Is it Worthwhile to Finish Your Basement?

Consider these 6 Potential Uses...

Thanks to RE/MAX Canada for these thoughts.

When finishing your basement it’s easy to get lost on Pinterest or flipping through a home decor magazine when looking for inspiration. It’s in your best interest to take a step back and really think about what finishing your basement would do for you. Here are six reasons you may want to say yes to a basement renovation. ⬇️

✔️ A Second Income: 

Finish the basement and rent it out! This helps with affording property in the city that might otherwise be too expensive.

✔️ An Extra Bedroom:

Whether it's for kids when they come home from university, a live-in nanny, or extra space to host guests, it’s a definite bonus!

✔️ Create a Separate Entrance: 

Having more entrances will make the basement more private. You won’t have to go through the main living area to access it.

✔️ More Recreational Space: 

Kids playtime or movie time might disrupt the main living space. Placing this all downstairs will keep your main rooms less hectic.

✔️ Need for a Home Office: 

Separate your living space from your working space.

✔️ Extra livable space 

More living space typically equates to an increase in property value!
