Self Storage Street Rates Drop Again, Yardi Matrix Reports


National average rate for all unit types was $142 in November

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Dec. 20, 2022 – National self storage street rates continued to slow down last month, in line with typical seasonal trends, according to the latest National Self Storage Report from Yardi® Matrix.

“Despite the drop from peak levels, the bigger picture shows street rates are healthy, as they are still more than 10 percent higher than they were prior to the pandemic,” states the new report. “Although demand has weakened slightly due to seasonality and the housing market’s slowdown, occupancy remains high and operators are focusing on increasing rates for existing customers. Meanwhile, the development pipeline is anticipated to gradually slow.”

The overall average national street rate, which includes all standard-size unit types, was $142 in November, a decrease of 0.7 percent year-over-year. That is the lowest the overall national rate has been in 17 months.

Unique unit types, specifically 10×20 and 10×30 climate-controlled lockers, performed very well on an annual basis, helping boost the overall rate performance compared to the performance of 10×10 non-climate-controlled (NON CC) and climate-controlled (CC) units.
