I have to do a lot of work on tbe inside of this house so I am looking for minimum necessities needed to add curb appeal for resale value. Any ideas? I thought of staining or painting the brick maybe taupe, grey, or some other color since red brick looks outdated. I also considered adding a gable on porch or a minimal carport but those will be pricey. I also thought about just doing away with the odd porch roof and just have a deck. I am planning to edit the porch with paint and such. We are putting a metal roof on. Maybe large columns? I am also planning some shrubs along the front. I added a pic. Please let me know any ideas or if any of my ideas are good. Thank you!

For basic curb appeal get some fancy numbers, get a new shiny mailbox, get a new doormat, paint your porch if you have one...Your picture didn't upload so I can't see the house.. We've painted brick many times. A good flat acrylic paint should be fine. Get some new flowers in a nice flower box. Add a schrub. Basic stuff that will give a good first impression! Painting your front door should be #1 on your list. Blue colored front doors have been proven to add up to $1200 to the selling price by a prominent magazine.
