Over the course of your search you'll likely be comparing a number of facilities against one another to find the right option for you. Most would agree that the more storage businesses there are to compare, the better. After all, who doesn't like options? When it comes to the number of facilities operating in Conroe, how many options are available?
Analysts at SelfStorage.com report that there are an estimated 24 storage facilities located in the Conroe area. When compared to other cities in the state, Conroe offers a slightly-higher number of facilities, 8 more than the state average of 16 per city. In fact, Conroe's 24 facilities give it the 24th-highest count in the state out of all 179 cities. It's home to a surprising 0.84% of all facilities in Texas. Conroe also has a large number of facilities for a city on the national scale, with 15 more facilities than the national average of 9.
But making comparisons between any cities, whether it be comparing Conroe to its neighbors in Texas or on a national scale, isn't a very fruitful excercise when we ignore a city's population. So how does Conroe, with its population of 58,431, compare to cities with similar populations? Considering that cities with populations of 50,000 to 100,000 average 11 storage facilities, we feel fully confident in saying that Conroe--which offers 13 more facilities--has plenty of extra storage space for its size. One might point out that comparing Conroe to cities of a similar size doesn't prove its healthy supply of storage space for the size of the population, and that a better measure would be actually looking at its facilities per capita. Well, we have, and it has firmly corroborated our former results. Among cities nationwide, Conroe ranks in the 71st percentile for the number of storage units per capita, offering its 58,431 residents a moderately-high amount of storage space. The same goes for Conroe when we compare it to other cities in Texas: just as it achieves a high rank for per capita storage facilities versus cities nationwide, it ranks in the 69th percentile for cities in Texas.
Our discussion of facilities per capita can't be completed without mentioning Conroe's rapid population growth from 2000-2010, a period over which it took on 50.1% more people. That's a 29.5%-higher growth rate than Texas, which grew by 20.6%, saw as a whole. But even if Conroe's growth in population has caused a surge in demand, keep in mind that the city still, even after all that growth, has a good number of facilities per capita, which may balance out the population surge.
As storage prices are closely tied to local real estate prices, it makes sense that rental rates can often differ substantially even in neighboring cities. A more expansive search could help uncover some hidden storage gems. Depending on how often you'll need to access your unit, this could be the way to go. We've had our analysts go over the data on self-storage (sometimes known as public self storage or mini storage) in Conroe to see how it compares with other cities in its state.

These average prices don't necessarily tell you how affordable storage in one city is compared to another, as the cost of living changes from place to place. That's why we've developed a 'relative price' scale that takes state median income into account. In Texas, the median income is $48,902.00 a year, which would make the average $65.31 unit in Conroe cost 1.6% of a median earner's monthly income. This is a somewhat-low percentage of income to spend on storage compared to prices in other cities, ranking at the 49th percentile among cities in Texas, meaning storage here is pretty cheap.

The demand for storage being as highly seasonal as it is, moving between highs and lows throughout the year, the season you decide to book a unit during can have as much affect on the price you pay as any other factor. Storage prices generally reach their peak during the period from May to September, coinciding with moving season. Sometimes called 'National Moving Day' or 'Crazy Tuesday', the day following Memorial Day is typically the busiest for storage businesses and the highest point of the high season. College towns often see more radical seasonal swings, as their student populations drive demand on smaller units in particular up during the summer.
Self storage prices in Conroe are not nearly as affected by seasonal changes as other cities are, meaning there's a greater likelihood you'll find stable year-round prices.
