Real Estate and Self Storage in Lake Charles, LA

Vacancy and occupancy rates in the Lake Charles housing market can help us gauge the demand for living space and thus self-storage space in Lake Charles, and may hint at storage availability and pricing. Low rates of vacancy in Lake Charles housing could indicate that real estate is in short supply. Self storage units in Lake Charles may then also be in short supply, which means Lake Charles storage unit prices may be higher. The US Census estimates that housing vacancy rates in Lake Charles are at 10.9%, while the occupancy rate is at 89.1%.
