Why should you buy a home on a basement?  It is potential living space and can virtually be any room you want it to be.  When you purchase a home on a unfinished basement and you finish that basement space, you could recoup up to 71% of what you spend on finishing when you sell your home in the future.

Whether you are adding an media room with a wet bar, guest rooms, offices or other living areas, you are creating the  perfect living space for a growing family, or an enticement for a potential buyer. Other advantages include less expensive heating and cooling bills, make great entertainment aeas and reduce the the footprint of your home.  Add a basement to a two-story home, and you gain almost 50 percent more living space and floor area with a basement.

Finished basements are huge when you’re selling. Most buyers are excited to have a finished basement for entertainment, frequent visitors or a young family or turn your basement into an apartment. This is a nice way to add extra income and resale value.

Basements are typically storage places. Without a basement, where would you put holiday decorations, old clothes or frozen food or pantry items? With a finished (or even unfinished basement), it is possible to consolidate. Utilize shelving, closets and general organization.

The Legends at Bear Creek offer a lifestyle that is enjoyable and upscale.  The beautifully designed homes offer Arched Doorways, Coffered Ceilings, Beautiful Hardwood Flooring, Crown Molding, Judges Paneling and so much more!  If you are looking for a home featuring a Master Suite with Sitting Room, 2 Story Family Rooms, Sunrooms, Media Rooms, Lofts or so much more then check out our home plans here.   New homes range from 2000 square feet to 4000 sq. ft and basement homesites are available.
