A "low interest" loan shouldn't mean you have very little interest in paying it back!
  • Bridge Loan

    A bridge loan comes in handy in situations where you are looking to buy a new property with the money earned by selling off an existing unit or property. 

    The term ‘bridge loan’ is something not many people are aware of. It is a type of gap financing arrangement which enables you to get-short term loans from banks. These loans help in bridging the gap between short-term loan requirements and long-term goals.


    Most banks in the country offer bridge loans to applicants at a high rate of interest for a repayment period of 12 months. The loan is provided on the back of a collateral such as equity or debentures.

    Though public sector banks offer bridge loans, the concept is yet to be fully explored in the country. If you require urgent financing for down-payment, you could check with the bank you have a long-standing relationship with, and see if they can offer you a good deal. You could also opt for a short-term personal loan if you’re sure to be able to pay it off soon.
