Key Takeaways:

"In a single family, you have evictions. If you're in major cities, we don't have eviction laws in self-storage; we have lien laws. So, the moment somebody does not pay, you can go by that state's lien law." - Jay Bowman

"We like to keep it simple. I think that we're going to see many people in the future start moving towards investments where simplicity rules. There's just a lot of cash, a lot of ease; it's a very in and out type of business. While residential is not that way." - Jay Bowman

"What used to be digging through a very small pile of coal to find a diamond, nowadays, through a very large pile of coal is the value that has really just gone up." - Jay Bowman
