How much do you think the crack detracts form the resale value? is it enough to warrant the fix if I decide to go that route?
If you're comfortable enough replacing the back yourself, it's absolute worth replacing it before you sell it. However, it doesn't detract enough from the resale value to justify paying someone else to fix it, so if it's not something you can do yourself or one of your friends can do, I'd say leave it be.
