Is it worth doing repairs and upgrades before you sell?

Short answer is yes. The most important thing to understand is the return on the work you want to do. Most repairs should be done before listing; giving a credit is not the best way to maximize your return. Some cosmetic upgrades are well worth it; add granite, LVP flooring, fresh paint. You don’t have to spend a lot on these items, especially if you do them yourself. These improvements will, however, impress a buyer and help them feel that the home is move-in ready. If a home is in need of repairs and simple upgrades then it will likely sit longer and get less than the asking price.
