A certain segment of the population likes to be prepared for the worst, and for many doomsday scenarios, decommissioned underground nuclear missile silos are the ultimate hideout.
Despite this, there are government-constructed nuke-proof bunkers, some of the strongest structures made by man, that have lingered on the market without selling, and their prices have been slashed.
Interested in more? This website has numerous others listed for sale as well. Truth be told, some of these sale-priced bunkers are fixer-uppers. But on the plus side, once all the basics are set up and supplies are stockpiled, if you ever do need to escape disaster, there will be plenty of time to work on home improvements in your bunker.
For the negotiable price of $399,000, you can also buy an Atlas F missile base in Central Kansas (like the one illustrated above) on eBay. “Negotiable” is not to say owner Jeff Flaningam will sell at clearance-rack prices. There are currently four declined offers on the listing, but Flaningam indicated he may consider a partial trade of a yacht plus cash.
Let’s take a look at Flaningam’s decommissioned Atlas F silo.
