Bridge the Gap with a Bridge Loan

Make your next home purchase easier by taking advantage of the equity in your current home.

A Bridge Loan* is a short-term loan, typically less than a year, that “bridges” the gap between the purchase of your new home and the sale of your current home. This can be a big advantage in today’s competitive home buying market!

Present the most attractive offer on your next home by:

Increasing your down payment or even bringing an all-cash offer to the table

Presenting an offer that isn’t contingent on selling your current home

Possibly eliminate paying Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)

Gain financial security:

Avoid liquidating or borrowing against your 401(k)

Not cross-secured by the new home purchased

A Bridge Loan is not counted against you when qualifying for a new loan financed by Melrose Bank
