Selling a home and buying a home at the same time can be tricky. Bridge loans are a great option for qualified loan applicants that may want to use the equity in their existing home for the downpayment of their new home before closing on the sale of their current residence. Typically these loans are available for 6- to 12-month terms and are fully secured by the current property. As with most short-term notes, interest-only payments are required during the repayment period of these loans.
