Zillow Digs home in Newport Coast, CA
With price per square foot on the rise, many homeowners are opting to stay put but stretch their living space by turning their basements into recreational retreats. The trend in 2018 will focus on upscale renovations with a luxury feel. Small home theaters (seating for eight or fewer), wet bars, and open entertainment areas are good bets, but skip the wine cellar if you want to draw in potential buyers. Well-designed basement upgrades offer a 70 percent return on your investment.
