What's the best value? Finished basement or using the $ towards upgrades?In my new home purchase, there is an incentive towards a free finished basement. Should I use the finished basement value, $17,000, towards upgrades instead of the finished basement? The basement would include a half bath and adds approximately 1150 sq feet to my 2600 sq foot home.
