Does Structured Wiring Improve Resale Value?
Homes built today without an upgraded wiring system will not be able to accommodate the demands of new technologies. As such, they will not retain value as strongly as those built with a solid technological infrastructure. Over time, they may not even be considered by a large percentage of future homeowners. With the rapid growth of new technologies for the home, the ever-changing working environment (telecommuting, home business, etc.), and the revolution in home education and entertainment opportunities, it is necessary to install a well-designed, structured wiring plan to keep the value of a home competitive.
