One thing, though. Selling a house is not about what you want or like. Been there and done that.
Follow the general opinion, even wall coloring. May be boring to you (btw, my choices bored everybody else), but consensus is usually right. Even homedepot "decorating" ideas may be better than yours.

As long as you impress the female half of the buyers, they usually have the final say

Best advice ive seen on here was ask the real estate agents.. you did that already and got a mix.

Worst advice was to hang drywall over order to do that, you have to purchase drywall...$$$ have to hang ceilings yourself unless you have a lift or a friend...BACK then have to do a great job finishing it yourself...bad mistake for a DIY. Ive never seen a DIY do the quality of a pro when it comes to drywall finishing..

I could remove the popcorn in a house just as fast by myself depending on the height, than re hanging and doing a quality finish job.

The problem you encountered with the real estate agents this....sometimes it's better to just leave it alone and let the new homeowner deal with it. Popcorn isn't always a deal breaker for a house. But Kitchen and bath are...Id focus the energy on a remodel for a kitchen and bath. Since I am a texture guy and I know popcorn is out and knockdown is currently in, i would give it that fresh look, but I also had the proper equipment to do it right. I do know a bad ceiling job can certainly deter a potential buyer, but one left alone as is, if the condition is good, will not cause them to look for more flaws like a bad remodel job would. Ive seen my share of walkthroughs gone bad once a homeowner looks up at the ceiling. next thing you know they look at everything else as close as they possibly can. Stuff that you can't even see unless you get right up onto the 2 cents.
