I have seen the expanded report.

While the summary that you often see in the newspapeer will often tell you this project returns xx and that project returns yy.

However, the expanded report is broken down to city and also each type of project might have several different levels or details that vary.

But I doubt that any of then are for a 1/2 bath in a basement.

So the report is meaningless to you.

So things to think about. What shape is the basement in and what is it being used for?

What kind of people are buying houses in that neighborhood. Will they need the 1/2 bath?

I would check with a couple of local realestate agents that work that area.

IN some cases you will get nothing for it, but the home is just not saleable without it.
