OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - In the past two weeks, storm shelters in Oklahoma have meant the difference between life or death for some people.
But as real estate professionals attest, the value of a storm shelter can make a difference when selling a home.
Joe Pryor, president of the Oklahoma Association of Realtors, says "It will improve the value and salability of your home."
According to the county assessor's office records, there are 14,817 registered storm shelters in Oklahoma County. This may sound like a large number, but compared to the approximate 250,000 residential properties in the county, that is only 6 percent of homes, The Journal Record reports.
