My cousin and I are disagreeing that we should paint the exterior brick of our investment property. We actually live in this property currently, have remodeled the first floor and plan on selling it to a family or young professional. It is a nice house and is in a quaint, friendly, family oriented neighborhood just south of Cincinnati. My brick is yellow, but by no means is it ugly, it is just yellow. The brick is in great shape. We have access to good prices in exterior paint because my uncle owns a painting company, but I wanted to get some professional advice as to if we should really do this or not. I'd rather not spend over $500 in material, spend a week painting the house, and then not gaining any immediate benefit from the house. I'd imagine we can get our money back in appraisal value, but no other house in my neighborhood is painted. Is it worth it?
