SBA 7(a) Loan Program

An SBA 7a Loan is a great tool for a business to use when considering purchasing, building or renovating owner-occupied commercial real estate. The SBA 7a Loan can also be used for non-real estate practice only transactions, such as start-up, acquisition or expansion. With loan limits ranging from $350K to $5 Million, many practice loan requests will fall into this range and 1st Med Financial is here to help.

An SBA 7a Loan can be used for the following:

Purchase, Remodel or Expand your practice
Refinance or Consolidate practice Debt
Purchase or Refinance Equipment Debt
Construct, Expand or Improve Commercial Real Estate
Purchase or Refinance Commercial Real Estate
Working capital needs

In order for your practice to meet the eligibility requirements for a SBA 7a Loan, it must be for-profit and located in the United States with a net worth less than $15 Million and/or net income after taxes of less than $5 Million. If you are using the fund for real estate, you must occupy or plan to occupy 51% of the real estate as SBA funds are not for investment properties

Recent Testimonial

"We recently closed a practice acquisition loan and a real estate loan with Mike Furlong and 1st Med Financial. Having shopped the deal with several local banks and other medical lending institutions, we knew that the conditions and circumstances of the deal were far from ideal.

Mike provided the insight and experienced needed to not only obtain financing, but at rates and terms that far surpassed our expectations. Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for medical financing."
