Some people don’t view a basement as critically as others, but most knowledgeable buyers consider the basement space to be an additional asset. Minor problems are many times overlooked but major flaws can mean the difference between a good offer and no offer at all! A basement that is musty smelling, shows signs of water or has a damp feeling to it can be a major deterrent. Since the basement and the foundation give support to the rest of the home, this is an area that often receives a critical eye from home buyers and inspectors.
