A Florida bridge
loan is an immediate, short-term loan, one to sixty months,
usually made in anticipation of intermediate or long-term financing.
Pay back the bridge when permanent financing is in place with
no prepayment penalties .
Florida Bridge loans
"bridges" two different types of cash gaps. The first
"bridge" is a loan that institutional banks refuse to
approve. The second "bridge" is for the individual investor
or company who is between deals and requires immediate, short-term
funding until a traditional loan is issued.
BRIDGE LOAN LENDERS
Bridge lenders only use private capital. "Loan Committees"
are comprised of one or more principals. This creates an efficient
and expeditious decision-making atmosphere that enable lenders
to quickly perform their due diligence and fund loans as quickly
as in seven business days.
An owner of a $2,600,000 office building in excellent condition,
with a good positive cash flow, needs $800,000 to pay the IRS
within 15 days. He is willing to sell this property for $800,000
down to pay off the IRS. The prospective buyer is property rich
but cash poor, and cannot raise this amount of cash within this
time period through conventional means. To take advantage of this
very narrow window of investment opportunity, the buyer obtains
the $800,000 bridge loan within 10 days to quickly secure property
title. The buyer then paid back the $850,000 within 30 days with
no prepayment penalties when loans from conventional sources came
