Ben Strom answered:
We are finishing a basement bathroom. Would resale be better with another full bath- with a tub/shower in the basement or a 3/4 bath -walk in shower?
Full baths are always better regardless of how many you already have and will only cost a few hundred more if you are renovating anyway - go with the full.
