The 504 program offers excellent benefits for small and mid-sized business buying or refinancing commercial property, but the real beauty of the program is what it can do for you. For instance...
The 504 loan allows you to purchase property and finance the costs to:
In addition to the cost of the improvements you can also finance the closing costs and soft costs and if you are building on land that you already own you can use the land as equity for the transaction.
A huge number of property types, occupations and businesses are eligible for 504 financing including Attorneys, CPA's, Veterinarians, Manufacturing Facilities and Light Industrial Buildings and most "owner occupied" or "owner operated" businesses, so please contact us to see if you can qualify.
Below are some common applications (listed alphabetically) for the program and below is a link to ineligible businesses:

1. The program allows a down payment or equity of as little as 10%.
2. The loan allows you to finance most closing costs and soft costs reducing out of pocket expenses to approximately 10% of the project cost and creating a near 90% loan to cost transaction.
3. The 504 loan enables you to build wealth in commercial property which can be a more secure long term strategy than other investments.
4. The SBA 504 is a commercial mortgage that is fully amortized over a long term with "below market" rates allowing for lower payments.
Once approved, there is no balloon, re-qualifying or refinancing necessary later. This saves you the future costs of a refinance and removes any anxiety about qualifying for a new loan at a later date.
5. The 504 enables you to own commercial real estate and take advantage of the significant tax breaks that come with ownership.
6. The program has always had a moderate fee structure.
7. The SBA 504 allows you do to a purchase and renovation of a commercial property in one loan which allows you to "retrofit" an existing property to your needs.
504 loans also allow increased loan amounts for the following types of small and mid sized businesses:
1. New construction and existing buildings that incorporate Green construction into their buildings and facilities are now eligible for much larger 504 loans if they meet the public policy goal of a 10% decrease in energy consumption. Any business eligible for a 504 loan that adheres to green energy policies can now take advantage of the excellent terms afforded by the 504 and the total cost of a green project can be in the $13 to $14 million range.
The use of solar panels could be enough to qualify a building for this benefit.
2. Small and mid-sized businesses generating renewable energy or renewable fuels such as Solar Power, BioMass, Hydropower, Ocean Thermal, GeoThermal and Wind can now obtain a commercial mortgage loan to finance the purchase or construction of commercial real estate.
And power generation does not have to be your primary business. Any business that is eligible for the 504 program can utilize this significant enhancement.
3. Larger 504 loans are also available to small and mid sized businesses that work with qualified architects and engineers in creating a "green building using "sustainable design" as defined by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards and the Green Building Certificate Institute. In some cases there must be renewable energy production to qualify for maximum financing.
