When do you need a bridging loan?

With a private lender like Sparrow Loans on your side, you can jump on an investment opportunity without waiting for a bank loan application’s long processing times.

When you have a settlement coming up and you’ve put down a deposit, it can become nerve-wracking to wait for your unconditional bank approval. You risk losing your deposit or incurring penalty costs from the vendor if there are delays in settlement.

With a private funder like Sparrow Loans, we can turn around a bridging loan approval within 48 hours and settle within two weeks.

How do you determine the property value?

If you are a talented negotiator and have secured an offer on an investment property below the property’s market value, we can help you there too. We can lend against a current property valuation rather than the Contract Sale price. We do not penalise you for finding an excellent investment opportunity in this market.

No minimum term

Whether you need a loan for one month or 12 months, we give you the flexibility to choose your loan term as you prepare to refinance with the bank for a more long term loan facility. Our bridging loans allow you to capitalise 100% of the loan facility’s interest too.

What is a bridging loan?

MoneySmart tells us that a bridging loan is a Short-term finance that covers the period between buying a new property and selling your existing property.

How does a bridging loan work?

Most people sell their commercial asset first and then buy their next investment with the available equity. But there are times when you see a commercial property opportunity that’s too hard to resist, and you want to buy it now. If you wait for the bank to give you the money, the property could be sold to someone else, which means you miss out on this excellent investment. A real pity as this asset may be just the thing you’ve been wanting. Bridging finance can solve this dilemma by giving you the funds for the commercial or investment property purchase while you wait for the bank to provide you with the money, which can take months. A Sparrow Bridging Loan gives you access to fast cash so you can snap up a property without having to wait for bank approval.
