Bridge Financing in Ontario explained:

You are the homeowner of 250 Sports Fan Way which is currently on the market for sale.  You accept an unconditional offer from a buyer for your current property, which has a closing date of December 15 for $1,000,000.00. The home has no mortgage on it therefore you own the property free and clear.

On the same day of accepting the offer on your property you place an offer to purchase a new condo at 65 Grocery Lane for $600,000.00, which is accepted with a closing date of October 15. Your supposed to take possession 61 days before the closing date of your existing home.

In order to close on your new purchase, you’ll need $600,000.00 on your closing date (October 15), however you won’t receive the proceed from your sale until December 15. What can you do?
