​​​​​​​Compass Bridge Loans


​​​​​​​Compass Bridge Loan Services gives you the financial flexibility to make an offer on your next home without waiting for your current one to sell.*

This is a big deal folks! Work with us to sell your current home and get up to six months of your bridge loan payments and other associated costs fronted. This is an incredible opportunity AND an exclusive offering for Compass clients, regardless of the lender you use.⁠

"Bridge Loan Services as an investment in the overall real estate ecosystem. Countless homeowners would move tomorrow if only they had the liquidity to do so. By temporarily providing that liquidity, we’re unlocking an entirely new group of home buyers." - Robert Reffkin

Already working with a lender you love? No problem. This unique solution lets you choose the provider that works best for you.

Could a bridge loan be right for you? If you answer 'yes' to any of the following questions, it just might be.
​​​​​​​

Is Your Money Tied Up in Your Current Home?


If you need to move but your money is tied up in the equity of your current house, a bridge loan can help you secure funding to facilitate the transition to a new home - like for a down payment or mortgage payments. Once your current home sells, you'll use the proceeds to pay the bridge loan back.

Do you need to move within a specific timeframe?

​​​​​​​If you're relocating for a new job or other reason, a bridge loan can afford you the freedom to move on your own terms and secure a new house when you need to, without having to wait for your old home to sell.

Compass Concierge
​​​​​​​


What if you could sell your home faster, at a higher price, without spending upfront on home improvements? The Compass Concierge program is the latest in a suite of services designed to prepare your home for the market. From deep-cleaning to cosmetic improvements to staging, we will work together to assess opportunities to elevate your home's value.

We will cover the upfront costs associated with home-selling improvements and collect a fee for the services rendered at the time of the property’s closing.

Recently in Mar Vista, we transformed an architectural gem back to its glory before it hit the market, click here to learn more about the process.

With so many listings out there and so many different ways to communicate, it’s not easy to stay on the same page. That’s why Compass created Collections, a visual online workspace for us to collaborate, discuss, and monitor the market in real time.

Compass Coming Soon
​​​​​​​


A Coming Soon listing is a home that is not yet officially on the market but is initially displayed exclusively on Compass prior to going live on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

​​​​​​​Pre-marketing a listing is a powerful way to build up interest and demand, gain more exposure and gather valuable feedback. A Coming Soon will create excitement and anticipation for a property so when it officially comes to the market, you can expect multiple private showings and open house turnout.

During the Coming Soon period, sellers and their agents can gain valuable feedback from the market on elements like pricing, photos and positioning of the property. When it’s time to go live, your listing will be perfectly priced and positioned to sell quickly.

Curious about any of these offerings? We’re happy to answer any questions you may have. Contact us today: team@davisandburns.com
