Homes for Sale in North Dallas with Storm Shelters

Twister on countrysideWe often field phone calls from people relocating to the North Dallas area looking for homes with basements. While some are relocating from areas with basements, many are concerned about tornados. While there are a few older homes with basements, there are also homes that have a storm cellar or shelter. These are primarily found in the rural areas, but we do see them in the suburban and urban areas as well.

According to CBS News the odds of a strong tornado hitting your home directly are extremely small. You can expect it to happen about once in every 8,000 years.

Storm shelters can be added to any home. Some are installed below ground and others are steel boxes that are engineered to withstand large tornados. We checked with a few local installers and found that prices start at about $7500 and go up depending upon the size of the shelter and how it will be installed on the property.

Lakewood Estates in Coppell Texas

Lakewood Estates in Coppell, TX

I was out working in Lakewood Estates in Coppell, Texas this morning. It was early in the day and the temperatures had not yet climbed out of the 80’s. I was early for my appointment so I sat on a bench in the park next to the lake.

As I sipped my Starbucks coffee, I watch as the ducks paddled around the lake and a couple of large turtles sunned themselves on the dam. I was not alone as people sat on their back patios doing the same.

Coppell TX is a bedroom community located on northwest of Dallas. Coppell offers nice homes, abundant shopping and dining, and easy access to many of the major highways including 635, 35E, and 121.
