Navigate Commercial Real Estate Financing with INSIGNIA Financial Services and SBA Loans
The Small Business Administration (SBA) offers a variety of commercial real estate loan options to help businesses acquire or expand their properties. As SBA lending experts, INSIGNIA Financial Services can guide you through the financing process and match you with the most suitable loan program for your specific needs.
Understanding SBA Loan Programs
The SBA’s two primary commercial real estate loan programs, 7(a) and 504, each offer unique advantages tailored to different business requirements.
SBA 7(a) Loans: Versatility for Diverse Business Needs
The SBA 7(a) loan program is a versatile financing solution for a wide range of business objectives, including:
- New construction
- Acquisition and expansion
- Working capital
- Refinancing existing debt
This program is particularly well-suited for businesses seeking to purchase a business along with commercial real estate and working capital. SBA 7(a) loans can also provide working capital and interest reserves to help cover payments during lease-up periods in certain project types.
SBA 504 Loans: Optimized for Large-Scale Projects
The SBA’s 504 program is designed to finance large-scale projects involving new construction, acquisition of commercial real estate, or significant equipment purchases for small businesses. Unlike the 7(a) program, the 504 program does not directly provide working capital or interest reserves.
INSIGNIA Financial Services: Your SBA Loan Partner
INSIGNIA Financial Services has long-standing relationships with capital sources that hold Preferred Lender Status (PLP) with the SBA for the 7(a) loan program, enabling final credit decisions without prior SBA approval. This streamlined process expedites loan approvals and gets your funding in hand faster.
Cash Flow: The Cornerstone of Commercial Real Estate Loans
At INSIGNIA Financial Services, we prioritize the cash flow of your business as the primary determinant of loan eligibility. This cash flow-centric approach ensures that your business has the financial strength to support the loan obligations and achieve its growth objectives.
Determining the Right SBA Loan Program for Your Business
While independent research is valuable, INSIGNIA Financial Services strongly encourages consulting with an experienced lender. Our loan experts will thoroughly assess your business goals, financial status, and project requirements to guide you towards the most suitable SBA loan program.
