I’m going ahead with a partial renovation with the awareness that I probably won’t get dollar for dollar return, but because my condo has sat for a while already on the market without any offers, I feel after the partial renovation, I’ll get some. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Consider "refreshing" the listing when you are done with the renovations. You take it off the market and put it back on as "new." This will get the listing re-sent to people who may have passed on it because of it's previous condition. It would be an easier way to deal with a price change as well.

Good luck.
