Self Storage: A Market Inventory Study - 2010 Update
This study calculates gross square feet in the US and in various-sized market areas based on existing data, information and several predictive models developed by the SSA and its partners. Data was drawn from existing public company information, an existing SSA database of known facility square footage (updated quarterly), plus modeled square footage sizes for various urban, suburban and rural facilities, as well as the year of construction. Additional industry information was employed as well as analogous data from several other publicly available government and private sector database sources. A must-have publication for owners.
