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.

What Our Clients Have To Say

  • First, let me take a minute to say Thank You! The time and effort you and your team took to get me the financing I needed for my buy-out, acquisition and consolidation was, to say the least, beyond awesome. I was treated by everyone as if we were long lost best friends.

    Through the entire process, it felt as though getting this done was a personal task....not a job. Embarrassingly enough, I had come to you once, but decided to go to my bank "because they knew me". They were terrible, to put it nicely.

    Bottom line, I'm where I am today with my practice because of you.
