More difficult to resell? Predictions regarding the future are difficult.
Here is what you do know.
1. Prices in communities under construction are controlled by the builder.
2. When the last house is built everyone's values have the opportunity to increase.
3. A like kind house valued 20% above community values will be difficult to sell. (Unless it possess extraordinary attributes. A basement is not a extraordinary attribute)
In five to eight years, what will be the values in your community. A project a basement with ground lever entry will prove to be a distinguishing asset and compel value a the top of the community range with all else being equal.
I would have to look at the entire subdivision and area to best answer your question.
I have been selling new construction for 15 years full time in Gwinnett.

You really needed to have a Realtor representing you. The builder would have paid their commission and you would have had free legal and market advice at your finger tips! Here is a link to read a new construction blog that I wrote concerning new construction buyers: http://amiebozeman.com/blog.php?view=item&id=4674. I think the blog may have helped you during your decision making process.
