Getting water in my basement

Harding Rd in Essexville
Purchased house November 2018. Homeowners claimed they never had water in basement. November 2019 water started to come in along 2 walls. Both walls are drywalled, therefore I’m not sure where exactly the water is coming in. Also, along those 2 walls there’s cement on the exterior. Obviously with this storm, water is coming in more than normal.

W CENTER RD in Essexville
I have a hunting cabin located approx. 7 miles south of Tawas City. It has a crawl space that is regularly wet. There is no insulation in the floor, so in the winter the floor always seems cold. We are now retired and spend a lot more time there now in the winter. We have a mini split Mitsubishi heating cooling systems to heat when we are gone so the pipes don't freeze. Would be nice not to have to try and heat an uninsulated floor.

leak in corner of basement. I'm looking into pressurized crack injection. This is a very isolated leak, the rest of the basement is dry, and this is not a major leak but we do not want it getting worse.
