Owner Occupied Bridge Loans
If you’re looking to purchase a new home and want the best chance of securing your dream property, you may qualify for an owner occupied bridge loan from First Bridge Lending.

We put you in direct contact with decision makers and local market experts dedicated to your loan, quickly providing you with competitive capital. This direct lending style makes it possible for qualifying loans to close within three days.
