Bridge Loans For Business

A bridge loan works like a short-term loan you can get for a period of 2 weeks to 3 years pending permanent financing, or to remove an existing funding obligation.

How Does A Bridge Loan Work?

Bridge loans usually bridge the gap during times when financing is needed but not yet available. How does bridge loan financing work?

Bridge loans provide immediate cash flow and usually require some form of collateral such as real estate or inventory.

Bridge loans are the best solution for immediate capitalization on a timely acquisition or business opportunity.

They allow for quick action by clients and can be used for acquisition, buy-outs, foreclosures, cash out and construction.

Both large or medium sized corporations and individuals use bridge loans.

Lenders often customize bridge loans for many different types of situations.

Bridge loans have a faster application, approval, and funding process than traditional loans.

However, the loans tend to have relatively short term, high interest rates, and large origination fees.

Who Uses Bridge Loans?

Businesses

A company doing a round of equity financing expected to close in 6 months, may opt for a bridge loan.

The bridge loan may provide working capital to cover the company payroll, rent, utilities, inventory costs, and other expenses until the closing of the equity funding round.

Real Estate Investors

If a buyer has a lag between the purchase of one property and the sale of another property, they may turn to a bridge loan.

Lenders only offer real estate bridge loans worth 80% of the combined value of the two properties.

The borrower must have significant home equity in the original property or cash savings on hand.
