What is a Bridging Loan?

It’s always good news that you and your family are moving into a larger apartment / home. 

This might mean a bigger living area, more rooms, lush toilets, a kitchen island, a giant fridge or simply living on higher ground.

However, even if you have successfully found a buyer for your current home, you might not receive payment until months later.

During this period, you will need to make your down payment of 20% purchase price for your new home. Without the sale proceeds from your current home, it may be tough to secure the funds.

Where then can you procure the funds needed for your down payment?

A bridging loan is a form of housing loan that provides you with the necessary funds required to meet your immediate cash flow needs, while you wait for the sales proceeds from your current home. In essence, it is used to “bridge the monetary gap” between your current and new home.

Fretting over down payment fees? Upgrading your house just got a whole lot easier with Lending Bee’s bridging loan.

FAQ on Lending Bee's Bridging Loans

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are thinking of upgrading from a HDB to a condominium / private property, a bridging loan might just be what you need.

Just as the name suggests, a bridging loan, also known as a bridge loan, is a short-term loan to help bridge the financial gap between the sale of your current property and the purchase of your new home.

These loans are designed to help you tide over the period until proceeds from the sale of your current property comes in.

With a bridging loan, you will be able to secure the capital required for the 20% down payment of your new property.

For instance, Mr and Mrs Lee are planning to sell their current HDB flat in Punggol to purchase a new condominium in Kallang. 

They managed to find a buyer. However, they can only receive the sales proceeds 5 months later.

Existing HDB Price New Condominium Price
$450,000$1,000,000
Financing The Property Purchase Of $1,000,000
Downpayment (5% in cash)$1,000,000 x 5% = $50,000
Downpayment (20% in cash and / or CPF)$1,000,000 x 20% = $200,000
Loan Amount$1,000,000 x 75% = $750,000

Mr and Mrs Khoo have sufficient funds for the 5% cash down payment but do not have enough for the remaining 20% down payment. 

They still require the proceeds from the sale of their current HDB. 

In this case, they can consider applying for a bridging loan to make up for the shortfall. 

The three main differentiating factors between our bridging loan compared to banks are:

  • Speed
  • Ease of application
  • Service rendered

We believe in providing you with a bridging loan in the shortest time possible. 

This is why we have streamlined our borrowing process into 3 simple steps. 

Moreover, we do not go through rigorous credit checks and also do not require much paperwork. 

Ultimately, our experienced loan officers will be there to guide you on the best bridging loan package for your needs and provide professional advice so that you’ll be able to make payment for your dream home in no time.

1. Type of loan required

Before you enter into any loan contract, it is important to discern between secured and unsecured loans.

  • Unsecured loans have a lower borrowing threshold. However, they do not require collateral.
  • Secured loans have a higher borrowing threshold. However, they require collateral.

2. Interest rates

Ensure that you are getting the best interest rates as they will significantly affect your monthly repayments.

Additionally, there may be hidden fees that you might be unaware of:

  • Origination fees
  • Service fees
  • Underwriting fees

Lending Bee® does not practice any of such fees. Additional fees, if any, will be made known to you before you sign your loan contract. 

3. Loan tenure

Your loan tenure will also have an impact on the cost of your total loan. 

Ensure that you work with a loan tenure that is comfortable with you so that you can make comfortable repayments.

4. Your current financial situation

This is going to be the most vital factor. 

Know where you currently stand in your finances so that you will be able to make better financial decisions, especially on the loan amount that you are looking to apply for.

Here is an estimate of the prices of properties in Singapore. A good rule of thumb to keep is that the better the location, the more expensive the house.

3-Room HDBs are usually at the size of 60-65 sqm.

The house usually comes with 1 master bedroom, 1 common bedroom, 1 living room, 1 or 2 toilets, 1 kitchen and 1 store room. The price of the property depends greatly on location.

2. 4-room HDB ($400,000 – $550,000)

4-Room HDBs usually measure around 90-100 sqm.

3. 5-room HDB ($500,000 – $670,000)

5-Room HDBs are usually at the size of 110-120 sqm.

They are larger than the other HDBs and comes with 1 master bedroom, 2 common bedrooms, 2 toilets, 1 kitchen, 1 store room and 1 larger living room that is usually attached to a dining area. 

The living room area is much larger and more spacious.

4. Executive Apartment ($550,000 – $690,000)

This is a larger public housing and usually measures at least 130 sqm, making it perfect for larger families or three generation families.

The house comes with 1 master bedroom, 2 common bedrooms, 1 very large living room, 1 dining area, 1 additional area that could be used as a study or guest room, 3 toilets,1 kitchen and 1 store room. 

Some executive apartments will include stairs as well.

5. Executive Condominium ($800,000 – $950,000)

Executive Condominiums (EC) are public-private hybrids. 

The houses start of as public housing and will be converted to private homes after five years.

They run a 99-year lease and most of them offer similar facilities as private condos.

6. Condominium ($1,000,000 – $2,000,0000)
