What’s the difference between SBA 504 and conventional bank loans?

Differences for borrowers

Long-Term Financing
SBA 504 loans give you 20-year full-term, fixed-rate financing for lower, more predictable monthly payments. That makes your small business more affordable.

Lower Down Payment
With the SBA 504 program, a borrower can put as little as 10 to 20 percent down.

Differences for lenders

Credit Risk Mitigation
SBA 504 loans allow lenders to have senior lien position and a loan-to-value ratio of around 50 percent, which lowers collateral risk.

Management of Lending Limits
Overall lending limits can be well-managed by banks with SBA 504 loans. Smaller banks can handle larger projects while all banks can limit their exposure.

Increase in Customers
Lenders can strengthen core earnings and receive additional income from new customers with SBA 504 loans, as well as gain several new long-term banking relationships.
