I have done some research and lectured home owner subdivision on adding value to there properties and I have found that it only takes 7 second for a person to form an opinion on if they want to see more of the property by just seeing the front of the home. In all that in mind I would patch and reseal a driveway if it was needed, but I wouldn't stop there. The whole front yard would need to look good. Put yourself in a buyers seat and you drove up to a house and the driveway looked old and cracked and the yard was full of weeds ( I am not saying yours is) and there wasn't any color and the bushes wasn't trimmed what would you think? I would also drive around and see what your neighbors are doing to see what your competition is up too. If you are about to list your home, you are about to sell a product on the shelf for everybody to see. Now you need to see who has the best product for the money. The bottom line if you think the driveway needs it do it and clean up the yard trim the trees and bushes and put a little splash of color in with your landscape beds to make the whole thing pop.
This very much depends on the condition of the driveway now. Many times just patching and resealing is all you need to look great. From and Inspectors point of view I can tell you that how a home looks when I drive up goes a long way as to how comfortable I feel about the homes overall condition. Don't forget also that you don't want to give buyers reasons NOT to buy your home. I have found however, that many people dont worry too much about something that is usable and that can be corrected over the long run...but that first impression lives in your sub-conscience for a long time. So resale value not so much. Sellability much more. (Just my opinion :)
