A record breaking quarter

A record-breaking Q1 and a big thank you…

We just had our best quarter ever. Technically. You see, 2012 was a year for the record books, but with an asterisk. That’s when the SBA 504 refinance program was in effect (the first go ‘round), and the number of refi loans we were able to do really goosed our lending totals that year.

Green Loans with the SBA 504 Loan

Going Green with the SBA 504 Loan

Under the SBA’s Green 504 provision, projects deemed green or environmentally-friendly are subject to a $5.5 million cap per project. Again, this is on the SBA-guaranteed second mortgage piece. This really opens up the possibilities for small business owners. Without an aggregate cap, entrepreneurs can go back to the well so to speak multiple times to grow and expand their businesses — opening new locations, building new facilities, renovating multiple facilities, etc.
