The front yard isn't large. The grass isn't in great shape. I am not certain if we should have the grass replaced. Just before putting it on the market, we will add some annuals to the planters and parking strip to give it some color.

I can't recall what state you are located in. With a two to three month time frame, there is plenty of time to have someone aerate and then overseed the yard. If you did it yourself, it'll cost about $110 ($60 aerator rental, $50 seed). It'll look green for the showings but probably die in summer heat later. I wouldn't re-sod since that would be a lot more expensive.
