Ready to sell homes with bunkers? You’d better be- bunker sales up 1000%

On a serious note

The world is on fire. Not literally, but Japan’s earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis along with uprisings across the Middle East, economic disaster and global warming have some people believing the world is in serious trouble and they should protect themselves and their families. Guns can’t protect anyone from a nuclear disaster or attack, so some are hedging their bets by investing in bunkers.

On a less serious note

Really? Are Realtors prepared to know all there is to know about a bunker when they sell a home with an underground living system? According to a recent report says in the US, sales of bunkers rise up to 1000%. The video above is from famed company Vivos who is building an entire network of bunkers deep underground in Nebraska who post-Japan has seen applications skyrocket 1000% despite their hefty price tag and $5,000 minimum deposit. They will not be sold to individual houses, rather in a connected network, but this points to a trend that hasn’t spiked since the Cold War era.

    I’ve gotta say i think this is pretty amusing. I mean, yes, of course bunker sales are up because virtually no normal people have gone bunker-shopping since 1960-something.

    Isn’t the whole point of an all-encompassing apocalyptic disaster that you can’t prepare and you can’t prevent it? We in NorCal are totally primed for a little earthquake/tsunami/nuclear meltdown of our own, but we’re not letting it mess with our Zen.

    Kinda scary! On the fun side, me thinks some male heads of household have invented this idea as a way to enjoy their “luxury bunker man cave”, whilst offering family protection. Time to assess the BOMB designation.
