In 2019, Accuweather estimated a total of $22 billion worth of damages caused by storms in the US.
With hurricanes and tornadoes getting more destructive year after year, homeowners in hurricane and tornado-prone locations must think about adding a storm shelter to their property.
It Increases the Value of Your Home
It’s true, storm shelters aren’t cheap, that’s because they’re an investment. Putting your money to install a storm shelter has several perks; not only will a storm shelter keep you and your family safe, but it will also hike up your property value.
Storm shelters provide you with a net benefit by increasing the value of your property—especially in areas that are prone to hurricanes and tornadoes.
In Oklahoma, real estate agents claim that a safe room or a tornado shelter can increase the value of a house. If you take into consideration the safety benefits of a tornado shelter, along with its effect on your property value, then it’s clear to see that it pays for itself. It’s a worthy investment.
