My boyfriend and I will be putting his Co-op in brooklyn on the market early next year. We want to sell it quickly- what are the winter projects we can take on now to help move it this spring?

We are not handy people, but we are enthusiastic! We know we can handle the interior painting, but after looking at the list of things that can help the place sell- I am not sure what is going to be possible and what is just going to turn into a bigger job for the guy we hire to fix the stuff we can't.
The bathroom needs to be re-grouted, and a hold needs to be patched into one of the walls. The patch, I think I can handle- but grouting seems a little much, amirite or am i being lazy?
There are tiny holes in the walls from screws and such- should we patch all those before we paint or does it even matter? We have tons of art on the walls- and every website says to get rid of clutter- should we take (most of) the art down, patch those holes too?
Are there other things we can do? should we do something fancy to the floors or something? Any thoughts would be great.
