Let’s talk about basements.
Love em or hate them. Some people have extreme opinions.
Buyers who will not consider a home without a basement and are just as adamant about the kind.
They want a walkout ground level, they want a walk-up, or they want no outside access.
Then some hate basements, whether it is memories, dark, damp, old, bugs, etc. Not sure. But there is a fear. I have seen buyers when touring refuse to go downstairs. Sometimes they say: I don’t need to see the basement. I’ll never go there.
Why buy a home without a basement?
No steps for easy accessibility
No concerns about moisture
Less space for clutter
Absence of natural light
Safer one level living
Less to take care of
Easy to age in place
Why buy a home with a basement?
Extra rooms for larger family
Workshop and hobby space

Do you love them or not?
