     *Lenders will request written quotes to be provided, detailing the work to be done, as well        as the cost

STEP 3 Meet With Mortgage Broker

Once your offer is accepted, provide the accepted offer, as well as the quotes for the work to be done to your broker. He/She will have the lender approved the mortgage with the cost of the renovations included in the mortgage.

STEP 5 Release Funds
