It depends where you are in the process and what your goals are. In my opinion, you should go through your manuscript several times before even sharing it with betas. After you've shared with some betas, review their recommendations and apply what you agree with. If you think it's really pretty tight, and if you're looking to go the traditional route, I think you can probably send it out to appropriate agents.
The comment that the manuscript will go through editors if it's sold is true. But before it's sold, it needs to hook an agent. And an agent isn't likely to agree to take you on if the manuscript is a mess.
If you decide to go the self-pub route, I definitely would recommend you hire an editor. But that's after you've done the multi-self-review and beta process.
