Should we sand and prime patched-up holes in our walls or hire someone to do it?

We just had our 1,000-square-foot house insulated with blown-in insulation. Now we have 180 patched-up holes in our walls that need be sanded and primed before we repaint.
How difficult and time-consuming would it be to sand and prime the holes ourselves? If I estimate five minutes per hole, I get 15 hours; is that realistic?
We have one estimate for $1200. That seems like a lot for something we could theoretically do ourselves, especially when we have other upcoming projects that will require professional work.
Should we get another estimate, pay the $1200, or do it ourselves?
