Countertops and resale value

The previous owner of my house installed marble countertops in the kitchen unfortunately at some point someone sat on the top and cracked it where it was floating over the dishwasher.. at least that’s my guess bc it’s cracked all the way up the backsplash and both sides of the sink. I have looked at getting it repaired but it is impossible at this point. It’s located at the sink and water has gotten into it. I repaired it enough so it won’t fall apart but I feel like I really have no choice but to replace it. Do you agree this is one upgrade I must take care of? There are other things I would like to spend this money on but the cracked top is a turn off to me. I was considering quartz or granite and got quotes for both. I am assuming it’s worth the extra $600 for quartz? Also has anyone ever installed butcher block? If so do you think it will appeal to less buyers as quartz or granite? Thanks for the insight.

side note I didn’t notice the crack until the day of inspection and at that point I felt it was too late to bring it up besides the market was so crazy if I fought her too much on it she could’ve just went with one of the other 15 offers.
