Self-Storage Market Update: Spotlight on the Southeast Region

Self-storage sector performance is not only highly connected with population growth and household formation, it shows strong seasonality. The Southeast, which is the second largest region we track in this industry and a popular pandemic-migration destination, led the year-over-year (YoY) vacancy decline in 2021. However, it started to lose momentum in 2022; and with a -1.0% YoY vacancy decline in 3Q, it slipped to third place after the Southwest and Northeast. Vacancy usually goes up in Q3 and Q4, and this was true in 2022. Asking rent in the Southeast followed a similar recovery path and has been leading the nation’s growth, but the quarter-over-quarter change returned to seasonal decline in Q3.
