    Can this drywall be patched so that it looks good enough for a retail buyer? Or do I need to replace the whole wall?

    ... and use a can of aerosol wall texture to blend the patch with existing textured wall.

    If you use the aerosol stuff soak the can in warm water for a while first and it will spray much better.

    Is it smooth or textured? I can't tell from the picture. If smooth, it is a simple fix. If textured it can be more complicated to match. I don't deal with texture but I like Chris' recommendation.
