Re: Property value of hobbiest's homes
I do work for real estate agents helping to get higher end houses ready for sale ($500K - $3million houses). The biggest thing that they emphasize is that the person walking through needs to be able to visualize their belongings there, and everything needs to be clean and very proper looking. With that being said, I think if the basement isnt finished to begin with and as long as the area is clean it wouldnt impact the sale if someone wanted the house. I would just make sure if you were to list the house, ask for an hour or two warning before allowing anyone to walk through and make a sweep through the entire frog area to clean up any bugs/spiders as that could detour many people, and maybe mention in the listing that the shelving in the basement could be left as is or removed per buyers request.
