- Ninety – Percent (90%) Loan to Cost Financing
- Long Term Fixed Interest Rates that are BELOW MARKET
- Longer Term Amortizations – Lower Payments
- Fully Assumable Loan
A typical 504 loan structure might look like this, according to the SBA:
A 504 project includes a loan secured with a senior lien from a private-sector lender covering up to 50 percent of the project cost, a loan secured with a junior lien from the CDC (backed by a 100 percent SBA-guaranteed debenture) covering up to 40 percent of the cost, and a contribution of at least 10 percent equity from the small business being helped.
Basically this means that a bank will lend 50% of the purchase price, the SBA/CDC will lend 40% of the purchase price and the borrower comes in with a 10% down payment.
Up to $5million, or up to $5.5 million for manufacturing companies. The minimum debenture amount is $50,000. There are no restrictions on the total project size.
The term for real estate financing is 20 years and the term for machinery and equipment financing is 10 years. A minimum term of 10 years is required from the first trust lender on real estate financing and 7 years for machinery and equipment.
One-time fees on the SBA 504 loan total approximately 2.75% of the amount of the 504 financing. These fees are included in the loan, so that the out of pocket cash disbursements for the borrower are minimized.
