It might just be me but I think the furniture (which I might dislike) is the last thing I would look at when viewing a property, and I agree with Qebtel.
The soundness of the struture is far more important than the stuff in it

Do you have furniture already in the home?
If it was a choice between selling the house empty or hiring furniture, I would be tempted to hire furniture. Often an empty house looks smaller than what it really is, and it is sometimes hard to picture how you would use the space. In this case I would be tempted to go for a few basics just to represent space better.
If the house has furniture, but it is aged, worn etc I would just sell it as is. As many have said people do not really pay attention to the furniture as they are not buying the furniture, they are buying the house.

It really depends on your market. If it's an expensive house the cost is minimal. If it is empty I would at least gety some furniture. Buyers usually have no vision. If they can see furntiure in there they can estimate how their furniture will fit. Even if you borrow some furniture. A nice bed with a mat and a painting is better than an empty room.
People that buy renovate sell for a living always style houses. It does make a difference.But these are houses that they don't live in.

hi qebtel; I meant hiring furniture and accessories.
Having seen few homes with hired furniture; it does present the home in its full potential.
I know thats what you meant and my comment is the same. Furniture is just "dressing", it has nothing to do with the potential of a property. Potential is unique to each buyer and how they see the houses potential for their needs.
Trendy furniture and feng shui is for upscaling expensive properties where people with more money than sense are influenced by such things.
Spend the money if you wish , but you wont get a higher price.

Some dont, but plenty do I can assure you.

No offence, but I think to suggest an empty house frightens people off from buying is ridiculous. People are not that dumb that they cannot make spatial visualisations and calculations , or have to be spoon fed to every degree.

I can assure you that Not all do. And if you look a the houses for sale on the net, you 'll find a good quantity are empty.
