Unfortunately for those looking for storage in Haines City, it's a whole lot less: the average city in Florida offers 10 facilities to choose from, a whole 5 more than in Haines City. To put it into more perspective, that's only 0.31% of the facilities in Florida listed on our storage network, which places Haines City as only the 90th largest city in terms of storage business count out of all 173 cities in Florida. In addition to having few facilities compared to other cities in Florida, Haines City also offers a below-average number of storage facilities compared to other cities across the nation: 4 fewer than the national average of 9, to be precise.
But how does Haines City compare to the rest of Florida and the nation on a per capita basis? After all, not controlling for population makes most city comparisons obsolete. We ought to be comparing Haines City, with its population of 18,920, to cities of similar size. For its 10,000 to 25,000 population bracket, Haines City comes a bit under the mark in terms of number of self-storage facilities. Cities in this bracket average 6 facilities, 1 more than what can be found in Haines City. It is important to note that comparing cities of like size might not be the best measure, and that a more accurate conclusion might be had by looking at how many facilities there are for Haines City's 18,920 people--a figure which seems to have challenged our former finding that Haines City is low on storage space. Haines City ranks in the 57th percentile for self-storage facilities per capita nationwide, meaning that compared to other cities across the country, Haines City has a decent amount of storage space. And just as Haines City ranks high for storage space per capita on a national scale, it also has a large number of storage businesses for a city in Florida, placing at the 57th percentile.
In discussing facilities per capita, we also feel that we should mention the fact that Haines City's population is growing, and by a significant margin. Its population saw a 30% increase in the first decade of this century, which is 12.4% more than the 17.6% increase the whole state of Florida experienced. But though the people moving into Haines City may generate more demand for storage units, remember that the city does have a high number of storage businesses per capita, which should help balance that added demand out.
