KREALTY REAL ESTATE REPORT BASEMENT FINISHING Should you spend the money to finish your basement? Here are common issues to think about before deciding to finish your basement. Creating walkable spaces and having good drainage is important. Keep ceilings eight feet or higher to ensure comfortable headroom. Seal all foundation cracks. French drains or a sump pump may be necessary to keep your basement dry. Fully finished basements don't instantly double the value of your home. Above grade space is still more valuable than below grade. Improve the basement but don't over improve. Know what you will do down there. Do you need an office, extra bathroom, in-law suite, a sports bar, a personal gym, a craft room, or a play room. Now is a good time to do it.
