What is a bridge loan?
The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "Bridge Loan"
Let's say you're ready to move, you've found a home you want to buy, but you still haven't sold your current residence. A bridge loan provides in-between financing in these situations. Your old home is used as collateral to close on the new one. Bridge loans are short-term -- typically running for six months.
A bridge loan helps you bridge the gap if you need to buy your next home while you're still hanging on to the last one.
