The way I see it, house is only 5 years old and is up to code in my case. The current insulation was mortgaged for 20 years might as well use it lol
It really depends on how long you plan on staying in the house. If your gone in less than 5 years, no need for extensive basement finishes because you'll never re-coup 100% of your upgrades.

The benefits of spray foam is undeniable, especially if:
- your basement is colder than your first floor
- you plan on living in your current house for a very long time
- if someone is living/sleeping in the basement
