Contractor needed for purchase plus improvements mortgage

Hi, My name is Jef C. and I am a mortgage agent here in Barrie. I am working on promoting purchase plus improvements mortgages and I require a contractor that can give me a quote on making improvements to homes that are for sale. Potential buyers would then have the information they need to buy a house that needed work such as an updated kitchen or bathroom and I would offer them a "purchase plus improvements" mortgage that allowed them to finance the improvements as part of the mortgage. The lawyer just holds your money in escrow until the job is completed.

Purchase plus improvements mortgages are readily available from many lenders but are not frequently chosen because of the added time required to get a quote from a contractor to do the needed work. Since most real estate deals leave only 5 days to fulfill conditions, there just isn't time for most buyers to find a contractor and arrange to get a quote. If there were even a rough quote in place already, I think a good number of people would be interested to know that by adding as little as $20 a month to the mortgage for every $5,000 in renovations that a house can easily be transformed in to a dream home right away. I wish I had known about this many years ago, I could have saved myself a lot of aggravation!

If you would like to be on my list of contractors who would like to offer quotes on jobs in this regard, please email me. If you or someone you know needs a mortgage, I also offer generous finders fees as well as bumping referring contractors higher up on my list of people to call.

Garage erect + basement entrance covered

Roughly 18x22 garage. will need the pad + footings. 1 side entrance door, vinyl siding, insulated, fascia, sofits, 1 window (sized of a normal everyday single hung style, nothing major or fancy) gable roof, singled and gutters. Would like to get away with stick framing instead of engineered trusses. Need it big enough to fit tote bins in for added storage, say 4-5' from the middle to peak of roof.

Basement entrance will need to be covered with an entrance way. Vinyl or stucco siding will do. Build to height of the door to enter the entrance, and slopped backwards towards road.

Looking for estimates right now, and building in the near future. Just want an idea of what I would be looking at.

Main floor living space

I am looking at purchasing a home that is in need of renovations. My intention for the main floor is to move the existing kitchen and to enlarge the bathroom and entrance way. This would involve removing a wall or two and changing the plumbing. The basement is without ceiling and therefore the existing plumbing is exposed. The home has original hardwood floors that i would like to keep therefore it would mean trying to match it up as best as possible for flow throughout the main level. This is a very small post war time built home.

Quote to Build a Hut & Tower

Quote needed to build 2 Huts and 2 Towers as shown in the images attached

The site is flat and open and easy to access to get materials and vehicles etc inside for construction.

These are going to be the first structures built so fences and other projects can be built around them so im looking to get these built in the next 2 weeks but i want to get a quote locked in this week as soon as possible

The hut outside is finished with 100mm split logs and just 2x4 frame work inside and the roof is lined with some cheap treated palings around 150mm in width.

The tower uses large round posts for the main supports with 2x4 framing for the landing and sides lined with some cheap flat paling around 150mm wide like the building roof. the towers also need stairs for access to the landing.

Rear Addition on home.

I have a back room addition on my home about 15 feet by 20 feet. I would like to have it pulled down as it is very poorly done and rebuilt. But I would like to have a wood patio built on top of the new one with a door leading into the master bedroom. Bay window to replace the back main floor window thats already there, and a wet bar in the room below the deck since water runs in to the room already. I have lament flooring (enough to fill the room once its done) already.

My max amount to spend on this is 35'000. Would that be enough for a good job? It would be my first time doing somthing like this since its my first home and I dont understand all the ins and outs. But I want it done right and proffesionaly.

Also I would like to have the houses electrical redone as it is up to code but a very sloppy job done. I have about 5000 put away for that too. So all together I have about 40'000 saved for these renos. Any info at all would be helpful...All estimates welcome..Need to have some kind of idea what it will cost.
