5/25/2023 – Bridge on a Free and clear property

In the past four days, I have received four phone calls for Bridge Loans on free and clear properties. All these people have found their “dream homes” and are looking to move NOW! They will list and sell when / if their offer gets accepted, and we can waive all contingencies when we do these types of loans and close in 12-15 days. These buyers do not have a 2.75% mortgage. They are ready and willing to move, and there are a lot of them out there! You could market all homeowners with free and clear properties and see if that helps with inventory. Did you know that 33% of California Homeowners own their properties free and clear? That’s around 2.4 million homeowners across the state.


Remember our 12-day closings! We are getting a lot of offers accepted because of short escrows!


We are now on a 14-day losing streak in the bond market, and some of these losses are significant. Interest rates have climbed over .5% on most products then, but remember that you can still buy down interest rates to where we were a couple of weeks ago!
