What is a Bridge Loan?

A bridge loan is a short-term loan that is used to finance the purchase of a property until longer-term financing can be obtained. Bridge loans are typically used when a property is being purchased and before the borrower qualifies to secure permanent financing. The loan is paid back when the property is sold or when the borrower secures permanent financing. Benefits of a Commercial Bridge Loan include (1)  You can finance the purchase of a property quickly.  (2) Bridge loans are oftentimes easier to qualify for than traditional loans because they are based on the value of the property rather than your credit history.  (3) You can use the equity in your property as collateral for the loan.

    We have been researching a solution to our problem, one of our funding sources decided to pull out of our 24 unit apartment project. This was a private investor that at the last minute decided not to offer us the funding due to the current RE market conditions. So, we have been reading and researching, talking to banks and doing everything we can to understand our options and get access to the funding we need for the final phase of our very first Apartment Rehab Project that is already 90% pre-rented out.

    Our small team of 4 is new to this, so our knowledge is limited regarding funding sources and options as 100% of our money came from us and 3 investors (we just lost the biggest one). Reading articles like this are very helpful, as we are realizing there are options, but we also understand we need to only deal with someone who has experience helping projects like our and have a track record of success. We are not sure a Bridge Loan is the right choice, but we have made a decision to call Financial Compound and lay out our situation and see what kind of potential solutions they may have for us..
