At this point I have no idea what typical means in terms of sellers or markets.

What is a typical market? 

I can tell you that my typical seller is a representative of an estate. It is a wide range. Some will invest if they have the funds - most don't.

Haven't come across a typical amount yet. A lot or a little is as close as it gets.

Typical is an elusive term in the current market. Most of the sellers in our community have homes that really look good.

For several years, it has been very rewarding for sellers to invest in upgrades to make their home shine as if new in order to get top dollar. Cost was typically returned on at least a $2 for $1 basis. Time was whatever it took to get it done but still reasonably quickly. 

Yet...we are not in a typical market and have not been in a typical market for several years. Whatever that is...

typical sellers just don't exist in this market.  I find some willing to do everything, some will do what they feel brings the best return, some will do nada.  But they are all still selling.

In my slice of Florida paradise, demand has sustained for over 10 years.
Typical, here, means, 'red-hot' and if you are not ready to fight, go home.
House #1. To be listed Thursday. Seller has been improving for over a year and bust'n ass for the past week. Prom Queen will sell quickly
House #2. Estate home. Been worked on slowly for 2.5 years, tricked out cosmetically, old mechanics. Will be listed in 2 weeks. Pretty and will sell in 2 weeks.
House #3. The ugly duckling. Must be 'de-hoarded' packed and broom cleaned. VERY desirable location. Will sell in 60 days to an investor. Today's home buyer who cries about the housing shortage is unwilling to invest in sweat equity. The sellers desires an occupant buyer from the local workforce.
House #4. The lightly used SFH purchased 3 years ago located in the pucker-brush. No action needed will sell in 2 days.

DOes that help?

While all sellers want the same thing; and escrow that suits their timeframes and top dollar, non are created equal when it comes to investing time and money up front to get top dollar later.

I will share as a seller in 2021, I invested $8,000 up front on all my inspections, curb appeal, repairs and staging that earned me an extra $105,000 on my asking price. Well worth the extra 2 weeks and $8,000 wouldn't you say?

Not sure that I can quantify either...  But the ones who truly invest time and money to get their home properly prepared for the market ARE getting a LOT of buyer attention... and great offers.

Like an operation (sound of monitors beeping in background) what's the procedure is taken case by case. If the property is priced realistically and marketed full throttle, your seller can get top dollar Peter Mohylsky. Broker -BRIX REALTY .

Some want top dollar and do nothing to a house that is sorely needing updating while others make their properties shine! In this market, I find that nothing is typical...

All todays seller has to do to make money is to decide to sell. In some cases, we are talking monster equities. House prices have tripled and quadrupled.

It really depends on the seller, some spend big bucks, others just want to get it done.

Most sellers are willing to do and pay for the necessary updates/repairs to get their home  'show ready' for market. But that's been true for many years as I know the ROI will be higher.  If I didn't think that, I'd say so.  Sell it out right to an investor or as-is and sometimes that's a better route for some in their situation.

That is too broad of a question, each home, each Seller and each  market is different.

Don't have an average $ amount as each house has  been different. Most houses have to do something to sparkle in the market.
