We offer unsecured bridging loans up to $300,000 SGD with longer loan tenures to provide you with one of the best loans in town.
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.
Our bridging loan stands out as we provide our borrowers with a wide range of unique benefits.
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|
|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.
