To be eligible for the SBA 504 program, each business must meet the following criteria:

  • Operate as a “for profit” business.
  • Be considered a “small business” under SBA’s size standards:
    • Under the 504 Program, the business qualifies as small if it does not have a tangible net worth more than $15 million and does not have an average net income more than $5 million after federal taxes for the preceding two years.
    • If these standards are exceeded, the business can still qualify for the program by meeting other SBA size standards based on either the number of employees or annual revenue, depending upon the industry.

Lender's Benefits

Reduced Risk

SBA is a secondary lender, providing a direct loan in a subordinate lien position improving the bank's collateral position and reducing risk. While the SBA 7(a) Guarantee program is a a government restricted loan, the SBA 504 is not. BLP staff handles all of the government paperwork and servicing.

Increase Small Business Lending

The bank's exposure is reduced by partnering with SBA on the financing of a project. By mitigating their risk through these program, banks can provide more loans and offer opportunities to more businesses. Additionally, banks can provide more loans to the same business, where legal lending limits may be constraining.

Obtain CRA Credit

Banks can potentially obtain CRA credits by participating in one of our lending programs.

Increase Portfolio Size

We structure, evaluate, process and service SBA loans which cannot be done conventionally.

Borrower's Benefits

Lower Down Payment

The borrower may provide a cash down payment as low as 10% of the total funding needs, allowing them to save their cash for other business needs.

Fixed Rate

The borrowers do not have the risk of an increase in the interest rate on the SBA loan making long-term planning for the business easier because borrowers know the amount of their mortgage payments for the next 20 years.

Long Term

SBA 504 loans are made for 10, 20 or 25 year terms. Longer terms result in lower monthly payments for the borrower without the concern of balloon payments due prior to the loan maturity.

Low Interest Rates

The long-term, competitive interest rate results in savings over the life of the loan.
