Using StorTrack’s Explorer platform for rate analysis in new markets

Demand for self-storage in the U.S. remains high and rate activity continues to reflect this. StrorTrack‘s analysis of the last 3 years shows a steady growth in rates. In the analysis below of nationwide rates, 10×10 non-climate units in 2022 averaged $1.82 per square foot in 2022, up from $1.74 in 2021 and $1.53 in 2020.  Meanwhile 10×10 climate-controlled units averaged $2.22 in 2022, up from $2.07 in 2021 and $1.71 in 2020 – reflecting a 26 percent increase over two years.

For reference, average rates (for all unit types) in 2022 were $1.92 per square foot, $1.84 in 2021 and $1.57 in 2022.

For operators, investors and developers, location and market conditions continue to be the main drivers of self-storage investments. Having insights into the rate trends at a micro-level is important and can be a deciding factor in the type of facility you build as well as its size and unit mix.

StorTrack’s Explorer market analysis platform provides you the tools you need to run a detail analysis of the conditions in any market, including rate trends over the last 3 years. Look into current and historical rates, for specific unit types/sizes, as well as rates for specific stores within the market. All of these tools are available for you to evaluate new markets swiftly and confidently.
