Bridge Loan

Transition to Your New Home

The process of moving to a new home can be both exciting and stressful. Between selling your current place, purchasing a new one, and eventually hauling your possessions from one to the other - there's a lot to consider. That's where a Bridge Loan from Plains Commerce Bank comes in handy.

A Bridge Loan is a type of mortgage loan that lets you borrow against the equity of your current home to cover the down payment of a new home you'd like to purchase, bridging the "gap" between them.



Benefits of Bridge Loans

The great thing is, you don't need to sell your current home before taking out a Bridge Loan, which benefits you as a buyer and a seller:

As a buyer, the Bridge Loan gets you the necessary funds to close on your new home faster and with fewer contingencies.

As a seller, the Bridge Loan affords you more time to prepare your current home for the market, ensuring you sell for all its worth.

And last but certainly not least, the Bridge Loan reduces the stress of moving for you and your family, allowing for a more gradual transition to your new place.

If you're considering selling your current home to purchase a new one, and you've built up some equity over the years, a Bridge Loan could help significantly simplify your next move.
