Frequently Asked Questions
If you require capital to complete land or commercial property acquisition, a real estate bridge loan could help you move quickly and avoid unnecessary hold-ups as you await the sale of an existing asset or confirmation of longer-term funding from another lender. The ability to move forward with your project can help minimise the risk of mounting costs and delays to external contractors.
The primary advantage of using a real estate bridge loan is that it provides flexibility due to the speed at which the funding can be secured. This can help strengthen your position if bidding for a property or land asset at auction. Bridging loan amounts available from Citic Managment vary from between $200,000 to $3m AUD so offer a viable solution for a wide range of real estate projects.
