Why SBA?

- Advantages for Borrower:

  1. Higher up to 90% LTV
  2. No collateral
  3. Less than perfect borrower. Most credit problems may be compensated for by pledging sufficient collateral to secure the loan.
  4. For working capital loans lenders can provide loans to support increased business, relocate an existing operation, reduce account payable, etc. Repayments up to 7 years are available. You can obtain the capital you need without restrictive short repayment requirements.
  5. A borrower may use the proceeds of one SBA loan to purchase real estate, renovate it, purchase a business to occupy it, and purchase inventory and equipment to operate with.
  6. SBA offers loans to businesses that handle exports to foreign countries.
  7. SBA offers loans to acquire machinery and equipment, purchase additional inventory, expand an existing operation, or simply for working capital to help manage the day to day operations of the business.
  8. Practically any new business venture (or acquisition of the existing business) is eligible for an SBA loan, including many types of franchises, such as Dunkin Donuts, Subway, Blimpies, and etc. SBA regulations require the borrower to contribute a minimum of 10% of the overall acquisition price for real estate and 10%  of the acquisition price of the tangible assets of a business.

-  Advantages for Lender:

  1. Large portion of loan is guaranteed by SBA
  2. May be sold in the secondary market for immediate income
  3. Additional opportunity for other loan products
