By: Richard Pasic

If you have found your dream home and don't have enough cash to own it then the best option is to sell your current home and go for the new one. But this property transaction does not go smooth always. Short term bridging loan helps people struck into this type situation by providing enough cash to buy your dream home till you sell your current one. It actually bridges the gap in between these two property transactions.

In brief short term bridging loan is of secured type provided on short term conditions. The amount has to be paid within a short time period of 1 or 2 months and borrower has to pledge some short of security as collateral against the loaned amount. This can be anything valuable like your home, car or any other valuable asset which has got some equity in it.

Different features

The amount which can be secured through depends greatly on the security offered. Generally the borrower can get an amount equalling to 75% of the equity of collateral offered. Borrower should always repay the amount within the specified time as interest rate charged in this case is quite high and failing in that may force some extra penalty which really can be cumbersome. Moreover sometimes the non repayment of the loan may force possession of your property by the lender for which he is authorized.

A good credit record can help you to get a cheap loan but it does not hinder the chance for people wit adverse credit history. Financers are also coming forward with flexible plans for the people having adverse credit. You can go for traditional lenders or online lenders depending on your choice. The online facility provides you a quick access to various existing offers, so you can choose the apt one.
