Flexibility is crucial to investors in today’s market and bridging finance is a strategic way to leverage investments, for landlords looking to grow their portfolio, enabling the investor to purchase below market value properties and properties that are not mortgageable. In today’s market where there are many purchasers chasing the same property, it is essential to be able to move quickly.
