SBA 504 loan program is for small business owners who want to replace the rent payment to their equity by purchasing owner-occupied commercial real estate. You can expect a below-market fixed rate, 25 years long term, and minimum down payment as low as 10%. Minimize your down payment with the SBA 504 loan and reserve fund for your working capital!

How It Works?

SBA 504 loan provides up to 90% financing to small business owners with the best rates and conditions

Commercial banks will give you loans with the terms they set with Third Party Lenders of SBA 504 loan program

CDC/SBA will fund at a low (lower than bank) and fixed rate for the entire duration of the loan, up to 25 years

This rate is typically about half the down payment of what the bank requires for conventional loans and for the SBA 7(a) program
