Finishing The Basement . . . High Impact With Low Cost

As a Realtor®, I have seen all types, quality and sizes of finished basements. 

Overall, the cost of the improvements are rarely returned when the owner sells the home.  Typically a $25,000-$30,000 finished basement will bring back in the market about $10,000-$15,000. 

My recommendation has always been that it is best to buy a home with a finished basement, rather than finishing it yourself.

How can the cost/depreciation equation be mitigated or made about equal?
