How to Buy and Sell a House With an Arizona Bridge Loan

When you are needing to move, buying a new home while selling your existing home can be a stressful and complicated process.  A Short term Arizona bridge loan can be a valuable took to ensure you are able to buy the home you want and sell yours more easily.

 When you buy your first home, you probably don’t think too much about the timing other than issues like no one wants to move in the summer or when your lease is up at your current rental. However, once you are looking to upgrade from your starter home to something larger, timing become essential. Most buyers need to use funds from their current home to fund the down payment on their new home. In an ideal world, you would be able to close on your home in the morning and close on your new home the afternoon of the same day. This sounds ideal but it rarely happens. Due to market conditions and the stress of showing a home, trying to sell and buy at the same time can seem almost impossible.

You may find yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place. Although you can qualify for both home loans, you can’t produce a down payment for the new home without selling your existing home. Your home may not be getting any offers because a lived in home does not show as well as a vacant or staged home, but you need somewhere to live until you can purchase a new home. An Arizona Bridge loan is a specialized type of short term loan that can help.

Arizona Bridge loans are short term loans meant to help bridge the gap between selling your home and buying a new property. A bridge loan is a short term loan that you can get in addition to a home mortgage to cover the down payment. You will make payments on the bridge loan until you sell your first property and can pay the loan back in full. The bridge loan is contingent on the equity in the home that you are selling. An Arizona Bridge Loan has low debt to income ratios and no set amount of paperwork for closing. Rather than being based on a FICO score or income number, bridge loans are based on what makes sense for each financial situation.
               

Benefits of  An Arizona Bridge Loan

Bridge loans have several benefits for the borrower. Namely, they allow them to put their existing home on the market without being inconvenienced with appointments for showings. Because the owners have already purchased and moved into their new home the home on the market can be de-cluttered and staged for optimum showing. Staged homes sell more quickly and for higher dollar amounts that homes that are lived in during showings. If getting top dollar for your home is your goal, a bridge loan may help you move into your new home so that your existing home shows at its best.

Another benefit of a bridge loan is that many do not require payments for a couple months. Some mortgage brokers can get deals where you won’t make payments on a bridge loan for up to four months. If you are able to sell your home during that time you won’t ever have to make a monthly payment on the bridge loan as you can use the cash you get from selling your home to pay it off.

If a an Arizona bridge loan sounds like a good option for you, find a mortgage broker in Arizona to get started on the application process. 

Bridge loans can help you find and buy “the one” before your home sells. You can always make a contingency offer, meaning that you will purchase the home when yours sells. However, if you are in a multiple offer situation or a seller’s market, having a contingency offer accepted can be tricky. A bridge loan gives you the cash you need to buy the home before your home sells.

3 Ways an Arizona Bridge Loan Can Lend a Helping Hand

If you find yourself in a situation where there is a gap between expected income and current expenses, an Arizona bridge loan  can help. Designed to be a short term loan, there are many ways that bridge loans can lend a helping hand when you find yourself in a financial bind. 

An Arizona bridge loan is a short term loan that is designed to "bridge" the gap between expected income and a current expense. Bridge loans are a little known loan type that can be very helpful in a variety of financial situations. Here are three ways that an Arizona bridge loan can help you.

1. You need a down payment. If you are selling a home while concurrently purchasing a new one, you are probably relying on the sale of your current home to finance your down payment. This makes it impossible to move before you home sells, even if you can qualify for both mortgages. You can use an Arizona bridge loan to borrow your down payment. You would use the equity in your current house (the one on the market) to secure you bridge loan. The loan would then be used as a down payment and paid back after your home sells. This allows you to move before your home sells.

2. You own a business and have an expense before expected income comes in. If you are waiting on a big check but have an immediate expense, a bridge loan can be a great short term option to pay debts you owe. Once your income materializes, you use it to pay back your bridge loan.

3. You are expecting a windfall but have expenses before it gets there. Whether it is an equity payment, lottery payment, or even an inheritance, a bridge loan can help you pay what you need to while you wait for it to come in. Once it does, you use the funds to repay the loan.

If you find yourself in a situation where you would benefit from an Arizona bridge loan, call a mortgage broker today!
