It should help with the price but maybe not as much are you spend to put it in. What it would do is make it much more marketable to the buyers that are looking for a high tech home. Good luck with it!

Depends on where the home is. In giga power cities typically, these customers are everywhere and if your home is not pre-wired for 10Gbase T most buyers will pass. Very important to wire home for a central Media hub where optical cable can be run through a squirrel tube to outside "slack nid" placed near power company. Make your cat6e runs to where you might want to connect addition wired wireless access points. Great idea to make cat6a runs to each room near media devices, but at least 1 run to every floor, two runs to office, and one to outside. Kitchens and baths are important too, but good internet is very difficult do redo and if it's done right the first time you home will maintain value through 2030

I would say it might....by the amount the system cost you. But your buyer would have to value that update.

10 gbps may be appealing to a limited amount of buyers. Updating bathrooms and kitchens but also adding space (extra room, shop) adds value that most buyers are looking for.

Having said that...the basic inclusion of an in-home network is still valuable. Wireless networking has really taken off howeber and this has caused the wired network to be less important with most buyers.

Only to a very limited, select number of buyers that need it. Generally speaking you want to make improvements to your home that appeal to the broadest audience possible which is why kitchen & bathroom remodels lead the way with regards to improving a homes value. An upgrade that includes bigger bandwidth may add value from your perspective, but not with most homebuyers.
