Question dehumidifier questions

I am going to purchase a dehumidifier for my basement and have a few questions. Some info first. My basement is 500 sqft. I have a RH of about 80% to 90%. I live in central Virginia. I am going to get a plug in stand up kind and want to know what size I should get. I am going to go with a basement type because the temp does get down below 65 degrees. I have a fireplace that we use in the winter that drops the RH a little, but I need something to drop the RH a little more. Any suggestions on what model, size, etc. Any information would be appreciated.

i have never sized one for a space. go to the mfr website, probably a calculator there. be sure to either run a drain or use a pump
