i bought a slab but i really wanted a basement but could get what i wanted with the price i could spend.
some are empty, some not. The power is still on at every house I've looked at. All of them have had working sump pumps but the basements are still damp and/or have some standing water. They've all had mold on the walls too so it's probably not just one bad season.
