Bridge Loans are designed to ‘bridge the gap’ between selling a property and purchasing a new one. They were designed to help people move into a new house without having to sell their old one first. Bridge Loans allow a borrower to obtain cash quickly and easily, utilizing the equity in an existing property prior to the sale of the existing property as collateral for the down payment on the new property being acquired.
Bridge Loans allow you to move without having to wait months, or even years, to be able to sell your current house.
This loan is ideal for individuals who are in a rush to move because they are closing escrow on their new home, need to move due to a job relocation or have some other unexpected life event.
Second, if you are trying to buy an investment property and don’t have enough cash for the closing of the transaction, Bridge Loans are a far better option than having to find an equity partner to help you acquire a new investment property. Compared to utilizing an equity partner, Bridge Loans can increase your profits and eliminate the hassles of working with a partner.
Third, Bridge Loans are extremely flexible. There is no minimum credit score to qualify for these loans as there is with a traditional loan. You can get anywhere from 60 to 80 percent loan to value. Loan terms can range from 3 months to 2 years. During that time, you are only required to pay the interest on the loan.
Bridge Loans are used only for temporary financing as they generally require no income, asset or employment verification. Credit score and history are also not major factors in the lending criteria. Bridge Loans are funded very quickly, although in exchange for the leniency, they are typically costlier than a conventional loan.
