Farmers Business Network Launches Bridge Loan

Farmers Business Network (FBN®) has launched a new bridge loan offering through FBN Finance to provide farmers with financing solutions. The new offering is designed to assist farmers facing tight timelines on potential land purchases and want to be as competitive as possible while negotiating better prices. The bridge loan is an expedited land loan that enables borrowers to secure financing and close on land purchases in as little as three weeks, making it an ideal solution for those who need to act quickly.

The bridge loan offering has several benefits that make it a powerful tool for farmers. For instance, the loan amounts can go up to $2,000,000, with up to a 60% loan-to-value ratio (LTV). As a result, this financing can help farmers achieve their land purchase goals faster and more flexibly. Moreover, the bridge loan has shorter term timelines, which means that borrowers can pay off their loans more quickly and efficiently. This, in turn, can help farmers to increase their cash flow and reinvest in their businesses.
