July 29, 2021

For this blog I wanted to focus on a specific city in Texas and provide a brief update on the self-storage market within that city. For this blog, that specific city is San Antonio, and the data comes from Yardi Matrix.

As of June 2021, San Antonio is the 16th largest self storage market in the US, with 20,152,075 net rentable square feet (NRSF) of self-storage (361 completed stores). The average facility size is 55,822 NRSF and new supply (prospective, planned and under construction NRSF) represents 5.3% of existing inventory.

Average street rates are $103.00 with net rentable square feet per capita of 9.4. This is far above the Texas average of 7 NRSF per capita. Population growth over the next 5 years is expected to be 5.7%.

There are currently 4 self-storage properties under construction, 8 planned and 4 that are prospective. Over the previous 2 years the city has added 18 properties totaling 1,541,223 NRSF.

Additionally, climate controlled 10X10 street rates have   under performed the national average. Rate growth for the month of June 2021 stands at about 8% increase since June of 2019 compared to the U.S. average of about 12%.

San Antonio is a fast growing city and amazing opportunity for commercial self-storage investment. The city provides great population growth and income. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you are interested in discussing potential opportunities!
