Small Business Administration (SBA) loans in Chesapeake.
Entrepreneurs wanting to start a business in Chesapeake and small business owners looking to expand their operations have a fantastic loan option from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBA is an independent agency of the federal government that was created in 1953 to aid, counsel, assist, and protect the interests of small business owners. The idea behind creating the SBA was to promote overall economic development by making it easier for small businesses to have easier access to financing to encourage business growth and the creation of jobs.
One of the most popular products the SBA offers is called an SBA 504 loan. These loans provide long-term, fixed rates for purchasing new land or an existing building for renovation, making site improvements, and buying machinery or equipment. The loan can generate sales or customer traffic for your business and maximize cash flow.
Loans are available through a Certified Development Company (CDC) that works as an intermediary between lenders and borrowers. CDCs are experts in SBA loan products and have the authority to process, close, and service SBA 504 loans.

SBA 504 loans are beneficial to both sides. For small businesses looking for financing, they offer:
- Easy Financing
Borrowers generally only need a 10 percent down payment to secure an SBA 504 loan, compared with 20-30 percent usually required for conventional business loans offered by financial institutions such as banks or credit unions.
- Better Rates
Unlike traditional commercial loans, SBA 504 loans provide fixed interest rates and no balloon payments at the end of the loan term. The rates also tend to be lower because the SBA partially guarantees the loans.
- Longer Terms
Extended loan terms can mean lower monthly payments, which is especially beneficial for fledgling small businesses trying to create a customer base. By channeling more monthly funds into marketing/advertising and keeping cash flow positive, longer loan terms help companies to build slowly and powerfully.
- Larger Loans
SBA 504 loans can range from as little as $125,000 to as big as $20 million. But you will still need a 10 percent down payment to insure the total loan amount.
For lenders, SBA 504 loans can provide an additional revenue stream for a financial institution or private lender without needing other people to service the loan. Certified Development Companies bring you the borrowers, take care of all the loan processing, and serve the borrower from beginning to closing.
