Costs For A Bridge Loan


Apartment Listing  

Many people take bridge loans for financing their new homes even though the old home is not yet sold. As such, bridge loans are handy for people looking for a transitional financing option.

However, it is pertinent for these people to ask themselves whether the cost of a bridge loan is worth it.There are instances of many people taking bridge loans only to find themselves in the soup and unable to pay the bridge loan. The reasons for this are the fact that bridge loans are a stop gap arrangement and hence the nature of the loan makes it possible for the lenders to set arbitrary conditions. Right from the time and tenor of repayment of the loan to the interest rates that are set at higher levels than normal loans, the bridge loans can cause problems for the borrowers because of the hidden costs. Hence, it is advisable to read the fine print carefully before you go in for a bridge loan.

For instance, if you take a bridge loan for $70,000 and the mortgage that is unpaid on your old home is around $50,000, the actual amount that is available for you would be around $16,000 after excluding all the fees and the commissions and the administrative costs that go with making a bridge loan possible. This means that you would be left with very little on how to make the payment for the new house. The fact that the bridge loan is used for the lien on the old house makes all the difference here.
