Lance King-Founder/Broker answered:
Does it make sense to furnish a vacant home before you put it up for sale?

Who pays for the marketing budget when selling a property?
The listing broker is expected to market the property including the price of photos and flyers. An owner can be expected to pay for staging and needed upgrades.
