AARCS provides conventional lending all over Nationwide on loan requests for Self-storage financing. We will provide financing on all types of self-storage facilities. AARCS will work with you to provide the right loan structure for your self-storage facility whether it is a purchase, refinance, or construction. We have financed self-storage facilities that are being leased up, are already fully leased, or have yet to start construction.

We specialize in providing permanent financing for self-storage projects. AARCS can provide you with either fixed or adjustable rate options depending on your need. If you are purchasing a self-storage facility that is struggling and needs to be turned around AARCS can offer you a loan based off future projections.

This loan is typically amortized over 25 years with a term of 5 years. This gives you the time to turn your self-storage property around and then finance it with a longer-term fixed rate mortgage.
