Your house is feeling a little too small. It’s actually feeling A LOT too small. When you bought it, there was just you or just the two you. But now, well now, there’s you plus three small humans, a canine, two guinea pigs and a fish.
While you have a great job and good credit, you are low on cash because you spent the last 8 years paying off student debt. You don’t have a down payment for the new house. However, there’s a lot of equity in your current home. You bought during the recession at a great price and neighborhood values have been steadily improving.
The Bridge Loan
Yay! This allows you to write a competitive offer, not contingent on the sale of your current home. You only move one time and you have purchased the new home with a permanent mortgage.

On top of that, you selected the right Realtor to help with the sale of your existing home so it will sell in a hot minute and you won’t have to worry about carrying double payments for an extended time.
