Texture ... Just walls? Ceiling also? Just ceiling? Do you want a spray-on texture or done the old fashion way with a trowel? What part of the country are you in (factors into labor)?

As far as electrical goes. IF:

- there is a panel in the garage AND

- you are willing to use conduit to run the outlets

Then you are probably looking at like $250-300 + materials to add a bunch of outlets. If the panel isn't convenient then things get more complicated and we can't guess what is what.

Good luck! If you would like more detailed or accurate answers please provide more info

Jefferson is right on the ballpark cost for surface conduit run outlets - where the wiring is run in round electrical conduit mounted to the wall or ceiling. For hidden wiring in the walls, probably more like $300-400 to install normal number of outlets, PLUS about $200-300 to repair the drywall holes needed to run the wire, plus $150-200 range probably to paint the repairs - more like double that to prime and paint the repairs, then repaint the entire garage if you want it to all look the same.

As for the texturing - depending on the texture you want, from $1-1.50/SF range for a spray texture to more like $2/SF for a hand-done finish like slap-down, though you will find cheaper costs from Handymen and unlicensed vendors. However, if I were you I would NOT texture a garage - major dirt catcher, and would be undesireable to most buyers.
