All of the items are listed on the City of Belleville website.
I'd be happy to give you a free market analysis and to point out items that I know that the city will look for (no obligation to list your home with me)
What you are discribing sound like cosmetic things and not actual code violations. Cracking walls can be caused by earthquakes or settling, it is a crack in the drywall and not hard to repair. Paint is also cosmetic, all you need to do is sand the area until smooth, prime and paint. If you are worried about other, more significant issues, I would recommend you hire a home inspector or contractor to look over your home and advise you on anything that should be addressed before sale.

Cracked walls? I'm not really sure, but I would try to have walls repaired depending how bad the cracks are, because you cannot have peeling paint, so if peeling then repaint those walls after correcting the cracks.
