allBecause I’m self-employed my bank was not willing to help me because of my income tax arrears.  Jesse helped me to refinance my home to pay off high interest credit cards, a loan and 2 years of income tax arrears. I’m saving over $750 per month for the next 5 year. I’m very thankful for his services and I’m referring to him anyone who is looking for a mortgage.

In Canada, a construction draw mortgage is a popular financing option for builders and developers. This type of mortgage loan releases funds to the borrower at different stages of the construction process.

Typically, a construction draw mortgage is divided into three draws:

  1. First Draw (Weather Tight): This draw is given when the construction reaches the "weather-tight" stage, which means the building has a roof, windows, and exterior doors that can keep out the weather. The borrower can use this draw to pay for the completion of the exterior of the home, such as the foundation, framing, roofing, and exterior finishes.
  2. Second Draw (Sheetrock Ready): The second draw is issued when the construction reaches the "sheetrock ready" stage, meaning the interior walls are ready for drywall installation. This draw is meant to cover the costs associated with completing the interior of the home, such as insulation, electrical work, plumbing, and drywall.
  3. Final Draw (98% or 100% Complete): The final draw is given when the construction project is either 98% or 100% complete, depending on the lender's policies. This draw is intended to cover the remaining costs of the project, such as landscaping, paving, and final finishes.

During the construction period, the borrower pays interest only on the funds that have been drawn from the construction draw mortgage, not on the entire loan amount. However, the interest rate for a construction draw mortgage is generally higher than for a standard mortgage loan due to the higher risk associated with construction projects. The lender may also conduct inspections of the construction site to ensure that the work has been completed before releasing each draw.
