Will a shelter add value to my home?

Answer:

This question comes up a lot and the answer is two-fold. Yes, in most instances (assuming you are in an area that is prone to tornadoes) an appraiser will give additional credit for a shelter. The second answer is that in comparing two comparable homes, one with a shelter will generally sell quicker than one without, making your house more marketable.
