Home Buying in York>Question Details

Hello, Home Owner in York County, PA

If these new home builders offer free finished basements, how is anyone going to sell their house to build a new one?

Asked by Hello, York County, PA Sun Sep 23, 2012

Since the used homes with unfinished basements will be in foreclosure and the finished basements can flood at any time, prices of homes will only continue to drop to nothing. Finished basements should never be used as finished square feet. Quality built homes where homeowner prefers not to finish basement can not use the basement which results in sales comparison to smaller homes that are not quality built. Where does the depreciation stop?

Remember, there is no such thing as a free lunch. Ryan Homes offers free finished basements and normally about $10,000 in closing help. It is all a marketing ploy. Nothing is free and if you look at the fine print, the finished part only results in a small space, not the entire level.
