Hope this helps!
Nearly every listing I had last year required staging on some level. When you've worked years in this business it is fairly easy to spot what will appeal to buyers in the market. Aside from the obvious the majority of my clients agreed to do light painting, touch ups, replace fixtures, carpet, flooring, and lighting. On average my clients spent around $300 or less. Every listing received above average showings and high marks from the agents and their buyers.
When sellers understand and see their competition in the market they are more than willing to spend a few bucks to get their homes sold. My job is to try and get my clients' homes sold, not to hold housing inventory. If prospective clients are not willing to work with me to get their homes sold than it would be a waste of my time and their time to accept the listing. Good luck to you!
