In our opinion, the management team at Extra Space is excellent. Over the past decade, management has delivered strong occupancy growth, rental growth, and expense containment, which has resulted in a capital cost advantage relative to peers. Since 2010, management has capitalized on its capital cost advantage by tripling the amount of owned storage. We believe the company’s long-term growth opportunities remain strong.
