Could you offer a bunker service?

Member

I had an idea for when I sell houses. I would add a plan to the total price, where if the buyer wants to, he can have his own custom bunker built on his property by his house. I think this would be a really cool idea and could help profit the company I work for. I imagine some people do that. So I figure I could jump on as well. It can't be tough to build a bunker. Get some shipping containers, make a hole big enough to match their size, maybe put it a bit lower. I think it could work and it wouldn't cost a lot more either.

I don't know, but if you're the boss of your own company you could probably do that as an option yourself. I bet some realtor companies offer such services, you just need to ask.

I have heard of sellers doing this before but not with bunkers. It would generally be with extra storage space in the form of a shed or garage expansion. Bunkers are great for areas that have issues with weather but other than that, it would be a very niche market and you would really need to up-sell it.

I think a bunker service would be very cool. Not sure if any realtors sell with bunkers or offer a bunker service. Why not be the first company to start a bunker option for your realtor company.

I can't see this being useful where I live. I don't know anyone who has ever had interest in having one. I think if you live within the boarders of tornado valley, it would likely be appealing for those folks but that would be about it in terms of natural disasters.

There are many different people who work within the real estate industry including agents, appraisers, inspectors, and salespeople. But sometimes the lines between the roles of these individuals may get a little blurred. Agents are responsible for carrying offers and counter-offers between each party, along with any queries they may have. An agent will work with another agent once an offer is accepted, guiding clients through the process of filling in paperwork. So bunker? NO!
