When thinking about your home, from either a functional or aesthetic standpoint, it's best to consider the inside and outside as entirely separate. There is very little overlap with regards to indoor renovations that affect the outside and vice versa, so when you're looking to buy, sell, or renovate, consider whether you'll get the most out of indoor or outdoor improvements.
If your main priority is to enhance curb appeal, you'll want to consider things like updating your siding, painting window frames, or redoing your roofing. From a purely aesthetic standpoint, your siding has the biggest effect on the look of your home, which makes sense considering that it covers about three quarters of the exterior. If your home is getting old, and you've still got 70's era stucco that just hasn't held its appeal, new siding can really up your homes wow factor.
From a functional standpoint, you'll want to consider having work done on your siding, windows, or roof if they're starting to cause problems. For example, siding or shingles that are starting to crack or seperate may be allowing water into the structure of your home. This can cause major issue if water starts to trickle down behind your waterproofing, causing the wood to start to deteriorate.
Your windows and frames can also cause issue if they aren't sealed properly. Aside from the aforementioned possibility of water damage, poorly sealed windows can cause drafts, making you spend more on your heating bill than would otherwise be necessary.
