Several free, educational self-storage webinars will be held next month. A webinar comes from the words "web" and "seminar." A webinar is a meeting or conference that is held over the Internet, usually for training or educational purposes.
The first upcoming self-storage webinar, "Capital Markets and Self Storage Market Overview," will be held on Feb. 18, from 1 p.m. to 2:20 p.m. CT. It will be hosted by Holliday Fenoglio Fowler (HFF), a commercial real estate capital intermediary with 17 offices all around the country. Holliday Fenoglio Fowler specializes in finding financing for real estate deals, averaging 3.8 closings per business day. Last October, HFF closed the sale of a nine-property Texas self-storage portfolio to Harrison Street Real Estate Capital. Over the summer, HFF closed the sale of two New Jersey self-storage properties. And at the beginning of 2009, HFF helped The Hampshire Companies to buy Berkeley Heights Self Storage, in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, by securing $6 million in financing. [More]
