Success stories

BRIDGE LOAN SERVICES

A simple solution to bridge the gap between the home you have and the home you want.

Compass Bridge Loan Services gets you access to competitive rates and dedicated support from industry-leading lenders, with the exclusive option to get up to six months of your loan payments fronted when you sell your home with a Compass agent.




What’s a bridge loan?

A bridge loan is a short-term loan that uses the equity from your current home to help you make an offer on a new one, without rushing to sell.




Our Solution

After months of research, Compass has selected lenders that are offering competitive rates and dedicated service for Compass clients. Already working with a lender you love? No problem. This unique solution lets you choose the provider that works best for you.

Bridge Loan Advance

Work with a Compass agent to sell your current home and get up to six months of your bridge loan payments and other associated costs fronted — an exclusive offering for Compass clients, regardless of the lender you use.*




Does a bridge loan make sense for you?


Is your money tied up in your current home?

If you need to move but your money is tied up in the equity of your current house, a bridge loan can help you secure funding to facilitate the transition to a new home — like for a down payment or mortgage payments. Once your current home sells, you’ll use the proceeds to pay the bridge loan back.


Do you need to move within a specific timeframe?

If you’re relocating for a new job or other reason, a bridge loan can afford you the freedom to move on your own terms and secure a new house when you need to, without having to wait for your old home to sell.


Does your home require renovations or other work?

Whether you’re using Compass Concierge to increase your home’s value, or are making improvements on your own, it may be easier to have construction work done when you’re out of the house. A bridge loan can help you move faster so you’re out of the house while those improvements are being completed.





How It Works

1

Inquire directly with a bridge loan lender, such as Better Mortgage or Freedom Mortgage, to see financing options and if you qualify.

2

Apply to get pre-approved for a bridge loan with the lender of your choice, while searching with your Compass agent for your next home.

3

If approved for a bridge loan, learn more about getting the first six months of your bridge loan payments fronted via the Bridge Loan Advance by Notable, an independent lender.

4

If needed, use your approved bridge loan to strengthen your bid on a new home.

5

Move into your new home while your Compass agent works to sell your current home.

Use Compass Concierge home improvement services to sell your home faster and for more money.

6

When your old home sells, simply use the proceeds to pay back the bridge loan and Bridge Loan Advance.





Next step: finding a lender

While Compass clients are encouraged to find the best lender for them, Freedom Mortgage and Better.com are industry-leading lenders who offer short-term financing and are a part of Compass Bridge Loan Services.




When looking for a mortgage, it’s important to find a company that specializes in mortgages above all else, and to find a lender that can address your unique home-buying or refinancing needs, regardless of how unique your circumstances may be. That’s the Freedom Mortgage difference.

Success story

Zillow Review from Madeline Nykaza

"Thanks to Tyler, I'm writing this review from inside my perfect, dream home. Tyler came highly recommended to me from a friend and I couldn't agree more with the recommendation. If you are serious about buying a home, there's no better realtor in the area than Tyler. I worked with Tyler for about 6 months from beginning to closing. He was supportive, patient and understanding throughout the long process. If you tell Tyler what you want, he will find you that exact home (and he will make you feel okay even if you change your mind a million times like I did). It's a huge investment and Tyler wants nothing more than for you to find your dream home."

Success stories

Katie L.

“Katie is far more than a sales agent. I had a vague notion of what I wanted to do with regards to moving to Washington from New York, with little idea of how to do it. From the first moment I entered her office, Katie helped me to think through my family's situation and options to come up with a plan to move to DC. She is so top notch - an excellent advisor and negotiator, who consistently guided my family with insights into the DC market and the moving process. It helped us the right decisions throughout the six-month process. Moreover, Katie understands more than the mechanics of making a sale or a purchase. Moving can be exciting, stressful, and tumultuous. Katie supports this process with understanding, experience, and nuance. There's no one I'd recommend more to have as part of your team.”

Buyer

“Jackson is awesome! It would be impossible to list every single reason why I think he's awesome, but a few of the highlights are that he's caring, hilarious, supportive, and very competent - he's fantastic at what he does and truly made the process of searching for and buying a home so much easier, less stressful, and more enjoyable than it otherwise would've been. He was incredibly patient when I was just casually looking a year ago and he always aimed to be helpful (I noticed how non-pushy he was compared to a couple of other agents that several friends suggested). When my fiance and I were finally ready to buckle down and find a place, Jackson came with us to look at many places, and he was a total pro. He had a great eye for picking up on things/potential problematic signs that we weren't accustomed to look out for since the whole process was so new to us. He was incredibly responsive to emails and texts and always made time for us (to answer questions or come with us last-minute to an open house) and made us feel taken care of. He gave us great advice for both the negotiation and inspection processes. We felt like we were in good hands from start to finish and are forever grateful to Jackson for helping us buy our first home.”
