Typically the square footage does not include the basement. Also I will note that in a split level or multi level situation any square footage below grade is typically not included. In Lancaster county if you review the Assessor's record of the property (can view online) you will see the amount of square footage that is above grade.

Hello Trixie,
Usually the square footage listed does not include the basement particularly if it is not finished. However; sometimes if the basement is finished then the listing agents do include it and are supposed to disclose that the basement is included in the total square footage.
Hope that clarifies.
