Bridge Loan Program Highlights / Guidelines

A private loan or bridge loan, is a short-term loan that usually assists in bridging a borrower from a less favorable situation to a more favorable situation. For example, a borrower may take out a bridge loan to pull cash-out of his property to pay off lingering debt and improve a low credit score, so he can refinance into a permanent loan. Investment residential real estate collateral is essential to KIAVI’s programs and borrowers without investment residential real estate are not eligible for financing.
