A bridge loan is a short-term loan that uses the equity from your current home to help you make an offer on a new one, without rushing to sell.
After months of research, Compass has selected lenders that are offering competitive rates and dedicated service for Compass clients. Already working with a lender you love? No problem. This unique solution lets you choose the provider that works best for you.
Work with a Compass agent to sell your current home and get up to six months of your bridge loan payments and other associated costs fronted — an exclusive offering for Compass clients, regardless of the lender you use.*
Is your money tied up in the equity of your current home?
If you want to move but your money is tied up in the equity of your current house, a bridge loan can help you secure funding to facilitate the transition to a new home — like for a down payment or mortgage payments. Once your current home sells, you can use the proceeds to pay the bridge loan back.
Do you need to move within a specific timeframe?
If you’re relocating for a new job or other reason, a bridge loan can afford you the freedom to move on your own terms and secure a new house when you need to, without having to wait for your old home to sell.
Does your home require renovations or other work?
Inquire directly with a bridge loan lender, such as Better Mortgage or Freedom Mortgage, to see financing options and if you qualify.
Apply to get pre-approved for a bridge loan with the lender of your choice, while searching with your Compass agent for your next home.
Move into your new home while your Compass agent works to sell your current home. Use Compass Concierge home improvement services to sell your home faster and for more money.
While Compass clients are encouraged to find the best lender for them, Freedom Mortgage and Better Mortgage are industry-leading lenders who offer short-term financing and are a part of Compass Bridge Loan Services
What rates and fees accompany a bridge loan?
The rates and fees for each bridge loan are determined by the lender. We recommend reaching out to a bridge loan lender directly to learn more. As a reminder, the bridge loan itself can be from any lender of your choice. If you are approved for the Bridge Loan Advance, it has a 0% APR for the life of the loan and has no additional application or closing fees.*
What is covered by the Bridge Loan Advance?
The Bridge Loan Advance can equal up to 6 months of monthly payments and eligible closing costs incurred from the bridge loan.* Eligible closing costs include: (1) the dollar value of any points paid upfront, (2) origination or application fees where applicable; and (3) appraisal fees.
Who is eligible for the Bridge Loan Advance?
The Bridge Loan Advance is available exclusively for qualified clients with a traditional bridge loan who are working with a Compass agent to sell their existing primary residence.*
