Mortgage Monday: Using Home Equity as a Bridge Loan [Video]

In this week’s episode of Mortgage Monday video show, Jim Cardinal and Alexis Meeks address the idea of using  a home equity as a bridge loan. First let’s get a little better understanding of what a bridge loan is:

bridge loan is a type of short-term loan, typically taken out for a period of 2 weeks to 3 years pending the arrangement of larger or longer-term financing. ~ wikipedia

The thought is a bridge loan can help a home buyer through the transition of buying a new home while their still in the process of selling their old home.
