Finding storage is a game of numbers, and one important number is that of the amount of storage facilities in your city. More facilities bring more options, so the odds of finding the perfect unit increase as the number of facilities in your area does. About how many storage facilties are serving the Homer Glen area?
There are 3 total storage facilities in Homer Glen, IL on the SelfStorage.com network. To put that into a little more perspective, that's 2 less than the average number of facilities for a city in Illinois, where cities possess an average 5 storage businesses each. It should come as litte surprise then that Homer Glen only ranks as the 57th largest storage market out of the 119 cities in Illinois, accounting for a mere 0.52% of the state's total facilities. Just as Homer Glen has a below-average number of storage facilities for a city in Illinois, the same is true on a national scale, where the city has 6 fewer facilities than the 9 that can be found in the average US city.
On the other hand, comparing the total number of storage facilities in one city to another irrespective of the number of people that live in each city makes little sense, even when we're comparing Homer Glen to other cities in Illinois. How, then, does Homer Glen with its 26,150 people compare to cities of a like size? Comparing Homer Glen to other cities in the 25,000 to 50,000 population bracket, we find that Homer Glen doesn't quite have as many self storage facilities as average.

In other words, there's not exactly a ton of extra storage space for its 26,150 inhabitants. Even for a Illinois city, Homer Glen doesn't seem to be inundated with an overabundance of self-storage space, as it only ranks in the 44th percentile for storage businesses per person among cities in the state.
