Should I paint my red bricks white?

I have a small 1960s brick ranch house that looks similar to most other houses on the street built during that period. I'd like to paint it white, grow ivy up the side, overhaul the landscaping and a few other things to make it more appealing from the outside. Does painted brick impact your resale value if people find it hard to maintain (chipping)? Is it actually hard to maintain? Are there other unwanted side effects? Is it something I can do myself? Thanks in advance.
