It is not uncommon to hear Arizona Bridge Loan being referred to in any of the following ways: swing loans, wraps, or, more obviously, bridging the gap. All of these things mean the same thing: using a down payment on your current home in an effort to purchase your next. If you want to avoid selling your current home first or any possible contingencies in contracts, this may be an option that’s attractive to you.
The possibility of having freedom of searching, buying and selling your home, with no transition period between, is one reason many consider Arizona Bridge Loans. Renovating or relocating is oftentimes much easier without having to find a temporary living space. Others are attracted to them for their lack of contingencies, while the lenders themselves find the high interest rates and short-term, low-risk repayment valuable.
A great credit score and a low debt to income ratio will be necessary if you want to obtain this type of loan. Not only that, but you must be able to afford a mortgage on two properties, as bridging the gap results in the temporary owning of two properties. The loans will have high interest rates and are expected to be paid back fast. Rates do vary across lenders; however, they happen to average about 2 percent higher than the market. The loan’s LTV, loan to value ratio, will also affect them, in addition to your personal credit history. These are definitely things you want to consider before jumping into the loan. Understanding the housing market and evaluating how your home will fare against the rest is something that will impact your decision. If your home isn’t selling, it’s possible to get a loan extension. Still, you will want to be prepared for all possible outcomes ahead of time and know if you can handle the possible stress of all of these outcomes, and know how to move forward and plan possible solutions.
If you’ve considered all factors of your situation and believe Arizona Bridge Loan are right for you, it’s possible to find a lender at your local bank or credit union. If you are feeling doubtful, there are still alternatives you can consider including a 401 k and home equity loans. Personal loans are another option that may be suitable for your situation. They do not have high interest rates, like home equity loans, and can be combined with other types of loans. Analyzing all of your options will ensure that you make the decision that is best for you. There are options when it comes to borrowing—it just comes down to knowing what your situation calls for, and where to look.
