Our real estate agent recommended staging, while tactfully insulting our furniture.

Staging was just done, and the resulting are amazing. It wouldn't be practical for us to live in, but it is a dramatic change.

Good for you for listening to your agent. I had one listing that took about 4 months of tactfully arguing with the seller that certain things would have to be done to make the house move quickly. At settlement he apologized for fighting my suggestions and not listening right away. He lost about $25,000 that way in a declining market.
