Why Live Oak



We have self-storage loan team members with direct experience opening and operating their own facilities, so they understand the steps you need to take to run a successful business. From completing a feasibility study to helping you select the right ventilation system for your facility, we are more than your lender. We are a teammate who relies on our industry expertise and past experiences to provide the guidance you need throughout the life of your loan.


Cash Flow

If you don’t have the equity or collateral needed to obtain a conventional loan, it doesn’t mean you have to give up on your dreams of self-storage business ownership. Our loans are based on cash flow, which is your ability to pay us back. Available cash is the lifeblood of your business, and we know it. We lend you the right amount of money for your business to succeed.



To our team, you’re more than a number. You are a partner. We take the time to visit your site or facility and walk through your vision to help you determine the right way to capture the right customers. Other banks will give you money. We will give you money, time, knowledge and a long-lasting partnership.
