The Demand for Self Storage in Montgomery County, Texas increases in the Spring

Spring is just around the corner, bringing longer days, beautiful wildflowers and the busy season for the self storage industry. There are many reasons that the demand for storage grows in the Spring, including an increase in activity in the residential real estate market, college students and teachers on the move and of course the ritual of annual spring cleaning.

Real Estate Makes a Real Impact

Spring always brings a big uptick in homes hitting the market and 2024 looks to be the same. This often results in homeowners turning to self storage as a solution when their realtor advises them to remove much of their personal belongings to stage their home. Additionally, if their home sells quickly, they may also need self storage until their new home is ready.

Because Montgomery Self Storage works on a month-to-month basis requiring no long-term contracts, our professional onsite property managers can help come up with the right solution to any storage challenge. We appreciate all of the Montgomery, Magnolia and Conroe area realtors who refer their clients to us, like DJ Arsenault, co-owner of Diamond Homes Realty.

College Students and Teachers On the Move

College Students return home in early May – often for a summer job or internship or perhaps even traveling for a semester abroad. Of course, as any parent knows, they come home with twice as much as they left with and you likely won’t have the space for all of the extra furniture and electronics. Also, teachers are often faced with packing up their classrooms for the summer. Montgomery Self Storage offers units as small as 5’ x 5’. Or if you need more room, one of the most popular sizes is a 10′ x 20′. You may find this helpful when considering how much space you need.

Spring Forward with Spring Cleaning

It seems that as the clocks spring forward for Daylight Savings Time, the longer days seem to signal our need to clean, organize and declutter our homes and garages. This often results in deciding to create more space by moving some of those “not used very often” items to storage. Haven’t started yet? No problem. Check out some of these ideas to kickstart your spring cleaning or review these additional tips.

If you already have a storage unit but plan to add more items, consider giving your unit a good spring cleaning first and possibly re-organize it to create more space.
