Typically this will depend on whether the basement area that is finished is considered legal living space by your local city or county building department, and whether or not the proper permits were obtained and "finalled".... more
Yes. Operative words are finished, walk-out, comparable quality to rest of the house. I have a listing in Lower Easton with a finished walk-out basement and the town card shows 2402 sq. ft. as the base rate for the first floor (it's a Ranch) and an additional 1068 sq. ft. for the Basement with rec room, 2 bedrooms and full bath.

Hope this helps, but check your local area . If looking to buy in Fairfield County CT, please give me a call.
I've had similar problems. If we don't monitor our expiration date in Trulia, they disappear. Emily has been helpful; hopefully she'll pitch in here. The other option is to go to the help button and tell them what you want or call them. Best of luck.... more
