Street rates remained negative on an annual basis, but experts foresee an improvement in the sector in 2024. As of December, the overall national street rate per square foot fell to $16.57, a 2.7 percent decline compared to the nationwide average recorded in December 2022. Annually, street rates for the 10×10 non-climate-controlled and climate-controlled units declined in all but one of the 31 metros tracked by Yardi Matrix, as New York registered a 0.8 percent increase for 10×10 NCC units and an uptick of 0.2 percent for 10×10 CC units.
