You may have heard of these loans, but may not know what they are. Are they loans to build a bridge? Well, maybe, but not in the sense we are going to talk about.
A bridge loan works nicely if you need the proceeds from the sale of your current home to purchase a new home. In essence, the bridge loan gives you an advance of the proceeds from the sale of your home to purchase the new home. It is a temporary loan to help you purchase a new property without selling your current property. You typically need a lot of equity in your current home for the loan to work.
The bridge loan lends on both your current home and the home you are purchasing, so it is a cross-collateral loan (meaning it is secured by both properties). Once you sell your current home, the bridge loan is paid off by the proceeds of the sale.
