Radiant Barrier, Blown/Foam Insulation, Then another radiant barrier

If you sandwich these products, you will create super efficient walls- which in return will increase the value of the home. The foam insulation is also FireProof, which will decrease insurance cost. After that if you team that up with Mini Split AC Heat Pump. You will have a buyers dream.

HDMI if you are remote locating equipment, or placing up on the wall. Bad thing is, the next person may not want the tv in that location, or may not want it up on the wall. As for Internet connectivity, WiFi will work as long as you do not saturate the connection to the point of causing problems. Some sets come with the option for WiFi or wired.

The way that I have done my house, is wired network with two connections in the Living Room, two downstairs were the xbox is, one in our bedroom, with a Roku box using Wifi, two at my son's tv set, with one over by his computer. When I sell this house, all of the network wiring is getting taken out, since the next person may only use WiFi on a couple of computers, or may not want that many connections.

don't forget beer cans & small whisky bottles for your time capsule,,, we often find those in walls we have to open & marvel at how thoughtful previous generations of builders & remodelers were to make the effort to pass on whatever they thought it was they were doing

its a tradition well worth remembering & we participate - we've wall'd in cellphones, auto-rewind tape measuring devices, blue-tooth ear pieces, a dale earnhart hat, & several late afternoon energy drink containers so far - always willing to do our part

Built in speakers (or at least wiring for sound) with individual volume controls for each room that is wired.
Phone/cable in most/all rooms seems desirable for most
Skip the network cable...wireless is the future.
Central vac is a great idea. but skip the toe kicker. i had one in my last home, and with the exception of kicking it by mistake all the time, I NEVER used it. not once.
Extra outlets in rooms that might need them is always a good idea (TV room, home office, etc...)
