The Cedar Creek Approach
The simplicity of our operating model has driven outsized returns for our investors for nearly two decades.
Cedar Creek Capital
Cedar Creek Capital is a vertically integrated real estate private equity firm specializing in the acquisition, development, and management of self-storage facilities. Cedar Creek Capital drives shareholder values through operational synergies throughout our entities.
The BIRD Model
We apply this model to mid-level risk growth assets and low-level risk stabilized assets to deliver investors maximum return potential with minimum downside exposure.
We target 50,000 square foot facilities in growing markets with a minimum population of 30,000.
From systems and operations to employees and amenities, we identify value-add opportunities and implement them accordingly to give our investors maximum return potential.
Reduce Risk, Take Money Out
We then leverage the capital we have in the asset and refinance it into a non-recourse loan, reducing any potential risks and clearing our investors of any liability.
Do It Again
We implement this strategy over and over again to turn underperforming facilities into market leaders.

Cedar Creek’s Investor Success Formula
We search high and low for facilities with extreme upside potential, here’s our criteria:
We search for facilities in markets with at least 30,000 people in order to ensure long-term economic growth for our investors.
The facilities we target have no less than 50,000 rentable square feet, leaving plenty of room for new tenants.
We target facilities in strong markets with high visibility, ensuring the future is bright for all of our investors.
72% of self-storage facilities are owned by mom and pop operators which provides enormous acquisition potential and exit opportunities for our investors.
Self-storage utilization among American households exceeded 10% meaning that more than 1 out of every 10 U.S. households are renting a self-storage unit.
We identify and target underperforming facilities in these markets in order to apply the BIRD Method and get maximum cash flow potential for our investors.
