Will a finished basement add value.I know this could be a wide open question. But I have to ask because I do not have a walkout basement or bulkhead. Just access from the entry way in my house. And I have read that in some places you can not consider it finished sq footage unless you have a walkout basement. So i'm concerned that if it doesn't count it will not add value. I currently have a 3 bed, 1bath ranch with 5 acres that was valued at $140k in 2008. I recently had it on the market and both real estate co that I courted did their analysis and suggested I list it for $140k. I will be adding a bedroom, living room, and full bath in the basement. I also could add value by remodeling my kitchen and bath...or all three. I'm looking to add $40k in value to my home.January 11 2011 - Sangerville00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
