Reis Initiates Coverage of Self Storage Sector



Reis Initiates Coverage of Self Storage Sector

New Product, Developed in Cooperation With the Self Storage Association and
Three Leading REITs, Fills Information Void

LAS VEGAS and NEW YORK, Sept. 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reis, Inc.
(Nasdaq:REIS) ("Reis" or the "Company"), a leading provider of commercial real
estate market information and analytical tools, today introduced coverage of
Self Storage properties in 30 major United States metropolitan markets and 181
submarkets. Reis made the announcement at the Self Storage Association's
annual Fall Conference and Trade Show in Las Vegas. The result of a
collaborative effort between Reis, the Self Storage Association ("SSA"), and
three leading Self Storage real estate investment trusts ("REITs"), this new
coverage provides investors, lenders, developers, Self Storage facility owners
and operators, and industry analysts with the critical local market
intelligence that they require in order to make superior asset- and
portfolio-level decisions. To date, Self Storage professionals have not had
access to current and comprehensive market information from a
nationally-recognized provider. Reis's Self Storage reports are immediately
available for one-off purchase by the owners and operators of the industry's
49,500 Self Storage facilities, and at a discount for SSA's direct members and
firms participating in ongoing data collection, via the organization's
website, www.selfstorage.org. Broad-based subscription access to the new
sector will soon be available in Reis's flagship product, Reis SE, where it
will be licensed separately as an additional module to existing subscriptions.
The product will also be of keen interest to potential new Reis SE subscribers
and will be available within Reis's small business product, ReisReports.com.

"We are delighted to extend to the Self Storage sector the same rigorous
analytical attention that we have long applied to Office, Apartment, Retail,
Warehouse/Distribution, and Flex/R&D markets," said Reis's CEO, Lloyd Lynford.
"Among our client base of large financial institutions, there is burgeoning
interest in allocating both debt and equity capital to the Self Storage
sector."

Mike Scanlon, CEO of the SSA, anticipates that the new coverage will benefit
the industry. "The Self Storage industry has gross annual revenues of more
than $22 billion," he said. "Yet until now, there has been no trusted and
centralized source for local market information to assist Self Storage
Association members with their acquisition, disposition, and management
decisions, or in their dialogue with lending institutions. As we know by
examining best practices within other leading commercial property sectors,
negotiations tend to run more smoothly, and transactions are consummated more
efficiently, when all parties have a common understanding of local market
conditions, supported by the type of objective, granular and timely
information provided by Reis."

The new reports provide average monthly rents for the main Self Storage unit
sizes at the submarket, metro, regional, and national levels. Distinctions are
made between climate controlled and non-climate controlled facilities.
Aggregated rent and occupancy trends are also provided.
