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 September 2021, San Antonio is the 16th largest self storage market in the US, with 20,299,247 net rentable square feet (NRSF) of self-storage (363 completed stores). The average facility size is 55,920 NRSF and new supply (prospective, planned and under construction NRSF) represents 6.0% of existing inventory.
Average street rates are $107.00 with net rentable square feet per capita of 9.5. This is slightly 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 6 self-storage properties under construction, 6 planned and 7 that are prospective! Over the previous 2 years the city has added 15 properties totaling 1,229,287 NRSF.
Additionally, climate controlled 10X10 street rates have under performed the national average. Rate growth for the month of September 2021 stands at about 10% increase since September of 2019 compared to the U.S. average of about 11%.
San Antonio is a rapidly growing city, allowing for rates to continue to climb even as new self storage development is breaking ground across the city.
