RE Terms: Bridge Loan

What is a bridge loan?

This short-term financing option can help you bridge the gap between buying a new home and selling your old one. It enables you to tap into your existing home equity before you’ve sold.

However, there are some issues to consider before you apply for a bridge loan:

👉 The interest rates and fees are usually higher than typical home loans.

👉 The equity from your current home will be used to secure the loan.

👉 The credit requirements are often greater for bridge loans than for standard financing.
