Is finishing a basement in an already large home an investment that will be recouped upon sale?Our house is 2600 sq ft, two stories, with an unfinished daylight basement of 1650 sq ft. If we sold within a year or two, would it be worthwhile to finish the basement? The house already has four bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. The basement is plumbed for another bath already. We would do a lot of the work ourselves and hire out the finish carpentry and electric and plumbing.January 27 2009 - Five Mile-Prairie11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
