How much of a price difference would a finished vs. unfinished basement make when I go to sell?

We are thinking of finishing our basement but don't know if the money we would put in to it would be worth it. The house now is a 3br 1&1/2 bath. We would finish the basement (which is the same square footage of the house.) and put in another bedroom and bath along with storage and an alternate living room. Is it worth the headache?

Is it worth it?  The dollar return is likely to be considerably less than the dollars you spend on the project.    If you wish to finish the basement for your own personal use and enjoyment for a number of years, do so, but don't do it as an investment.
