Hi @webuser_239753, it's true that spending some money on repairs usually generates a higher sale price. This article is about DIY styling, however, hence the focus on that subject. Most research on property styling does actually point to the fact that staging a home for sale can add up to $50,000 to a sale price in many Australian locations.

I bought cheap towels in the 'right' colour to use in the bathrooms just for open house times, took any dirty laundry out of the house and had the outdoor eating and play areas setup as of for use. Not sure how much extra $ it created but I felt like I'd done what I could....

A very helpful article and comments were also helpful. I have a problem in that I am selling my house but I have 3 cats. It's easy to take a dog elsewhere but removing my 3 ageing cats who sleep all day could be a problem.
