More People Investing Big Money in Panic Rooms

Real estate is combining with the prepping industry in a big way.

In rural settings, you’ll find homes with state-of-the-art underground shelters. Some of the higher-end versions include a greenhouse or gym or even a shooting range.

In the city, panic room installations are up. Way up. The number of installations has risen by 30 percent in just a single year. On the expensive end (in the $250,000 to $1.5 million range), companies will come in and completely fortify your master bedroom with bulletproof walls and a state-of-the-art security and alarm system. Or you could trim that budget down to the $20k to $50k range and have your master bathroom or closet converted to a safe room.

It’s not just shelters, either.

“Survivalist” properties and even “survivalist” communities are on the upswing as well.

There’s a definite unease about the future in our country and it shows in these real estate trends.

Fortunately, you don’t have to spend a fortune preparing. With a little planning and a little do-it-yourself labor, you can go a long way to making your property a more self-reliant place to be, so that you can better weather any disaster that might come your way.
