Although no scenario is exactly the same, a typical business loan can easily close in as little 30 days. When real estate is involved in the transaction and an appraisal required, you are typically looking at 45 - 60 days. Working capital, Term Loans and Line Of Credit requests can fund quicker in as little as 5 - 7 days.
No Problem! 1st Commercial Lending has access to programs that require as little as 10% down. Depending on strength of practice and borrower creditworthiness, we can typically provide up to 90% business acquisition financing plus working capital to help with the transition period.
We hear this question often and can assist with both transaction types. An existing business is less risky for the lender as well as the business owner due to the established revenue and client base and built-up goodwill.

“1st Commercial Lending helped me in finding the best terms that I was able to get from any lender, and then saw the process through all the way to closing the deal, capably answering all of my questions and concerns along the way.
Of all of the lenders that I came across in this search, I found David to be the most knowledgeable and resourceful; he had thorough knowledge of his industry.
If you have a need for financing the purchase of an agency I would highly recommend that you put 1st Commercial Lending on the "short list" of lenders that you need to give strong consideration to working with.”
