Frequently Asked Questions
What Is a Bridging Loan?
A bridging loan is a short-term loan generally used to finance the purchase of a new property. It gives you the funds you need to pay the downpayment for your new home while you wait to receive the sales proceeds of your old property.
Let’s assume that you are upgrading your property by purchasing a new one valued at S$1,000,000.
In this scenario, you’ve already paid the 5% downpayment in cash. However, you don’t have enough savings to pay for the next downpayment which is 20% of the purchase price because your old home is not yet sold. On top of all these, your home loan application is still pending approval.
You can take out a bridging loan to pay for the hefty 20% downpayment to secure your dream home.
