LONG TERM FIXED FINANCING
CDC504/Certified Development Company Loan Program.
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) was created in 1953 to help entrepreneurs and small businesses start, grow, expand, and/or recover their businesses. Through their Certified Development Company (CDC) partners, the SBA can provide low interest rates, longer loan repayment terms, and in most cases, a smaller down payment compared to traditional business loans one might get at other financial institutions. These CDC lending products are frequently referred to as SBA 504 loans.
504 Capital Corporation is a non-profit CDC organization that was founded in 1983 with the mission to assist small businesses and help them grow, promoting strong overall economic prosperity. We work with the SBA and CDC lenders to connect them with small business owners looking for financing through CDC business loans. We handle all the paperwork, walk borrower’s through every step of the way, and answer any questions. We also operate under an Accredited Lenders Program (ALP) designation, which means we have increased authority to process, close, and service SBA loans, and we can even expedite the process to help push a borrower’s application through more quickly.
For small businesses, SBA 504 loans can be used for the purchase of land or an existing building for constructing a new facility or renovating an existing one, to make site improvements, to finance soft costs and professional fees, and/or to buy long-term machinery or equipment. Benefits include:
- Easy Financing.
- Better Rates.
- Longer Terms.
While conventional loans generally required a 20-30% down payment, an SBA 504 Loan can provide up to 90% loan-to-cost financing through a 40% contribution from the SBA and 50% coming from a certified lender.
Many conventional commercial loans provide variable interest rates, which can be extremely tough on small business under unfavorable market conditions. A CDC loan not only provides a low, fixed rate, it offers the ability to get long-term financing
Repayment schedules for CDC loans are generally longer than traditional loans, offering terms from 10 to 25 years. They also do not require any balloon payments at the end of the term.
For lenders looking to add CDC small business financing to their portfolio of products they offer, we bring the borrowers to them. Again, as the intermediary between lenders and borrowers, we handle all of the loan processing, so a financial institution such as a traditional bank or credit union can offer SBA 504 loans without needed to hire and train additional staff to originate loans or service them. It’s an easy way bring in additional revenue without needing to worry about loan defaults since the loans are guaranteed by the SBA.
In other words, SBA 504 loans are a great deal for both lenders and borrowers.
