Declutter and if that means hiring a dumpster or someone to cart away old furnishings, do it.
Freshen paint if the front door or steps have worn paint and freshen trim paint if you have painted woodwork and it looks dingy or dinged.If you have very dark trim, ask your realtor if painted white would enhance the style of your home. On the cape, natural may be the way to go.
Replacing counters, tile, colors are best to get advice from someone who looks at the style of your home and whether it it best suited to vacationers or someone who would purchase for year round.
Anything on the exterior look for products that work best for seaside communities.Go see what new construction builders are using for products.
Every situation is different.
An experienced real estate professional should be able to give direction as to what is necessary, what is optional, and what is not important.

J.Aaron also gave you some good advise, as that will give you a bench market as to your value.
Also get 3 price cma's from the top agents in your market.
Price it lower than the lowest cma you get. It should then create an urgency from the knowledgeable buyers and you will get the highest price in the market in a short time.
Either your home is for sale or you want to just test the market. Price it and sell it.

Best of Luck!
