Not many people are aware that the SBA provides for commercial real estate financing, but they do! SBA 504 loans are not available for apartment properties, rather they are for commercial, owner occupied properties such as day cares, hotels, office buildings, retail buildings and more. The property must be more than 51% owner occupied. The SBA also offers SBA 7a loans which offer more flexibility and can be used not just for acquiring or refinancing commercial real estate, but can also be used for working capital, equipment finance and other uses.
