Let's Go Back to Basics!
The SBA 504 Loan program is an economic development tool that provides eligible small businesses long-term, fixed rate financing while promoting business growth and job creation/retention. Loans through the 504 Program can finance up to 90 percent (504 Loan + Third Party Lender Loan) of a project's cost for qualifying businesses, preserving cash flow during a longer repayment term. It also reduces the risk to lenders through a shared financing structure.

An example of a typical/standard 504 project is as follows:

  • Bank term must be 10 years (can reprice anytime). Amortization does not need to match SBA term of 25 years;
  • 40% is SBA's max contribution;
  • The borrower qualifies for 10% down because they are an existing business (operating for more than 2 years), and the building is considered multi-use;
  • The borrower meets the occupancy eligibility, which requires the operating company to occupy at least 51% of the total square footage.

Advantage to Borrower:

  • Low down payment of 10%;
  • Fixed rate on 40% of the project for 25 years;
  • Rent savings by purchasing the building vs. continuing to rent.
