The Art of Finding a Hidden Gem: How Our Expert Team Sources the Perfect Fixer Upper

Are you on the hunt for the perfect fixer upper? Finding a hidden gem can be a challenge, but with the help of our expert team, you can source a property that’s ripe for renovation.

Continue reading as we share our top tips for finding the perfect Long Island fixer upper.

We Do the Searching

The first step in finding a hidden gem is to work with an experienced team that specializes in fixer uppers. They will have access to listings that may not be available to the general public and can help you identify properties that are in need of renovation. At your initial consultation with Renovation Realty, we discuss location preferences, budget, and a wish list. Then we do the work for you; beginning our expert search for your hidden gem.

Up-and-Coming Areas

Properties in up-and-coming areas may be more affordable and offer more potential for renovation. We look for areas that are experiencing gentrification or have a strong community feel.

Don’t Be Afraid of the Ugly Duckling

A fixer upper will require some work, but don’t let that scare you off. If you’re not ready to commit to major renovations, we can look for properties that require cosmetic updates rather than major structural changes. These projects will be more manageable and cost-effective.


Before we start your search, we will discuss your budget and how much you’re willing to spend on renovations. This will help us narrow down the search and ensure that you’re not overextending yourself financially. We will also provide the renovation costs upfront so you can make the best offer on the property. Having a construction expert in your corner during this phase allows you to make an informed decision.

Work With a Trusted Team of Contractors

Finally, once you’ve found the perfect fixer upper, it’s important to work with a trusted team of contractors who can help you bring your vision to life. Experienced Long Island home renovation contractors who have a proven track record of success will ensure you are in good hands.

With the right approach, finding a hidden gem doesn’t have to be a challenge.
