

In late 2020, StoreWest replaced our existing facility Manager with Bluebird. In addition to leasing up the facility, Bluebird’s main focus has been on bringing up our revenues and financial occupancy. This has been achieved through systematic rent increases as noted below. The net result has been a dramatic increase in monthly revenue.

Financial Update

 

  • As of the end of September, storage is at ~75% occupancy and our RV lots are at 95%+ with waiting lists.
  • Chestermere is fully profitable and phase 1 is nearing full stabilization (85% occupancy)
Summer 2021 appraisal (after expansion) – Colliers $20,140,00 with roughly $7.6M in debt on property
  • Management is currently focused on securing permits, financing, and a reasonable quote for the proposed phase 2 expansion.
  • Phase 2 is expected to add ~28,000 SqFt net rentable and over $700,000 in gross annual revenue potential.

2019 Winter Update

 

We’re pleased to report that this project has been going very well. The RV and boat storage portion of the business is now at 80% occupancy and the existing storage facility is at 40% occupancy and strongly trending in the right direction. Management went through a process this summer to better understand if expanding the storage facility would add value to the project. As a result of their findings, the decision has been made to significantly expand the facility in 2020. At current levels, the facility is profitable and the future looks exciting. Management has been approached by several groups interested in purchasing the property. The interest has been significant enough that they are planning to officially market the property in Q1 2020 and solicit offers.
We currently have the investment on your accounts valued at book value. It is safe to say that this understates the value of your investment.

Additional details are included in the below update from Management.
