Gain a Competitive Edge with Bridge Loans

November 18, 2021
Bridge financing enables borrowers to access the equity in their existing home, get cash out, and use it as a down payment on the new home.

Bridge financing is a fantastic addition to your lineup of loan offerings because of the advantage your clients will get to experience in having their offer on a property accepted. Equipping your borrowers with access to the equity in their current homes will allow them to make stronger offers on a coveted new home, putting them in a better position than those waiting to sell their current homes first. Being able to make a winning offer and enjoying no monthly payments on the bridge loan* is sure to bring more clients to your business.

How is a Bridge Loan used?

Let’s break it down. A bridge loan is a short-term loan that can be used in conjunction with the loan on a new purchase property. When teaming up with LendSure, both the bridge and new purchase loan must be done with us. Through this program, the borrower can access the equity in their existing home by getting cash out to use as down payment on the new home. The bridge financing loan also pays off the existing mortgage.

Bridge Loan on Existing Property
The existing property gets listed for sale and the bridge loan gets paid off when the home gets sold. The bridge loan is a short-term one-year loan, with no monthly payments, and no prepayment penalties.* Because there are not payments, the DTI is not calculated in the existing property’s loan.

Loan to Purchase the New Property
The borrower can now make an offer on their new home by using the cash-out proceeds from the bridge loan as a down payment.  A wide variety of loan programs are also available to choose from.  For example, income from self-employed borrowers can be calculated using bank statements.

Why should I consider a bridge loan for my borrowers?

Bridge Loan can be a perfect solution for a borrower seeking to purchase properties between $150,000.00 and $1.5million, but whose cash is tied up in another property. By working with LendSure, you’ll receive guidance working through the details of each step in the process. Bridge Loans empower your borrowers to move fast on a desired property without having to first sell off another asset. It’s an effective way to stand out and be successful in a highly competitive purchase market.

How does it work?

At LendSure, prequalification for bridge loans can take as little as 24 hours, and full conditional approval is usually complete within 48-72 hours. LendSure offers quick funding times and a customer-friendly approach to Debt-to Income calculation. By providing fast solutions to clients, your business will get to enjoy a high potential for growth.
