Not many people are aware that the SBA provides low-interest commercial real estate financing in the form of SBA 504 loans. While SBA 504 loans are not available for apartment properties, they are available for commercial, owner occupied properties such as day cares, hotels, office buildings, retail buildings and more. To quality, a property must be more than 51% owner occupied. In addition to SBA 504 loans, the SBA also offers SBA 7a loans which offer significantly more flexibility. Like 504 loans, SBA 7(a) loans can be used for the acquisition or refinancing commercial real estate, but they can also be utilized for working capital, equipment financing and other purposes.
