I agree it depends on the market. And the numbers.

Many buyers do want to move in soon. They do not have time for renovations first.

Some renovations can be done in a few weeks. Others can take months to schedule.

They tell you fresh paint and carpeting (or floors) are the big sellers.

Some things you mention are inexpensive. Old shower replacement is probably $2K or less.

Keep an eye on your budget. Try to pick wisely.
