Does 1960's textured celing put off buyers

I am looking to improve my property prior to putting it on the market. Should I "invest" in plastering over the heavy combed ceiling? Hub's thinks leave it, I think it looks very dated. Any views appreciated. We have agreed to abide by the answers. thanx

  • Unless it is full of cracks and falling off Leave it. A buyer will want to redecorate anyway. Better to accept a slight reduction in price if needs be and save yourself some trouble.

  • Yes it does. Textured ceilings/artexing is never going to be a buyers requirement. But it can be boarded or skimmed. This all costs money, so expect that most buyers will knock money off the asking price. It could add value to plaster over and give a fresh coat of paint to rooms, that way it would appeal to buyers. But it is a lot of work, mess and money. I don't think there's anything worse than artexed ceilings, it would put me off or I would drastically offer less.
