So we have found a beautiful semi rural property which we could possibly buy. We would have to commit to it and exchange contracts before we sold our current house so there is a risk of having to use bridging finance (this would add about $1200 a fortnight onto our mortgage until we sold our house. I just don’t know what to do…

If our house sells within a 4-6 week period there would be no issues at all and we could just settle everything at the same time, but if it doesn’t, we get stuck with bridging until it does!

We have always dreamed of a tree change but I just don’t know if its worth the risk as we cant afford to add too much on our loan as we would be right on our limit with the new place.

Ahhhhhh I wish I knew a good psychic!

  • So what did you do?


  • very risky but i am not you and i don’t know details. take the safest option


  • i like reading these stories it s fun


  • Do your research about sales and market time for your area.


  • Don’t take a big risk. My husband friends stuck in that situation too. Anyway, wish you luck.


  • It’s a big risk. Can you put a longer contract on the other place ? Are houses selling in your area at the moment?

    Good luck
