Simple cable wiring:

“I recently bought an apartment in DC. The cable wire within my walls went bad somehow and I need to get a new one run. I don’t want to use the current wiring because it’s in a poor location and runs through many walls. The building line outside my door works just fine. I just need to push it through the wall above my door, down, and out the other side. Can I do this myself or do I need a contractor to come in? I don’t have experience doing anything like this. I got a quote for $440 by an electrician (no patching or painting) which seems a bit much for such a simple job. Any recommendations?”
