Bridge loans are short-term loans that many experienced real estate investors take advantage of, but they can also be used by first-time home buyers as well as new commercial real estate investors. Because these are short-term loans, they can provide real estate buyers with a source of capital when other funds are not readily available.

How Bridge Loans Work

This type of financing is not intended to be a permanent loan. Some bridge loans require the permanent financing to already be identified before closing can occur. Most, however, have a term that may range from about six months to 18 months, although this time frame can vary. Many permanent commercial and residential real estate loans require the borrower to pay a certain amount of money as a down payment, and closing costs are also due. For buyers who do not have these funds readily available, bridge loans can cover the initial cost of purchase. The buyers will then have more time to save money for the down payment and closing costs for the permanent loan, or the buyer may sell assets or obtain funds from other sources during this period of time.

What if you didn’t have to pay the shipping costs? Wouldn’t you be that much more likely to buy the product? Of course you would! Getting free shipping is often the perfect way to nudge a customer from the “hesitant”  column over to the “happy buyer” column. And, because you’ll be selling more products, you’ll make up for the costs involved in sending it out.
