An Insight Into SBA Loans

SBA 7(a) vs SBA 504

While working with small businesses for purchasing property, I am often asked what kind of financing is available. I respond, “Conventional of course, and this ‘thing’ called SBA.” For those of us that aren’t experienced in the difference, I’ve taken a clip from Wells Fargo SBA Lending webpage (click here for direct website or on photo) to better define this “thing” or rather, lets better refer to it as a Program. Small Business Administration (SBA) provides an opportunity for a small business to purchase property with lower down payments and long repayment terms. Below is the difference between the SBA 7(a) and SBA 504 programs that are available.


I’ve found that some companies have experienced an opportunity to purchase a property where they previously could not because of their use of this program.

So there you have it. A quick insight into the SBA loan programs.
