Your home is your largest single investment. Recent economic events have been unkind to the value of many of our homes. The best way to recover value in a house is to finish the basement. An unfinished basement is not counted in a real estate evaluation. Simply adding a few finished rooms can literally double the square feet on a real estate listing! This can put your home into a whole new category and attract a different class of buyer. This can dramatically increase your selling price and decrease the number of days your home is on the market.
Of course there is a second and even better reason to finish your basement. For your enjoyment! Now is the perfect time to add a bedroom and a bathroom for an expanding family. Give your growing family the space they need to grow. You can also add his and hers couples retreat rooms. An arts and crafts room and a man cave could be done before you know it. The most popular selection is the addition of a family room. Keep the wide open layout of your basement for a large space to spread out and enjoy your time together.
