Is it worth finishing a basement?

Thumbtack Editors
Answered

Finishing a basement could be worth the cost if you plan to use the space. If you’re planning on selling your home in the future, note that several past studies and reports found that there is some return on investment for basement remodels. However, how much you recoup will depend on your particular home and real estate market. It’s important to have realistic expectations for the value that a finished basement will add to your home. To find out if you should finish, remodel or refinish your basement, talk to a real estate expert and basement refinishers near you.
