depends on the area, property type and price range.

Do, or have done, an honest market comparison of your home. Plan on pricing your home on the low end of comparable homes on the market to generate traffic to your home.

It may even require doing some of those updates so there aren't too many things for a new buyer to do. Too much work to be done is a turn-off to buyers, particularly in a slower market.
If you look at all of that, and your net still looks attractive to you with whatever work is required to actually get your home sold in a short time frame you should probably do it! If you don't want to price your home competitively, state it well and make it move-in ready, it probably won't sell anyway.
There are many good folks in your area who can help, but I'm not one of them!
