Bankruptcy & Distressed Properties

Self Storage Bankruptcy & Distressed Properties, Receivership
If you are encountering a growing number of self storage facilities experiencing financial difficulties or attempting to off-load current self storage assets on the balance sheet, then contact Southeast Management Company.

Southeast Management Company has the resources to assist any and all financial institutions with the tools they need to get that failing property back on track and ready for sale without having to deal with the day to day operations of the facility.

We realize that financial institutions are looking for a quick fix to the property to make it saleable to hopefully recoup their investment and this is where Southeast Management Company excels for numerous reasons:

1. Our team has the ability to correct the shortcomings of the facility from staffing, operations, advertising, expense control and numerous other issues.
2. We also realize that the lending institution does not want to enter into a lengthy management contract. We offer flexibility and short-term management contract terms that we can tailor to your needs.
3. We offer full-service management services including accounting functions.
4. We don’t require you to change your signage or branding of the facility. We work with the tools already in place.
5. We can customize our management services to your needs.

For more information, please call March Chase at 804-436-2596. We look forward to speaking with you.

Site Evaluation: When the cat is away, the mice will play….

Southeast Management Company can provide you with a real picture of what is going on at your self storage facility when you are not there. Unlike other mystery shopping companies that hire “shoppers” with no operational experience, we use proven operations personnel with actual experience out in the field to evaluate just how effective your team is. Our belief is that if you want a true analysis of what is going on at your property, you should use a company that not only has the experience in the industry, but has consultants with proven history as multi-facility managers doing your mystery shops, not a part time student or house wife trying to make some spending money. The answer is obvious. You need a return on your investment and to do so you need a report created by experts you can use to improve the performance of your facility.

Southeast Management Company is offering a HUGE Spring Discount evaluation of your self storage facility that consists of a person site shop to ensure your house is in order before leasing season begins in full swing. Our shopping service is designed to give you a real world picture of just how your customers are being treated by actually visiting your location. After the shop is completed our team will meet with you at your convenience to discuss our findings.

Just imagine the possibilities if you could clearly see how your staff is handling potential customers when you are not present.

To schedule an in-person site shop and receive your 50% Spring Discount, contact us via email at march@southeastmanagementcompany.com or call March Chase at 804-436-2596 for details.
