If so, are you planning to sell for the highest price you can get, or would you rather sell for less?
You might want to look at the link below. It appears that you have a declining market.
In order to net the most profit your property needs to project the most value. Properties properly prepared for sale will have shorter market times, sell for more money, and there will be less negotiating for repairs.
One of the main reasons that homeowners hire a Realtor is to find out what needs to be done in order to accomplish the above. They know the local market and can advise what you can do to boost your value.
Pricing is also a big factor in houw your home compares with others on the market, and take into consideration how soon you want to sell your home. Do you have time to wait for the right offer, or do you want to get an offer right away?
When selling your home there are many factors to consider, and I agree, before you start to do any work to it, speak to a Realtor that you want to partner with to get your home sold. Sit down, discuss what your goal is and the best marketing plan to acheive that.

It is hard to give you an answer to this question. You really need a realtor to come see your home and do a market analysis. If other homes in your neighborhood are updated, then since they are your competition, you would either need to update or price the home to reflect the need for updates. In some cases, it does not make sense to put a lot of money into the home and in other cases it does. If I can assist with the process further, please let me know! Good luck to you.
