The inside of the Tangled clothes are not that pretty

It's an addition on the back of the house. The basement is a dug basement. No rooms down there.

Honestly OP, the house would either have to be a steal, as in wayyyy under market price, or you would have to do a lot of work.
Total remodels of bathrooms and kitchens are very expensive. It's an older house that has had relatively little maintenance.
Lots of maintenance just not upgrades because we wanted to keep that old feel of the house. Older is an understatement.
First, in order to make up for the half painted exterior, the interior would need to be pristine.
Minimally I think you should paint. That one room is very dark. It's a small room and that dark color closes it in more. The bedroom that is shown should be painted, too, and the wallpaper removed. Pick light, neutral paint colors that make the smaller rooms look larger. Clean out the clutter and the tchotchkes. Put a door on that closet.
[COLOR="rgb(255, 0, 255)"]no wallpaper in the house, all paint and that room will be painted as soon as I can open the windows. I already have the paint, it's a cream color.[/COLOR]
If you have nice hardwoods, pull up those carpets and refinish the floors.
[COLOR="rgb(255, 0, 255)"]Def not refinishing the floors. I would cost too much. I have wide pine floors, original to the house. Carpets are all removable, nothing glued or tacked down in any way. If you are looking at a house this age, you hope that you have untouched wide pine floors in New England. Most people up here sand them down and leave them alone, no finish.[/COLOR]
I don't even know what to tell you about the kitchen and bathrooms. Kitchens sell houses. If you watch any of the HGTV shows it's all about the kitchen.
[COLOR="rgb(255, 0, 255)"]Wish we could upgrade kitchen but not happening either. But, it has a wonderful easy footprint so someone else could do wonders.[/COLOR]
Improve the curb appeal. Finish the painting. Clean up the yard. Add some landscaping.

The housing market is terrible. You either need to have something very special to offer, or a very cheap price.
My Realtor thinks it will sell fast. I am on the lower end of the market with just under an acre of fully usable land. We are staying just above what we owe on our mortgage and it is the location that will sell the house first. I am less than 5 minutes to skiing and a 10 mile lake. I live in a big resort town and lots of house go over the $1 million mark. I am under $200k.

Straighten your pictures. Maybe it is the OCD in me, but seeing pictures hanging at skewed angles takes the focus off the room. Better yet, take them all down.
Put a nice vase of flowers on the coffee table to warm things up when you take the "official" pictures. Put a couple of pretty pillows on the couches. It is very brown, so looks a bit bland.
Take some of the personal stuff off the walls, such as the butterflies on the closet door. It is distracting.
Other than that, I can't see any major issues that would turn me off.
butterflies are off the door. and that closet cannot have a door on it but it does have a curtain.
