Altadena model homeYears ago, basements were known for being dark and dingy areas, an unfinished space where only the water heater would sit. Today’s basements are looking more like the first floor of a home, adding the extra living space we need while increasing the value of the home. At Altadena Ridge, we have a selection of inventory homes with basements available, giving buyers even more opportunities to customize their homes. Here are just a few advantages of having a basement within your new home:

  • Storage – When properly utilized, a basement can add much-needed storage space to your home. If this is an area the buyer chooses not to finish, it can still be the perfect place for storing unused items.
  • Safe room – Basements are one of the best places to take shelter when a tornado hits.
  • More usable space – Basements tend to be cooler, which can be a perfect escape for the Alabama heat. Buyers have the option to pre-pay for a finished basement. Transform this room into a family room, home office, man cave, or guest room with a bathroom.
