What does your current location have? Is your siding well maintained?&nbsp;Then you will want to&nbsp;look around at other homes for sale in your area and see what updates they have done. If your the last one on the block with aluminum siding&nbsp;left on the home and it has never been painted, it may be time to&nbsp;make an investment.&nbsp;Believe it or not the #1 Return On Investment (ROI) in the Cost vs. Value Analysis, Fiber Cement Siding ranked #1, with a premium insulated vinyl siding product ranking #6. With that said, there are buyers that will value the work you have done to exterior walls of the home.

No matter the type, if it is in good condition and properly maintained, should help the value of the home. If you are comparing your house to all the other houses for sale in your neighborhood that have siding, it will be a "moo" point. In that instance if your siding was in worse shape or non-existent, it would hurt the overall value of your home. I would say that all buyers should have a list of items that are their needs and wants, and siding would rank pretty low. It's like asking for a car.. and asking for seat belts... You would assume they would be provided with the car. Obviously some siding is better than others (in terms of visual aesthetics, and durability). I hope that helps.
