How much value does a basement bathroom add?

If any? One-story home, 2 full baths on main level. Basement is a partial basement (~1500 sq ft), no bedrooms in basement (one room used as office but technically can't be bedroom because no egress), and is partially finished. Cost to put in a half-bath is at least 5K, if not more because need sewage pump and all that's wrapped up in that. It would be convenient to have a toilet down there for those times we're in the basement but wondering if there's any monetary value in adding a basement bathroom if there's technically no living space down there.
