Real Estate Bridge Loans

A real estate bridge loan, sometimes referred to as a “swing loan,” “gap financing,” or “interim financing,” is a short-term loan that “bridges the gap” or gets a borrower from point ‘A’ to ‘B’ by leveraging the equity in a property they already own. It enables a borrower to purchase a new property before permanent financing is obtained or another property is sold.


Real estate bridge loans are temporary in nature and can be used for a variety of business opportunities in addition to buying real estate investment properties.


If your project does not meet traditional lenders’ standards or you simply need to act quickly, a real estate bridge loan may be perfect for you. Bridge loan terms range from 6-12 months.

I’m now working on my second project with WSF. The loan process for both was fast and easy. My second loan closed exactly four days after I brought them the deal. Looking for another deal now!

The WSF team has been fantastic and hands-on the whole way. They have been easy to work with, and have given me tips on everything from roofing to sod, then helped me find a great local realtor and stager. A great partner.

I have worked with Walnut Street Finance on two deals in DC. Our first property is under contract above asking price, and we're underway with the second. The Walnut Street Finance team has been very helpful and done everything possible to help me succeed.
