Everything You Want to Know About Bridge Loans

What is a Bridge Loan?

When we speak about a bridge loan, we are generally referring to a short-term financial agreement, which will allow a buyer to purchase a property before their currently owned home is sold.  These loans have a term of 12 months or less and are taken out on owner occupied properties for refinances or purchases.

Why Would You Get a Bridge Loan?

  1. Accessing equity in one house to purchase another, bridging the gap between the sale of one home and the acquisition of another.
  2. Avoiding the hassle and cost of moving twice when purchasing a new home.  
  3. Having an offer accepted without any contingencies.  Offers with a contingency to sell your present home first are considered weak offers and are often ignored by sellers.
  4. Hard money bridge lenders look at equity, not credit worthiness.
  5. Bridge loans lenders, unlike conventional lenders, welcome short- term loans
  6. Bridge loans are exempt from the “ability to repay” rule.

Property Types for Bridge Loans

Purchases or refinances on owner occupied/primary residence properties.

Bridge Loan Requirements

There are much less requirements for a bridge loan, which make for a quick and easy solution.  The primary concern from a Lender is:
