A bridge loan is used as a short-term solution to finance real estate until permanent financing is secured.
Bridge loan payments are Interest Only (IO) and calculated with simple interest. By multiplying the loan amount and the interest rate, and dividing the result by 12 (months), you will get the monthly payment. There are no principal amortization payments during the term of the loan. Principal is repaid at maturity with a lump-sum or balloon payment.
Bridge loan interest rates range between mid 7s and high 9s (~7.5%-9.9%).

Hard Money or Hard Equity loans are based 100% on the quality of the property. Required documentation of the sponsor documentation is very light and almost inexistent. Since no financial information of the sponsor is provided, the interest rates and fees on these loans are substantially higher.

Bridge loans are designed for experienced and professional investors that need quick access to capital to execute real estate investment strategies. By providing information about the intended transaction and their financial strength, investors can access lower rates and fees.
