An SBA 7a Loan is a great tool for a business to use when considering purchasing, building or renovating owner-occupied commercial real estate. The SBA 7a Loan can also be used for non-real estate business only transactions, such as start-up, acquisition or expansion. With loan limits ranging from $350K to $5 Million, many business loan requests will fall into this range and 1st Commercial Lending is here to help.

An SBA 7a Loan can be used for the following:

  • Purchase, Remodel or Expand your business
  • Refinance or Consolidate business Debt
  • Purchase or Refinance Equipment Debt
  • Construct, Expand or Improve Commercial Real Estate
  • Purchase or Refinance Commercial Real Estate
  • Working capital needs

In order for your business to meet the eligibility requirements for a SBA 7a Loan, it must be for-profit and located in the United States with a net worth less than $15 Million and/or net income after taxes of less than $5 Million. If you are using the fund for real estate, you must occupy or plan to occupy 51% of the real estate as SBA funds are not for investment properties.

What Our Clients Have To Say

  • 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.
