Self-Storage National Rental Activity Report
The Self-Storage National Rental Activity Report, prepared monthly by Cushman & Wakefield and Self Storage Data Services, provides statistical insight to industry rental and occupancy performance. Information includes comparisons to the previous year, quarter and/or month for same-store data provided by thousands of U.S. self-storage facilities. Each report includes:
- National rental-demand benchmarks (move-ins, move-outs, net absorption)
- Geographic rental-demand benchmarks by region (move-ins, move-outs, total activity)
- Physical occupancy change by region
- Net monthly unit absorption
- Total rental activity
- Asking rental-rate changes by unit size and type
- Asking rental-rate changes by geographic region
- Gross potential income by geographic region
The National Rental Activity Report will appeal to self-storage owners, investors, analysts, appraisers and brokers who wish to follow industry trends and see national benchmarks against which to measure their own or other facilities. The report also will be useful to small self-storage operators who wish to compare their facility performance to national benchmarks.
