The time between Christmas and New Year’s Day is a great opportunity to assess stuff. Particularly stuff that is cluttering your apartment or house. If you are considering storing your belongings, you are in good company! Self-storage facilities in the United States are so popular they have their own national association. According to the Self Storage Association (SSA), this industry generated $27.2 billion in annual U.S. revenues, in 2014 alone. SSA asserts that the self-storage industry has been the fastest-growing segment of the commercial real-estate industry over the last 40 years.
Texas, of course, has its own self-storage organization, the Texas Self Storage Association (TSSA). Some sources identify Houston and Austin as No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in the “Top 10” U.S. cities for self-storage, with San Antonio not far behind.
