Named after section 7(a) of the Small Business Act, these are the most basic and frequently used type of SBA loans. The maximum loan amount is typically $2 million, and all owners of 20% or more are required to personally guarantee the loan. SBA provides up to a 75% guaranty on 7(a) loans in excess of $150,000.
Certified Development Company (504) Loans
A financing tool for economic development within a community, these long-term, fixed-rate loans provide financing for major fixed assets, such as land and buildings. The 504 Program cannot be used for working capital or inventory, consolidating or repaying debt, or refinancing.
The 504's maximum guarantee is normally $1 million, however it may go as high as $1.3 million if certain criteria are met. Typically, a bank may finance up to 50% of the project with a first mortgage lien over the property being financed, while a 504 will lend up to 40% of the project with a second mortgage lien over the property. The owner injects a minimum of 10% cash equity to fund the remaining project costs.
