Is water actually seepin in through the foundation? Or is it just damp?

We used dry lok masonry waterproofer.  It was a lengthy process, but definitely helped keep the water out.  We had to do it in the summer when it wasn’t so wet.  It took 2 coats, and some areas 3.

I would hire a home inspector to find out what the problem is before starting to fix it.

It could be that the drainage tiles around the perimeter of the house have been crushed or are clogged up.

Does your house have drain tile?  We did not have drain tile when we moved into our house, and a month after moving in our basement flooded.  The water was coming up from the foundation and through the basement walls (that had waterproof paint).  We had drain tile installed once we got our flooding basement resolved, there has not been any water problems since.
