Unless the seller was doing a FSBO, this is a rhetorical question. And, you don't need to post it repeated in every zip code. That's just spam.

Sal, you only get 1 shot to make a 1st impression, painting is something I would not recommend.
If there is drywall behind the paneling then remove it. Prime and Paint combo will provide you with a fresh look and please remember to use neutral earthy colors to keep it simple.

She put an inflated amount on the MLS. When I saw it, I called her. She argued with me that her numbers were right. I told her I had my bill in my hand and she still disagreed with me!

Late to open houses. Agent was nice to hold 2 open houses one weekend. Had a man come to the first day who was very interested and bringing his parents the next day.
