Your home sounds like it wouldn't benefit from updating since a buyer will want to choose their own finishes and update to their taste. You probably won't get back all that you spend in preparing the home for market. Paint and floor refinishing is a good idea generally, but I'd want to see the house before advising you to do that work. Let me know if you'd like an opinion of value. I've sold a lot in your neighborhood and used to live there.
