What Is Going On In San Antonio?

San Antonio

March 31, 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. That specific city is San Antonio, and the data comes from Yardi Matrix.

As of February 2021, San Antonio is the 16th largest market in the US, with 19,962,577 net rentable square feet (NRSF) of self-storage (360 completed stores). The average facility size is 55,451 NRSF and new supply (prospective, planned and under construction NRSF) represents 5.3% of existing inventory.

Average street rates are $97.00 with net rentable square feet per capita of 9.3. This is slightly above the Texas average of 7 NRSF per capita. Population growth over the next 5 years is expected to be 6.1% which will help fill some of that new supply.

There are currently 2 self-storage properties under construction, 7 planned and 5 that are prospective. Over the previous 2 years 20 properties have been added to the city totaling 1,645,573 NRSF.

Climate controlled 10X10 street rates have underperformed the national average ending 2020 up only 1% compared to the U.S. average of about 2.5%.

The top project under construction is a 91,998 NRSF Life Storage facility with a projected completion date of April of this year.

San Antonio is a great opportunity for commercial self-storage investment. The city provides great population growth, income, and relatively low saturation. If you are interested in discussing potential opportunities, please do not hesitate to reach out to us!
