In my market (Central Louisiana) I often work with investors who flip houses. And this is a constant issue...How much work do we do prior to listing. I can tell you buyers, especially entry level ones, don't have very good imaginations.
If you have the funds, my vote would be to do the repairs and fresh it up. Talk to a local REALTOR though as every market is unique. All the best!
Neutral colors in all of the rooms is the best return on your money. Every other renovation will just depend on how much those upgrades are going to cost you vs. what you are going to receive in resale. The best thing to do is call me for a free evaluation of your current homes condition.

That really does depend on the repairs needed. You definitely want to pesent the house with all FHA required repairs done. You may not want to totally renovate your house, as you may not see your investment back from expensive renovations. But, there is about a 60% chance that the prospective new buyers will obtain FHA financing and some repairs would be required before they can finance the house, and, buyers, for the most part, do not make repairs before they actually own the house.
If you plan on listing your property for sale with a local Realtor then that Realtor should be more than willing to go to your house and look at which repairs would be required and which repairs will pay off.
I have been a full time Realtor in the Metairie area for 22 years and would love to be that Realtor.
