The DREADED "Popcorn" texured ceiling ....also [not so affectionately] known as the "cottage cheese" ceiling. While this type of textured ceiling is quite common here in the Northeast, it seems to be hated by most.
Conventional wisdom dictates that since todays buyers seem to detest this particular architectual feature (if we can call it that) we as stagers should be advising our sellers to remove it. I'm taking a survey, so please tell me DO YOU AGREE with this advice? This assumes the ceiling is otherwise clean and in good repair.

Having done it more than once, I know what it takes to remove a popcorn textured ceiling. It's not a terribly diffiucult or expensive job (if you do it yourself) but it is extremely messy messy and time-consuming.
Agents: Please tell me what your buyers are saying about popcorn texured ceilings. Are they THAT much of a turn-off to YOUR buyers??
Agents & Stagers: Please tell me, have you had any success convincing sellers to remove them? (Peronsally, I have not). I look forward to and will greatly appreciate your feedback!
