Are you wondering is it worth it getting a bridge loan?

Have you found the home of your dreams but your funds are tied up in your current property?

When trying to buy the home of your dreams the process can be stressful. It can become even more hectic if the current home you have has not sold. If your current home has equity, a bridge loan could make the process of buying your dream home a bit smother. The application process for a bridge loan is a faster process but also can be a bit risky and more expensive.


We work with the absolute best to procure the top rates and scenarios around.


Bridge loans are available for numerous types of property such as:

  • Residential
  • Owner occupied or investment (non owner occupied)
  • Single-family, multi-family, apartment buildings
  • Commercial
  • Industrial

Is it worth it getting a bridge loan?

A bridge loan is an amazing tool for a scenario where your trying to purchase a new home and your funds are tied up in your departing residence as it ‘bridges the gap’, providing you with the funds needed to complete the purchase of the new home. Once the transaction is completed on your departing residence you can then use the proceeds to repay the bridge.

Are bridge loans a good investment?

Bridge loans are beneficial to a real estate investor that requires fast and convenient access to funds. These types of loans are a short-term financing option and investors who take out these loans are willing to accept the high interest rates that come with these programs. Investors knowing that these loans are short-term financing have a plan and assets to pay it off. They are an excellent type of loan for real estate investing.
