• What Exactly Does Special Purpose Property Mean?

    Community Business Finance's 504 Loan Program is specifically designed for purchasing property or equipment with a low fixed interest rate and as little as 10% down. However, the SBA classifies some properties as a "special purpose property," which requires a 15% down payment on 504 loans. Borrowers planning to buy a special purpose property should be prepared for this additional expense.

  • The 504 Loan Program Works for Middle Market Businesses

    When you think "small business" do you imagine mom and pop stores with a handful of employees? Think again! Out of the 6 million US businesses with employees, over 98% are defined as a small business. This means that many companies that identify as middle market also qualify as a small business concern and are eligible for Community Business Finance's 504 Loan Program.
