While average prices will give you a good idea of how much you should expect to spend, they don't necessarily tell us if storage is relatively affordable in that city. We use our 'relative price' scale to calculate the relative affordability of storage in a given area using the state median income. Given that the average price of a storage unit in Rohnert Park is $106 and the median income in California is $54,681.00 a year, we can determine that a storage unit would require 2.33% of a median earner's monthly paycheck. This is a relatively-large percentage of income compared to other cities in California, ranking in at the 74th percentile statewide. We have to conlude from this that storage in Rohnert Park is somewhat expensive.

Successfully booking the storage unit you're looking for will have much to do with the number of self storage businesses in your city, as the more facilities there are the more options you'll have available. When it comes to the number of facilities operating in Rohnert Park, how many options are available?
According to our estimates, there are approximately 6 storage businesses operating facilities in Rohnert Park. In California, the average city is home to 9 storage businesses, a whole 3 more than what's offered in Rohnert Park, meaning you'll have fewer options in Rohnert Park than you might elsewhere in the state. It should come as litte surprise then that Rohnert Park only ranks as the 116th largest storage market out of the 253 cities in California, accounting for a mere 0.28% of the state's total facilities. Just as it has few facilities relative to other cities in its state, Rohnert Park also has a meager number of self-storage facilities compared to other cities nationwide, 3 less than the national average of 9.
If we're making comparisons between cities, however, we're missing out on some important insights if we don't factor population in, even if we're simply comparing Rohnert Park to the rest of California. How, then, does Rohnert Park with its 40,921 people compare to cities of a like size? Cities of similar size, as it turns out, offer more storage space than Rohnert Park does. The average number of facilities for a city in the 25,000 to 50,000 population bracket is 7, which is 1 more than can be found in Rohnert Park. But then again, such a population bracket covers a wide range of cities. A more accurate measure would be Rohnert Park's per capita facility count--a measure which has substantiated our former results, showing Rohnert Park to indeed have little storage for its size. Rohnert Park's 6 self-storage facilities for its 40,921 residents ranks it in the 38th percentile for storage facilities per capita among cities across the country. That low rank means that there isn't as much storage space for each person in Rohnert Park as there is in most other cities. But when we compare Rohnert Park to other cities in California, we get a different story. Among these Rohnert Park ranks in the 66th percentile, meaning that it actually has a high amount of storage space for cities in California.
Lastly, with regards to facilities per capita, we feel it worth mentioning that Rohnert Park saw its total population fall by 1% over the first ten years of this century. The rest of California, however, did quite the opposite, taking on 10% more people in that same time period. Combine the fact that fewer people are moving to Rohnert Park relative to the rest of its state with the high number of storage facilities per capita and you get the recipe for a high supply, low demand storage market, making it a great place to search for and find a storage unit.
Scoring a good monthly price on your self storage unit has a lot to do with the time of year you book it, as prices vacillate from season to season. The period between April and September is typically considered the high season for storage, while prices are lower the rest of the year, notably through October and March. National Moving Day (the day following Memorial Day) is typically seen as the first real day of the high season and is often the busiest day of the year for storage facilities. In addition to families moving between homes, college students renting storage for the summer also contribute to demand during the high season, particularly in college towns.
