There’s a lot to weigh up when buying and selling property, so we’ve tried to make things a little easier for you by calling out some key considerations.
A bridging loan is a short term loan that allows you to borrow against your existing property's equity to purchase a new home. Bridging loans generally cover the purchase price and stamp duty on a new purchase. You repay the loan within the agreed term once you have sold your existing property.
Yes, a Bridgit loan is a first mortgage. Bridgit will refinance your existing home loan as part of the loan amount so that you avoid having to manage two mortgages at the one time.
Yes! Bridgit’s Bridging Loans are a short-term finance solution to buying your dream property. Bridgit provides up to 75% LVR of the combined value of your two properties. For example, if your existing property equity is $2M, and the property you want to buy is worth $1M, Bridgit can cover the full purchase price of your new property. If you are upsizing and need more time to pay back the loan as there is an end loan after the sale, you can refinance to a longer-term loan with an alternate lender.
Costs and fees vary depending on your unique loan scenario. For example, Bridgit may charge:
Set-up fee: The set-up fee starts from 0.99% and is calculated as a percentage of the total loan amount. It is added to your final loan amount and is repaid when your loan is closed.
Interest rate: The first month of the loan period is interest free. Once the one month period has ended, the interest rate is from 8.69% p.a. (8.81% p.a. comparison rate^). Interest is calculated on a daily basis; you only pay interest for the number of days after the interest free period.
Loan deposit: A $900 deposit is paid to accept our conditional approval offer and allows you to move your application into the final stages. Once your loan is funded, Bridgit will apply a credit of the same amount, meaning you get it back.
Valuation fees: To confirm the final loan offer, Bridgit need to complete a valuation on your existing property and the new one you are purchasing. Bridgit charge from $250 per valuation.
Government & settlement fees: Government and settlement fees can vary state by state but generally include title registration fees, mortgage registration fees, discharge fees, PEXA fees, and legal fees.
Apply online in under 5 minutes and receive same day pre-approval. You then pay a small upfront deposit to accept our offer, which allows us to progress your loan to final checks and approvals. Once you sign the loan documents your loan will be settled, all in as little as 48 hours*.
*Subject to the loan scenario and outgoing lenders processes on refinance (if applicable).

Unconditional approval is given once Bridgit have completed the final assessments of your loan documents, you are then provided a Bridgit loan offer that is not subject to any conditions. This is your final loan offer, and you have 60 days to settle on your new home.
