Meet BOOST: A New Form of Bridge Financing for Homebuyers

February 21, 2024
Revolutionizing bridge financing for homebuyers in a competitive market. Stand out and win bids with LendSure's unique loan solution.

With U.S. home prices continuing to rise, market trends are enriching sellers, but frustrating homebuyers.

At the same time, the number of homes for sale is declining quickly — forcing buyers into a dreaded bidding war.

While it is a challenging time for buyers, these market trends create ideal conditions for a niche product known as bridge financing. LendSure has revolutionized this product to create a one-of-a-kind loan solution that can help buyers stand out and give them a greater chance at winning the bid.

With BOOST (Bridge Option Offering Seamless Transition), borrowers can tap into the equity of their current home to make a non-contingent offer, making them look more financially appealing to sellers. Instead of waiting for the sale of their current home to close, buyers can use BOOST to move quickly.

How is a BOOST Bridge Loan used?

A bridge loan is a short-term loan that is paired with the purchase mortgage on the buyer’s next property. Through this program, the borrower taps the equity in their existing home by getting cash out to use as a down payment on the new home. The BOOST loan pays off the existing mortgage, so no monthly payments are required for 12 months for owner occupied properties and 6 months for non-owner occupied properties or until the property sells (whichever is first), giving your clients additional time to sell their departure residence and maximize the potential sales price.

This product is crucial in a competitive seller’s market, especially since most homes stay on the market for less than a month, according to NAR reports. That means buyers who can move quickly to gain an important advantage.


Current/Departure Property
Current Market Value $800,000
Loan to Value 75%
Bridge Loan Amount $600,000
Outstanding Mortgage Paid Off $200,000
Cash Out for Down Payment $400,000

New Purchase Property
Purchase Price $1,500,000
Cash from Bridge Loan $400,000
Cash from Liquid Assets $200,000
Loan Amount $900,000

How Does BOOST Work?

The borrower’s current property is listed for sale, and when the sale closes, the bridge loan balance is paid off. The BOOST loan has up to 12 months term for owner occupied properties and up to 6 months for non-owner occupied properties, with no monthly payments, and no prepayment penalties. Because there are no payments, no debt-to-income (DTI) ratio is calculated on the existing property loan.

The borrower can then make an offer on their new home by using the cash-out proceeds from the bridge loan as a down payment. Additionally, borrowers can pair BOOST with a wide variety of non-QM solutions that LendSure has available to choose from. For example, income from self-employed borrowers can be calculated using bank statements or Profit & Loss statements.

Why should I consider BOOST for my borrowers?

BOOST can be an ideal solution for a borrower seeking to purchase properties between $150,000 and $2 million – but whose cash is tied up in another property.

This type of loan product empowers your borrowers to move fast on a desired property without waiting to close on the sale of their current home. It’s a compelling way for offers to stand out and be successful in today’s intensely competitive purchase market.

Why Partner with LendSure?

LendSure’s BOOST program allows home sellers to tap their equity so they can become buyers today – not when their home sells weeks or months from now. In contrast to other bidders, who must wait to sell their current homes first, a buyer with a BOOST loan has a real competitive advantage. And with our solution, not only will they look like a cash buyer, but they’ll also benefit from no monthly payments on the bridge loan for up to 12 for owner occupied properties and up to 6 months for non-owner occupied properties  or until the property sells.

At LendSure, prequalification for BOOST 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 enjoy high growth potential.

The borrower makes a one-time repayment due at the end of the loan term or when the property sells, with interest accruing during the life of the loan. Other restrictions and limitations may apply. Granting of loan is subject to the credit and policy requirements of LendSure Mortgage Corp.
