Bridge financing

Traditional lenders offer bridge financing.

To help you prepare financially, for example with Scotiabank, they charge prime plus 5% for the bridge. Also, they typically charge an administrative fee of $250.

Using an example prime rate of 3.95%, a bridge of $10,000 would cost you approximately $2.45 a day plus the administrative fee.

Alternative lenders DO NOT offer bridge financing and the closing dates must align or the sale must be complete before the purchase closing date.

For a bridge there needs to be a firm sale (all conditions waived) on your existing home and a firm purchase (all conditions waived) on your current home.

A bridge loan is not guaranteed and you need to apply and be approved for it.
