If you find yourself fantasizing about a separate room where you can let the kids play when the weather is raining or cold outside, or just another room for the family to enjoy, you should consider refinishing your basement. The DiMora Team are real estate experts in the Northville and Novi neighborhoods and we suggest the first thing you should do is have a pro come in and investigate any evidence of water damage in your basement. You’ll need to resolve any moisture issues before you begin remodeling. Before you design your dream basement, check the municipal code for any restrictions that may impact your project, such as the number of exits required or regulations about adding bathrooms and kitchens below the main floor of your home. Its always best to talk to a contractor to find out if there are ways to adjust your home’s current ventilation and heating configuration to efficiently heat your basement. Installing quality flooring can help with insulation too. Also, don’t skimp on the stairway. Carpeting on the stairs, bright lights and handrails make access safer and more inviting.

If you have plans for an entertainment center, consider installing sound insulation in the ceiling to help tone things down. But if you’re not sure if turning your basement into an underground oasis is worth the investment, talk to your local Realtor who’s familiar with your particular market and find out which features buyers have been looking for.
