Enness can broker Bahamian bridging loans of any amount but are particularly experienced in brokering deals involving high-value real estate, including large loans of $10 million or more secured against prime Bahamian property.
Lenders will offer you a short-term loan secured against real estate you own in the Bahamas.
An advantage of bridging loans is that funds can be drawn down more quickly compared to conventional property finance, meaning these loans are often used to achieve certain goals or solve financial problems when you need to access liquidity fast. Before offering you a loan, you will need to present lenders with a structured exit plan. Despite being open to how exactly you plan to exit the loan at term, you must have a solid, documented strategy for using and managing the funds. Refinancing, the sale of properties and liquidity events - such as sale of a business or expected inheritance, are common strategies.
A number of things can have an impact on the amount you are able to borrow, including your property's value, plans, financial background, net worth and exit strategy. On average, LTV for Bahamas bridging loans stands at about 60 to 65%, however certain lenders may be able to offer you more or less than this. Lenders may also consider securing your loan against multiple assets, either in the Bahamas or internationally, which can increase the amount you can borrow. This can be particularly useful for high-net-worth individuals with global property portfolios. The higher your net worth and the stronger your financial situation, the more finance you are likely to be offered.
Enness can arrange multi-million-pound bridging deals if your property and financial background supports this, and many lenders will be happy to offer large bridging loans of $1 million or more secured against Bahamian property.
