It might be worthwhile to look at (either online or in person) some of the houses that would be the competitors to your house to see what is typically expected in the price range. I'm not saying you have to spend the money to get those things but it can affect pricing.

Over the past couple years, I have gone to several open houses in the neighborhood. It is a small house, and has the same floor plan as many of the houses in the neighborhood. Most had done a quick refurb, and didn't have any high end points.

If there are any open houses, I will check them out. There are so few houses on the market, that open houses are rare.

It is a topic to discuss with real estate agents.
