In our area, most home have basements and they are expected, especially in a year round primary home. Secondary residences, cottages, etc. do fine without basements.
The one caveat to this is when a newer primary home is built with heated floors - i.e. hydronically heated slab. These can be energy efficient and so nice on cold winter days. Warm feet!
If the home is priced right and is one you really want, and the basement is no big deal, and there are similar homes that have sold with no trouble in the area you're considering, go for it!
