Just starting your Batavia self storage search? There are a few things you should know. Batavia storage unit prices and availability are closely related to things like real estate prices, the type of housing available in the area, the city's wealth, and whether or not many people are moving to the area. In order to give you a better idea of these factors in Batavia, we pulled in data from the US Census.
Many people use storage as part of their move, so if there are many people moving to Batavia, you might expect storage prices to be higher and unit availability to be lower. We can get a good idea of whether or not many people are moving to or from Batavia by looking at the change in population. According to the US Census, the Batavia metro area's population grew from 1,616 in 2010 to 1,645 in 2014, a growth rate of 1.79%.
Housing occupancy and vacancy rates in Batavia can help us get a better idea of how much demand there is for living and storage space in Batavia and thus the kind of storage prices and availability we should expect to find. If housing occupancy rates in Batavia are high, it's probably safe to assume that storage facility occupancy rates in Batavia are also high, which would push unit prices up. The US Census estimates that housing vacancy rates in Batavia are at 11.8%, while the occupancy rate is at 88.2%. The average occupancy rate in US cities is 89%, so it's likely the case that storage facilities in Batavia also have higher than average occupancy rates. High occupancy rates in Batavia will make it more difficult to find a good deal on a storage unit.
