The cost of storage units varies widely across Washington and is dependent on an array of factors, including the area’s cost of living, how many storage facilities are available and how great the demand is for storage units. The cost of real estate is an especially significant factor; the higher the property values are, the more renters can expect to pay for storage. Additionally, in cities like Seattle where about half of properties are occupied by renters, the demand for storage solutions tends to be greater, resulting in higher costs.
In Seattle, the overall cost of living is about 72% higher than the national average and over 50% higher than the statewide average. This is primarily due to the high cost of real estate, which is roughly triple the national average and twice the statewide average. The price of storage reflects this high cost of living, with units typically costing between $69 and $265 per month, depending on their size, location and features.
|Average cost of storage units in Seattle, WA compared to state and national averages|
|Size of Storage Unit||City Average||State Average||National Average|
While the size of the unit is an important factor to consider when selecting a storage solution in Seattle, renters should consider additional factors such as the level of security provided and whether the unit’s temperature and humidity levels are controlled.
In spite of its dreary reputation, Seattle has a relatively pleasant year-round climate with mild temperatures and low humidity levels. Even so, climate-controlled storage units that maintain consistent temperatures throughout the year are necessary, especially if sensitive items like musical instruments, antiques or fine art are being stored. Security measures like surveillance cameras and high-security locks are also highly recommended in the Seattle region, where property crime is rated 76.9 out of 100, which is considerably higher than the national average of 35.4.
The seaport city of Seattle is an exciting place with a wealth of amenities for residents to enjoy. The city is most recognized for its thriving arts community, diversity and natural resources. Among its most popular points of interest is the Space Needle, where visitors can enjoy a 360-degree view of the city via an all-glass floor-to-ceiling room. The city is also known for its dynamic culinary scene with farm-to-table restaurants, unique donut shops and many coffee shops.
While the overall cost of living, particularly real estate, is high in Seattle, this fast-growing city offers plenty of affordable living options for budget-minded home buyers. Neighborhoods like Magnolia, Bryant and North Admiral provide relatively economical options with easy access to city amenities. The city boasts several transit options, and the average commuter travels about 28 minutes to work, leaving plenty of time to enjoy this city’s attractions.
