Painting over existing paint on outside house siding

If I want to repaint the wood siding on the outside of my home , can I just start painting over the existing paint or is there some other pre-paint steps I need to take?

Depends on what condition it's in.
If there no peeling paint, missing caulking, caulking then it just needs to be cleaned before painting.

Also if there is any chalk on the siding after it's cleaned you'll need to either apply an oil base primer or add Flood's EmulsaBond to the first coat of latex paint.
