Multifamily Bridge Loans

What is a Multifamily Bridge Loan?

Multifamily bridge loans are short term (12 - 24 month), interest only loans for the purchase and renovation of 5+ unit residential properties. OfferMarket is a private lender for experienced real estate investors.

Why do investors use bridge loans?

The bridge loan, whether for single family (1-4 unit) or multifamily (5+ unit) residential properties, is a powerful financing program that allows real estate investors to purchase properties with minimum down payment, and access a line of credit to renovate the property.

Bridge loans are interest only, meaning there is no principal repayment (amortization) on a monthly basis. Since the investor is only making interest payment and not making principal payments as they would with a mortgage, the investor can conserve cash while the property may be fully or partially vacant and focus on preparing the property for sale or refinance into a longer term loan.
