Try searching on trulia, I believe they allow you to specifically search for properties with basements and whether or not the basement is finished. Basements aren't as common in those areas as they are in say Collingswood, Westmont, etc. but they do exist.

Basement are not as common in Mt. Laurel because of high water table. Some neighborhoods have some house with basement. It really depends on the lot of the house so don't go by just the neighborhood.

The water table is on the high side so older homes usually won't have them. With better, modern construction materials available now, the new homes have a better chance of having a basement.

Yes, in Mount Laurel, Ramblewood Farms, Ramblewood, Penn Oak, and Mill Run Developments all have basements on most models. In Marlton the Willow Ridge development off Marlton Parkway near the Promendade also has basements as did the development right next to it.

These are just off the top of my head. We were searching for houses in these two towns and quite frankly most houses in these areas had beasement. It wasn't hard to find a house with a basement.

I was house hunting in Marlton about 3 years ago. I would guess that about 50% of the houses had basements. I can tell you that King's Grant in Marlton does not except for a couple.

Yes there is a high water table there, and even if you do find a house with a basement you want to check it thorougly. And you will need a sump pump and a french drain to be sure you wont have a problem.
