SBA 504 Program

Important Information

The SBA 504 program provides a low-down payment, as low as 10%, for the purchase of commercial real estate. This loan includes three participants - the borrower, the bank, and the SBA lending partner. The borrower's down payment is as low as 10%; the bank funds 50% or more of the loan and the SBA funds up to 40% of the loan. The SBA seeks to ensure that businesses can plan their costs over time, thus the interest rate for the SBA portion of the loan is fixed for 10, 20, or 25 years and amortized over the same period to make certain that mortgage payments are affordable for growing businesses.
