Question What is the best basement flooring?

I am a newbie here and this is my first question here. I hope I am welcome here and I get a satisfying professional answer.

Now for the question part.

I am about to buy a house. I have found quite a few houses with a variety of basement flooring. I want to know that what is the best flooring when it comes to basements. What is the best flooring to reduce the humidity. I am looking for a flooring that lasts for a long time.

The type of floorings that I have seen are:

1. Open earth.
2. Concrete
3. Vinyl
4. Tiles (probably ceramic tiles)

Expense is not the issue. I want a long term, reliable solution.

Thank you everyone in advance for an answer/solution.

Of all the options you mentioned, dirt lasts the longest.

It's hard to provide a general answer, since we don't know what you plan to use your basement for, nor how much of an issue water/humidity is in you area (and indeed on your individual lot).
