The Basics
What is a Bridge Loan?

A bridge loan is a short-term loan used until a person or company secures permanent financing or removes an existing obligation. This type of financing allows the user to meet current obligations by providing immediate funds and/or cash flow. The loans are short term, typically 1 - 3 years, with relatively high interest rates and are usually backed by some form of collateral, such as real estate or inventory.

  • BREAKING DOWN a Bridge Loan

    Bridge loans, also known as interim financing, gap financing or swing loans, "bridge the gap" during times when permanent financing is needed but is not yet available to the borrower. Both corporations and individuals use bridge loans, and lenders can customize these loans for many different situations.

  • How Do Businesses & Real Estate Investors Use Bridge Loans?

    Businesses and real estate investors turn to bridge loans when they are waiting for long-term financing and need money to cover expenses in the interim or cash to purchase, refinance, or rehab real estate. For example, imagine a company is doing a round of equity financing expected to close in six months. It may opt to use a bridge loan to provide working capital to cover its payroll, rent, utilities, inventory costs and other expenses until the round of funding goes through. For example, a real estate investor may have a commercial building that is only 50-60% leased up and the current net operating income does not support the debt service coverage ratio required by lenders offering permanent financing. The investor may use a bridge loan during the lease-up period, then refinance into a permanent loan or sell the property.
