Does Waterproofing Paint Work?

Would the application of a "waterproofing" paint be worth it before finishing my basement?

I want to ensure that my new home (built in 2013) has a dry basement for many, many years. It is currently dry and already has all the right exterior features: Sloping yard, no landscaping around the perimeter, great gutters and drainage, just as you have described on your show. So before I have the basement finished, would it be worth applying a "waterproofing" paint to the poured-concrete walls?
