We used US Census data on Augusta to give you a better idea of these factors.

Vacancy and occupancy rates in the Augusta housing market can help us gauge the demand for living space and thus self-storage space in Augusta, and may hint at storage availability and pricing. High occupancy rates can indicate a lack of housing supply in Augusta, which may correlate to a lack of storage unit inventory and thus higher rental rates for self storage in the Augusta area. 9.8% of housing units in Augusta are vacant according to the US Census, while 90.2% are occupied. The average occupancy rate in US cities is 89%, so it's likely the case that storage facilities in Augusta also have higher than average occupancy rates.
