$500.00 for one line and 3 receptacles. However, I don't want to go cheap

everything. One quote was $4,500 for the whole house, the other $6,800. It's
a 2BR/ 1 BA 1200 square foot one story house.
Is there any rule of thumb on this type of wiring regarding replacing or
does it depend on the wear and tear of the actual wiring itself ? Outside of
