Woo Hoo...Now that is a wired house...

I spent maybe $400 on the cable, and probably more on all the terminating hardware. Not only was it incredibly useful while I was living in the house, it probably added $5K or more to the selling price. Of course, the buyer was a geek programmer that AOL was transferring into town. He wanted the wiring. His wife wanted the kitchen (with new Silestone counters we had installed a year before). Full price offer about $20K more than most of the realtors we interviewed said we should list at....
