The SBA 504 Loan Program

When it comes to purchasing your own building the SBA504 is considered one of the most desirable ways to achieve your goal of obtaining the combination of maximum leverage with incredibly competitive rates.

SBA 504 loans are designed to help small businesses owners purchase, construct or improve an existing commercial building as well as buy and install heavy machinery and equipment.

Advantages of a SBA 504 Loan:

  • Long term fixed rate product. SBA504 loans provide Borrowers with a below market 20yr fixed rate second mortgage. BREAKING NEWS: Effective May-June 2018 the SBA504 fixed rate will increase to 25 years!!!
  • A low down payment allows the business to retain more capital in the business.
    Typical conventional bank loans require at least a 20% down payment. The SBA 504 loan program has a down payment minimum of 10% thus allowing your business to retain the additional 10% for future working capital. (Please note for special-use properties that a down payment is 15% to 20% may be required).
  • No balloon payments
  • The SBA 504 portion of your loan is government guaranteed. Therefore, unlike other loan programs, no additional collateral is required.
  • Closing costs such as appraisal fee, environmental fees, contingency fees can be included in the financing
  • Projected income consideration – The SBA can consider projected income of a business in addition to historical cash flows. This is particularly advantageous for growing businesses.

A SBA 504 loan has three participants (see chart below):

  • A 1st Mortgage Lender who provides a first trust deed loan for at least 50% of the total project cost. Arrow Mortgage, LLC offers one the widest variety of SBA 504 first mortgage programs in the industry.

  • A Small Business Owner who contributes a down payment of at least 10%of the total project cost. (Please note that this amount could be raised up to 15%-20% for start-up businesses, change of business ownership and/or in combination with single purpose properties)
