Homes with basements for sale Sonoma County

According to home design website Spruce, having a full basement in a home has many, sometimes overlooked, benefits. In California, basements are somewhat rare and finding a house with one can have advantages. Here are the top three reasons a house with a basement is a good choice:

Storage: Even if a basement isn’t fully finished, it can be used for extra storage. This leaves room in the garage for cars and lets that priceless porcelain set sit undisturbed for as long as you want.
