I always find it interesting when I see a home quote a square footage that clearly includes the basement. True square footage is above ground level, and the value of a basement can be anywhere from 50-80% less per square foot than the upper levels. Trying to include basement square footage is attempt at “upping” the perceived value by attaching it to the true square footage.

At least if someone is going to do that, it’s always good to be clear – perhaps something like this: Total living space 2,000 square feet (620 in basement).

Unit 301 at Bristol on Main is competing against a top floor unit with higher ceilings at the same price (Unit 412 at 1390… just checked, still available!). And if you’re looking for a slightly larger condo, Costigan is offering a top floor larger unit but I’ll show you why I can’t STAND the layout.

There’s a tie for Pick of The Day. Miltonbrook has quality finishes and a huge “double deep” lot, and Wrigglesworth has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and backs on to greenspace for less than $750k. We talk about bad photos all the time, but a bad photo is better than NO PHOTO of one of your best features.
