American real estate is booming once more thanks to the popularity of bomb shelters – underground dwellings that serve the purpose of providing shelter and protect when the apocalypse comes.
It seems like a pretty solid investment, right? After all, the possibility of a terror attack or even a world war leading to an apocalyptic scenario isn’t really far-fetched nowadays. Surely, anybody with enough sense would find this a worthy investment.
So, why haven’t all the families in America gotten one? Well, for one, these luxury bomb shelters do come with a hefty price tag. See, the most basic underground shelters cost around $54,000.
Still, protection from a possible nuclear attack involves more than just basic necessities, especially if families actually have to stay in these underground dwellings for more than a single year. For more complex shelters, the price tag could read as high as $10 million.
“Budget and imagination are the only limits,” says Brad Roberson, marketing director of the Rising S Company, one of the institutions offering the development of such facilities.
“You can have all your major amenities: TV, high power and high voltage (appliances)… horticulture rooms where you can grow vegetables and gardens, a full shower, all the amenities of your full home,” he explained.
To give you a glimpse of one of the company’s biggest contracts so far, they gave a sneak peek of an $8 million development they built in Colorado. The 15,000- sq. ft. does not only contain basic rooms and amenities, but also features elevators and ramps perfect for its contractor, a PWD.
The space is also big enough to park two airplanes. Since the owner has a large extended family, 22 rooms and a fully-functional gym were also customized for his use.
‘People are awakening to the threat,’ said Sharon Packer, co-owner of yet another service offering the building of bomb shelters, Utah Shelter Systems ‘A lot of it is the terrorist attacks, a lot of it is the economy. People are concerned about having a government failure. Some of it is Earth changes.’
