Bridge loans can be ideal for clients needing access to fast financing. A popular video game, “Need for Speed,” features go-fast cars that cost more than the average automobile. Bridge loans for homebuyers are similar in concept. They cost more than traditional financing, but sometimes it’s worth paying a premium for speed. In addition, bridge loans can solve problems for homebuyers, mortgage brokers and Realtors. They can provide financing exactly when and where it is needed, without the complexities and time required to close on a conventional loan.
