    in the properties we recently started operating as a result of our acquisition of Privileged Access and all properties, our ability to control costs, property market conditions, the actual rate of decline in customers, the actual use of sites by customers and our success in acquiring new customers;
    our ability to maintain rental rates and occupancy with respect to properties currently owned or pending acquisitions;
    our assumptions about rental and home sales markets;
    the completion of pending acquisitions and timing with respect thereto;
