Strategic Storage Trust II Inc. (SST II), a self-storage real estate investment trust (REIT) sponsored by SmartStop Asset Management LLC, has amended a revolving line of credit with KeyBank. The amended credit facility has a maximum borrowing capacity of $105 million that may be increased up to $500 million, according to a press release. The REIT intends to use the financial flexibility to fund expansion.
I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years. I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs. The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings. This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
