Square footageIn Portland the square footage of a house seems to include the basement, wether finished or not. I notice that for my house this isnt included in the details, but wonder if it should because most of the other houses locally include this. I also realise that for other states/locations the basement square footage isnt included, so how does this artficially affect the prices in the portland area?
