Yes, it is "saleable". You should disclose the fact and provide your records. Good luck.

Yes, I have sold many homes with aluminum wiring and several of my past rent houses have had aluminum wiring. Once addressed by a licensed electrician the inspector will only note that the home has aluminum wiring but will make no requirements.

Hello Dorothy,

The simple answer is YES, a home with aluminum wiring is saleable. Keep your repair records and disclose any prior repairs, past and current defects if any, on the property condition disclsure.

Dorothy-
Just because a home has aluminum wiring does not make it non-saleable. But, if it has been altered (most commonly known as 'pig tailed') it should is best to had been performed by a licensed electrician. Aluminum wiring is acceptable wiring, it just requires some additional maintenance. A good electrician or home inspector could go into details about that.

Hope this helps!
