Quick Commercial Bridge Loans to bridge the gap until a conventional commercial loan is your best option

Quick Bridge Funding via a Commercial Bridge Loan Mortgage can be a life saver for an investor or business person in difficult times, not only to take advantage of a great investment opportunity where there is no time for conventional financing but also to stop a commercial foreclosure. Yes, you can use a commercial bridge loan mortgage to avoid a commercial foreclosure.

This is more true today than ever due to the increased commercial underwriting requirements instituted by the banks post the real estate and financial debacle in 2007 and 2008. It’s really a shame too. During the heyday of mortgage lending, if you had a pulse, you could get a loan, particularly in the residential market and to a lesser degree in the commercial real estate market.

What is a Commercial Bridge Mortgage Loan usually offered by hard money mortgage lenders
Quick Bridge Funding loans on commercial properties are simply commercial loans to bridge a gap of some kind. These “gaps” can be physical or financial. They essentially are fast loans with much less underwriting to either get a business through a bad period (avoid foreclosure, etc.)  or to get a purchase done for a buyer to not miss an opportunity due to traditional long underwriting periods as well as give buyers time to stabilize a property to get it ready for a conventional commercial mortgage. Bridge mortgages carry higher interest rates and lower LTVs.

Once a customer experiences a “blip” in credit (even unrelated to their commercial loan) or pay history, most banks will ‘show them the door’ and often not giving them sufficient time to acquire a new replacement loan. If the borrower is behind on their payments, catching up rarely avoids being told to go elsewhere.

These scenarios are exactly what commercial quick bridge financing aka hard money lending are for. They can close quickly and provide a short term (bridge) solution for the borrower to avoid foreclosure which of course makes it next to impossible for the borrower to get a new traditional loan for years and while a commercial aka hard money bridge loan can be expensive, the alternative is dramatically worse.

Another situation where hard money bridge financing is appealing is for buyers of commercial real estate who want to seize an opportunity but the time frame for a traditional commercial bank loan (45-60 days or more if it’s an SBA loan) is to short. Rather than lose the opportunity, the buyer pays the extra financing costs to buy time since they close much faster, although traditional hard money loan rates with hard money mortgage lenders are in double-digits.

A third situation where commercial real estate bridge loans come in handy is when a buyer needs to stabilize a commercial property physically (repairs or renovation) or financially (rent out available spaces or raise rents if they are under market) before it could qualify for traditional financing.

In summary, every prospective commercial hard money loan recipient of large commercial property bridge financing has to 1) Do the math to see if the extra cost with hard money loan rates in the short term makes sense long-term and/or 2) Look at the big picture. This type analysis takes the emotions out of the decision, which is very important for the business and business owner.
