SBA 504 Loan Program

Up to 90% financing for fixed asset projects with affordable rates and terms

Purchasing a building or a piece of large equipment is a significant investment for your business and it’s important to find an affordable loan. With the SBA 504 program, you can qualify for a low, fixed interest rate loan with a term of up to 25 years, and put as little as 10% down.

SBA loan programs are well-known for funding start-ups and less established businesses, but the SBA 504 loan program is different. It makes fixed asset purchases very affordable for businesses of all shapes and sizes so that they can invest in themselves and their communities.

What is an SBA 504 loan?

The SBA 504 loan program provides long-term, fixed rate financing of up to $5.5 million for major fixed assets, including owner-occupied real estate and heavy equipment. The program can also be used to refinance debt incurred for these types of purchases.

How it works

SBA 504 loans are unique because they are always used together with a bank loan to finance up to 90% of total project costs. Here’s how a typical 504 loan works:

  • A bank funds 50% of project costs with a conventional mortgage
  • Pursuit funds 40% of project costs with a 504 loan
  • You make a 10% down payment on the project

So, for a $1 million project, your bank loan would be $500,000, your loan with Pursuit would be $400,000 and your down payment would be $100,000.

If you’re already working with a bank, we’ll partner with them to blend SBA 504 into your financing plan. If you aren’t, we can help you find a bank that’s familiar with the SBA 504 loan program.
