At Unconditional Finance, we specialise in bridging loans that provide you with the financial flexibility to make a seamless transition between properties. Our tailored solutions ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream home, offering you peace of mind during this important phase of your life.

What is a Bridging Loan?

A bridging loan is a short-term financial solution created to fill the gap between purchasing a new property and selling your existing one. It gives homeowners the necessary funds to buy a new property before finalising the sale of their current home. This loan is especially advantageous in competitive markets where timing is critical.

Bridging loans are ideal for various scenarios, such as upgrading to a larger home, downsizing, or relocating for work. They allow you to secure your new property without the stress of having to sell your current home immediately. This flexibility is also advantageous for first-home buyers looking to upgrade, ensuring they can act quickly when the right opportunity arises.

Benefits of Bridging Loans

➡️ Smooth Transition: Ensure a seamless move between properties without the pressure of synchronising sale and purchase dates.

➡️ Flexible Repayment Options: Choose from closed or open bridging loans to suit your financial situation.

➡️ Avoid stressful sales: Take the time to sell your current home at the best possible price without rushing.

➡️ Immediate Access to Funds: Act quickly in a competitive market with immediate financing for your new property.

➡️ Maintain Lifestyle: Secure your new home first to ensure continuity and stability for you and your family.

Eligibility Criteria for Bridging Loans

To qualify for a bridging loan, certain criteria must be met to ensure that the loan is suitable for your financial situation. Here are the key eligibility requirements:

Property Ownership

Applicants must own an existing property, which will be used as collateral for the bridging loan.

Equity and Valuation

There must be sufficient equity in the current property. Lenders will require a valuation of both the existing and new properties to determine the loan amount.

Creditworthiness

A good credit score is essential for securing a bridging loan. Lenders will review your credit history to ensure you have a reliable repayment track record.

Income Verification

Proof of income is important to demonstrate your ability to service the bridging loan interest and any existing mortgage repayments.

Fulfilling these criteria guarantees that you can secure the funds required for your new property purchase while maintaining financial stability throughout the transition period.

How to Apply for a Bridging Loan

Applying for a bridging loan with Unconditional Finance is a straightforward process designed to provide you with the necessary funds quickly and efficiently. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

1. Initial Consultation

Schedule a consultation with one of our expert advisors to discuss your financial needs and the specifics of your property transactions.

2. Document Preparation

Prepare and gather the required documents, including proof of income, identification, and details of the properties involved. This may also include recent property valuations and information on any existing mortgages.

3. Application Submission

Complete the application form with the help of our advisors, ensuring all necessary information is included. Submit the form along with your supporting documents.

4. Loan Assessment

Our team will assess your application, including the valuation of both properties and your creditworthiness. We aim to provide a prompt decision to help you move forward with your property purchase.

5. Approval and Fund Disbursement

Once approved, the funds will be disbursed, allowing you to complete the purchase of your new property. Our team will guide you through each step, ensuring a smooth and stress-free process.

For additional assistance and personalised advice, you can also consult a refinancing mortgage broker who specialises in bridging loans and refinancing options.

Types of Bridging Loans

Understanding the different types of bridging loans available can help you choose the option that best suits your financial needs and property purchase timeline. Here are the two main types:

Closed Bridging Loans

Closed bridging loans come with a fixed repayment date, typically aligned with the sale date of your existing property. This type of loan is ideal when you have a confirmed sale date for your current home, providing certainty and often more favourable terms due to the reduced risk for the lender. Closed bridging loans offer a structured timeline, making it easier to plan your finances and move into your new property without delays.

Open Bridging Loans

Open bridging loans do not have a fixed repayment date, offering more flexibility if the sale date of your existing property is not yet confirmed. This type of loan is suitable for those who have secured a new property but have not yet sold their current one. Open bridging loans provide greater flexibility to accommodate varying sale timelines, but they may come with higher interest rates due to the increased risk for the lender. This option allows you to move forward with your new property purchase while still having the time to sell your existing home at the best possible price.

Both types of bridging loans provide valuable financial solutions to help you transition between properties seamlessly. At Unconditional Finance, we offer both closed and open bridging loans tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. Our expert team is here to help you identify the best option based on your financial situation and property goals.

Loan Benefits

There are a number of benefits to using your medical profession when applying for a home loan:

Faster Loan Approval

As doctors have more lenient eligibility requirements when it comes to applying for home loans, the approval process can often be faster than that of traditional loans. This is especially beneficial if you need to buy quickly or are buying in a competitive market.

Higher Loan Amounts

Most lenders also typically allow doctors to borrow more than people employed in other professions. This is because medical professionals are considered to be high-income earners with the ability to repay larger loan amounts.

Lower Interest Rates

Most lenders typically offer more interest rate discounts on doctor home loans than they do for traditional loans. This is because medical professionals are considered a low-risk group with a stable income and good job security. Lower interest rates can save you thousands of dollars over the lifetime of your loan.

No Ongoing Fees

In some cases, home loans for doctors may not have any ongoing fees (such as annual or account-keeping fees). This can save you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars over the lifetime of the loan.

Plus Other Benefits 

Other additional features that you may be offered as a part of your home loan could include offset accounts or redraw facilities, which can help you to save on interest and manage cash flow.

Your Home Loans Questions Answered

The fees charged by bridging brokers can vary significantly, depending on the complexity of the loan and the specific broker. Typically, bridging brokers charge a fee based on a percentage of the loan amount, which can range from 0.5% to 2%. It’s important to discuss the fee structure with your broker upfront to understand all costs involved.

A bridging finance broker is a specialist who helps clients secure bridging loans. They have expertise in short-term financing and work with various lenders to find the best loan options for your specific needs. A bridging finance broker will assist you throughout the application process, ensuring all requirements are fulfilled and helping you secure the most advantageous terms.

Bridging finance can be more expensive than traditional home loans due to the short-term nature and higher risk associated with these loans. Interest rates for bridging loans are typically higher, ranging from 5% to 12% per annum. Additionally, there could be setup fees, valuation charges, and ongoing expenses. It’s essential to factor in all expenses and compare them using a loan comparison calculator to ensure you make an informed decision.

Industry Experience

Over our 12 years as mortgage brokers in Sydney, we have helped many doctors and medical professionals reach their financial goals.

Finding Home Loans For Doctors

Whilst home loans are usually used to purchase somewhere to live, we understand that situations can quickly change when dealing with the medical profession. A doctor may be living in a capital city, for example, but decide to work in a rural location for a period of time. The property they bought as an owner-occupier could suddenly become an investment property six months down the line.

The team at Unconditional Finance can help doctors and other medical professionals to find a home loan that suits their particular situation.

Doctors Are Securing Home Loans With Uncondtional Finance

While it might seem simple for medical professionals to secure a home loan, the additional benefits offered make this process more complex. The team at Unconditional Finance has many years of experience in home loans for doctors; we take the time to understand your unique situation and needs and then find a loan to suit you. Whether you need to meet with us after hours, at your workplace or even at your home, we are committed to making the application process as convenient as possible.
