Short-Term Bridge Loan
Short-Term Bridge Loan
A bridge loan is a short-term “gap” loan that allows you to purchase property while you have an existing property to sell. Some investors use bridge loans to purchase and flip properties that require little to no rehab costs.
In today’s competitive housing market, bridge loans allow buyers to make offers without a contingency. These short-term bridge loans are the perfect solution for investors looking to fill in the gaps between traditional and long-term financing.
Short-Term Bridge Loan For Investors
A Short-Term Bridge loan is often used by investors when they are unable to get traditional financing from a bank. For example, an investor may use a bridge loan to purchase a property that needs significant repairs. The investor can then make the repairs and quickly resell the property for a profit. Alternatively, the investor may refinance the property after making the repairs, using the increased value of the property to secure a more traditional loan.
These loans are typically more expensive than traditional mortgages, due to the higher risk involved for the lender. In addition, Short-Term bridge loans often come with strict lending terms, such as requiring monthly interest payments even if the property is vacant. As a result, a short-term bridge loan is not always suitable for all investors. However, for those who are able to secure financing and manage the risks involved, short-term bridge loans can be an excellent way to finance the purchase of the real estate.
