For you it's not important. But somewhere down the line if you resell it may be the underlying factor to some clients. Good Luck.

I wouldn't be. Only downside for most my clients is they can't add one later. May hurt resale a little, but not too much. I show a lot of properties in Conshy/Lafayette Hill. Reach out to me if you would like to tap my expertise.

Although your concern is valid, the lack of basement could affect your resale prospects. However, if other aspects of the property can compensate for lack of basement, then it may not be of as much concern. Good Hunting!
