  • What are the main advantages of a 504 loan?

    low down-payment requirements long repayment terms (25 years) projected income is considered, not just historical cash flows collateral may be less critical in loan qualification decisions.
  • How is a 504 loan deal structured?

    Most 504-financed purchases are for office, retail or industrial buildings. SBA-504, fixed-rate loans finance 40 percent of the total purchase. A bank or other lender provides 50 percent and the business owner contributes a 10 percent down payment.
  • How long does it take to get a 504 loan done?

    Straight purchases usually require no more than 60 days. If construction is involved, this can extend the process. Construction and tenant improvements are typically financed via a bridge loan. The permanent 504 loan takes out the bridge loan.
  • What are the fees involved and how does prepayment work?

    The fees for a 504 loan, which are financed in the loan, are approximately 2.625%. There’s also a fee for legal review. Fees are negotiated for the 50% bank loan accompanying the 504 loan. Weighted average fees for both loans are 1.5%.
  • Can soft costs be included in a 504 loan?

    Yes, "soft costs" (e.g. appraisals, environmental, construction interest, closing costs) also can be financed in the 504 loan, allowing the small business to preserve working capital.
