What is a bridge loan? A bridge loan is basically a short-term loan that a homeowner can use to bridge the gap between two transactions typically the buying of one house and the selling of another. Bridge loans are temporary in nature usually with maximum terms of 6 to 12 months. Bridge loans are typically more expensive than conventional financing with interest rates, roughly two percent higher than the average fixed-rate mortgages.
