The bridge loan can help with closing costs up to 10% of the home sale price with a maximum of $8,000. The bridge loan cannot pay the FHA mandatory 3.5% down payment. The FHA mandatory 3.5% down payment must come from the buyer or it can be gift funds. A seller cannot pay the 3.5% FHA down payment.
