Ariah Rastegar learned many lessons from the housing market crash of 2008 and the recession of that time. After heading a private equity investment firm’s opening of a New York City office, Ariah Rastegar returned to his home state of Texas where he started Rastegar Equity Partners, which primarily invests in commercial real estate throughout the United States. One of the primary investments he puts his eyes on it is in self-storage companies, which Rastegar and his associates consider recession-resilient. Here’s why they are usually good commercial real estate investments:
Simply put, self-storage businesses present excellent business and real estate investment opportunities because people use these businesses in times of economic stress and economic upswings. No matter what is happening with the housing market, people will always need a place to store their belongings. Amid a housing crisis, people will make more use of self-storage facilities as well. These recession-resilient businesses can give investors great opportunities even when the market seems sluggish and not worthy of investment. Ariah Rastegar believes in sharing his strategies, providing full transparency and educating the public.
