Honestly, if you're worried about the other high-end people with their nice houses, don't be. Metal roofs have so many pros compared to other expensive materials for roofs. You also said you have a green metal roof. Does it match anything else on your house? Sometimes to create a better curb appeal, you could paint the front door or sides of windows on the front of your house to make a cohesive matching house. Your neighbors would be jealous of your cute green accented house without costing your a fortune to replace the whole roof. I'd also recommend to get the metal roof inspected as well!
First impressions are always important, but if the seller doesn't want to invest in it, you can't force anything. Beyond that, if there is a landscaping allowance, people will have a chance to hire a company they like and design things the way they want. Ultimately it won't matter that much what you do. If you have trouble selling though, you might want to change your strategy a bit.
It's important to match your neighbors, but I'd consider repaving with asphalt as well. It sounds like concrete isn't the best option for your slope of driveway and the climate. If you do use asphalt, though, you'll probably still need to repair or remove the concrete underneath. http://www.bonnessinc.com/content.php?l=59... more
This would undoubtedly increase the curb appeal if you get a new garage door. One thing you have to keep in mind, however, is to make sure the new garage door's colors and design is cohesive with the design and color of your house. Matching the style of your new garage door is essential if you want to get the most returns for the value with curb appeal. A good choice would basically make you extra money with the increased value of the home.

Painting is probably your best option unless it is out of control and paint won't do enough to restore the fence. In that case you'd probably want to replace it. I don't think it is a good idea to take the entire fence though. Fences generally add some sort of value to the property. Taking it down would diminish that. http://coyle-and-sons.com/commercial-products-jacksonville/jacksonville-fencing.html... more
I also am looking for some ways to take control of my weed problem. Every spring I have a pretty bad problem with crab grass. It's really annoying, but I guess it's part of life. I haven't tried weed & feed before. Maybe that will work. http://www.headmanlawncare.com/Lawn_Services.html... more
That's a huge tree! It's not going to be cheap, but it will probably raise your property values to have something like that removed. I'd call around a few difference companies and have them give you estimates. Then you can decide who to go with from there. http://www.brandywinetree.net/... more
It sort of depends on your personal taste. There are a lot of window styles that will appeal to some people and other buyers, that won't appeal to others. You just should do what will make you happy. Then hope that the buyers for your home will like them as well. http://www.misterwindowanddoor.com/Storm_Protection_Products_Services_Palmetto_FL.html... more
