We arrange bridge loans up to 85% Loan-to-Cost

Commercial bridge loans are a short-term commercial real estate financing option that can provide temporary financing to help sustain cash flow until the Sponsor can improve, refinance, lease-up, sell, or complete a commercial real estate property.

A commercial bridge loan is a mortgage that “bridges” the gap between acquiring a property or expiration of a short-term loan and a more permanent mortgage. Borrowers often use this type of loan during the “stabilization” phase to ensure the property’s cash flow and debt obligations qualify for a permanent loan or refinance to repatriate equity. This type of financing is also known as gap funding.
