And since we have the authority to make our own credit decisions, we can get you an answer quickly and won't drag you through the mud.
What documents do I need to provide?
There are several documents you will need to provide when applying for an SBA loan:
- Personal Background and Financial Statement
- Business Financial Statement
- Business Certificate/License
- Loan Application History
- 3 Years Income Tax Returns
- Business Plan Overview and History
- Business Lease
We understand that applying for an SBA loan can be overwhelming, which is why we will guide you through every step of the process and help properly present your loan request. Schedule a consultation with a LoanBud loan officer to review your documentation and make a plan.
What is the interest rate and term on my SBA commercial real estate loan?
The SBA caps the interest rate that lenders can charge which means it's usually below the market rate. Most SBA 7a loans are based on the prime rate plus a margin not to exceed 3.75%.
A typical bank loan comes with a 15-year repayment term, with balloon provisions that require refinancing every few years. SBA loans that include a real estate component can be repaid on a 25-year term, leading to lower monthly payments and not having balloon payment features.
How long is the process to get my SBA commercial real estate loan?
Funding is typically within 30-60 days from the receipt of the completed loan application, depending on the size and scope of the project. If you work with a non-PLP lender, the processing times will be much longer.
What is the minimum credit score for SBA commercial real estate loans?
SBA commercial real estate loans require a minimum FICO score of 650.
Can I use my SBA commercial real estate loan for other business expenses?
Yes! One of the great features of commercial SBA loans is the ability to include other business needs into your loan request, including funds for equipment, inventory, working capital, and more.
Does my business need to occupy the commercial real estate that’s being purchased with SBA financing?
Yes, SBA financing is only for owner-occupied businesses, which by definition means your business needs to occupy at least 51% of the total commercial space.
Can I lease parts of the commercial property that I purchased?
As long as your business occupies at least 51% of the space, you are able to rent out the remaining 49% and take advantage of the cash flow generated from leasing your property.
How do I get an SBA loan with 100% financing?
At LoanBud, we allow established businesses to purchase commercial real estate using an SBA loan with 100% financing. To get 100% financing your business must be in operation for at least 2 years and have a track record of making lease payments comparable to that of the new SBA loan payments. For startups we typically require a 10% down payment. Schedule a consultation to learn more about how you can get an SBA loan for commercial real estate with 0 down.
We Believe Small Business is the Backbone of America
We understand as a business owner you want to be successful and we know how hard you've already worked to get here. You want to build for your future by purchasing commercial property, but in order to achieve your goals, you'll need a loan. The problem is, conventional bank loans require high down payments of 25%.
We believe small businesses need cash to grow, and that depleting liquidity by requiring massive down payments is just wrong. That’s why we allow our customers to get SBA loans to purchase commercial property with up to 100% financing.
