Very easy to apply - I had my conditional approval within hours of submitting my request. It was very clear what needed to be provided to get unconditional approval, and I knew when I inspected the property that if I needed to make an offer, I was well-placed to do so.

The Bridgit Bridging Loan explained

If you’re considering moving to a new home but don’t have the funds to buy a new property yet because you haven’t sold, a bridging loan might just be for you. People look to move into a new home for all sorts of reasons; you may be a retiree wanting to downsize into a more manageable space, or maybe you have a growing family that can benefit from a larger house to accommodate everyone. With all these scenarios, Bridgit can help!

The usual route is to sell the existing property first to fund the new purchase. But often, this leaves people with little to no time to find a new home, making the process stressful. They might even spend a considerable amount of money on temporary storage or living before moving into their new space. Bridging loans can help eliminate such problems by allowing homeowners to buy their next property without selling their existing home immediately. Instead, with a bridge loan, they can tap into their property equity to fund their new home, allowing them to find the perfect home first and the flexibility to adapt to the change in their lives. 

Looking for the fastest and most flexible bridging loans in Australia? Bridgit is the answer. We offer an unbeatable bridging loan where you can borrow anywhere from $300,000 to $3,000,000. We have a fantastic Australia-based customer support team who can assist you with applying for bridge finance as well as provide you with information regarding what a bridging loan is, advice on how to buy a house when you haven't sold yours, or address questions like ‘is bridging loan a good idea?’  

When selecting bridge loan alternatives among the different bridging loan providers, it’s best to be as knowledgeable as possible about bridging loans first.

How does bridging finance work?

As the name suggests, a bridge loan ‘bridges’ the gap in your financial situation, allowing you to take your time and not rush searching for your next dream house. With a bridging home loan, you can borrow against your existing property equity to purchase your new home, and once your existing property is sold, the proceeds from the sale will be used to pay off your bridging loan.  

Bridgit offers a six-month loan period for bridging loans with an initial interest-free period, meaning that you need to sell your existing property within six months to settle or pay back your loan with us.

If you’ve downsized, there’s a good chance there won’t be a remaining balance after the sale of your property so we can immediately release security over all your properties. As for cases of upsizing properties, it’s possible to still have a remaining loan balance after the property sale. We will partially discharge your bridging loan and release the security of the property sold. The outstanding balance will then be refinanced with another lender who can provide you with a longer mortgage term.

How long does a bridging loan take?

Many traditional lenders are stuck with slow manual processes, so the approval of your bridge loan could take anywhere from a few weeks to months. Bridge loans for real estate can be quite complex, so for these traditional lenders who don’t have a streamlined or tech-based process, it can take longer to release your funds.

Bridgit makes applications for bridging loans more convenient as we have built our own custom technology to improve lending processes and deliver the best experience for our customers. You can complete the online loan application within five to ten minutes. We also offer approval within 24 hours and settlement in as little as a few days is possible as well. Taking a loan from Bridgit is fast and easy, enabling you to cut through the red tape and progress in your life.

What are the bridging loan requirements?

If you’ve been asking, ‘can I get a bridging loan to buy a house with Bridgit’, the answer is yes, you definitely can! Bridgit lends to all sorts of people, whether you are self-employed, retired, or a standard income earner. The requirements to apply for a Bridgit loan depend on your unique situation:

For PAYG income earners:
· Six months of continuous employment
· Proof of two months’ pay

For retirees with income:
· Pension and super income

For retirees with no income:
· No income verification required
· Pension and super income may be reviewed

For self-employed:
· Tax returns for two years (full doc)
· Accountant declaration (alt doc)

For a full list of the documents needed to complete your loan application, reach out to our friendly customer service team.

Bridgit offers flexible, fast, and secure bridging loans to help fund the purchase of your next property. We offer an attractive bridging loan interest rate where you receive the first month of your loan period interest-free. We don’t charge early exit fees or any monthly repayments, just a simple set-up fee which can go for as low as 0.99% and is added to your total loan amount which is repaid once you have sold.
