Just starting your Arlington self storage search? There are a few things you should know. The pricing and availability of storage units in Arlington will depend on several factors such as the real estate climate, the number of people moving into or throughout the area, housing conditions in the city, and the general wealth and prosperity of the area. The US Census keeps accurate data relating to all of these factors, so we've used their data on Arlington to help inform your Arlington self storage search.
Self storage is commonly used as a secure place to store one's belongings when moving into a new home. If there's a high amount of moving activity in Arlington, that could affect storage unit pricing and availability. Population changes over time are one way of gauging the amount of moving activity in Arlington. According to the US Census, the Arlington metro area's population grew from 11,532 in 2010 to 11,634 in 2014, a growth rate of 0.88%.
Housing occupancy and vacancy rates in Arlington can help us get a better idea of how much demand there is for living and storage space in Arlington and thus the kind of storage prices and availability we should expect to find. Low rates of vacancy in Arlington housing could indicate that real estate is in short supply. Self storage units in Arlington may then also be in short supply, which means Arlington storage unit prices may be higher. According to US Census estimates, 95.8% of housing units in Arlington are occupied, while the vacancy rate is at 4.2%. That's a lower vacancy rate than the average for cities in the United States, and suggests that storage facility vacancy in Arlington may also be lower. Low vacancy allows storage facilities to charge higher rent, so a cheap storage unit could be trickier to find in Arlington than in other cities.
