Home Inspectors in WNY - Home Inspection Company

Amherst Home Inspector

Are you buying a home in Buffalo or Western New York and want to understand the true condition of the home before your contingency period lapses?  Maybe you’re in the process of selling your home and want to gain an advantage by having a pre-purchase inspection completed so that you can make any needed repairs before buyers have a chance to find them. 

Alto Home Inspection, LLC is a home inspection company based in Buffalo’s Southtowns, that professionally inspects houses, investment properties and patio homes in all of Western New York, including Erie, Cattaraugus, Wyoming, Genesee and Niagara counties.  

Buffalo is the center of the appropriately-named Buffalo-Niagara Region, which consists of the 8 western-most counties in New York state.  The region is located within 500 miles of 40% of the United States population, and is a busy international border area with Canada.  The population of Erie and Niagara counties alone was over 1,100,000 as of the 2010 US census.

Large and smaller business call Western NY home, with health insurance, healthcare, and financial services companies forming a large sector of employment in Buffalo.

Amid the ongoing fight against COVID-19, the housing market in Western New York state is suffering from a serious shortage of for-sale homes.  According to the Buffalo Niagara Association of Realtors, inventory of homes as of July, 2020 was down 38% since  year prior, resulting in bidding wars and difficulty in buying houses for many. We expect that once confidence is restored in the economy the housing market will begin to normalize.

Emma H.2/23/2020

We hired Brad at Alto Home Inspection to inspect the house we are buying. It's our first home so we had no idea what to expect or what is "normal." Brad was very responsive and was able to come out to do the inspection within a couple days of us calling. He answered all of our questions thoroughly and sent us the report very soon after the inspection. We liked the format of the report he uses; it's easy to read and understand. We felt that we could trust Brad's expertise and knowledge, and would recommend him to anyone seeking an inspector.

I would highly recommend Alto. Brad was professional, took his time, and answered all of my questions/ concerns. The inspection report I received was very detailed and nicely laid out. Thanks Brad!

I contacted Brad at Alto Home Inspection for a last-minute inspection, and he was able to make time in his schedule to accommodate the narrow timeframe. Not only was he immensely thorough during the inspection, but he spent the entire time explaining what he was discovering in a way that helped me understand what I could expect if I purchased the home.On top of being a complete professional, he was always a joy to interact with, and the appointment ended with me feeling like someone who strongly cared about my home-buying process had just shared their expertise.I cannot recommend him highly enough and am confident that anyone working with him will have the same stellar experience that I did.
