What is an SBA Loan?
An SBA (Small Business Administration) loan is designed to help small to medium sized businesses obtain financing that is otherwise not available through regular commercial means. SBA loans are basically long term in nature: 7 years for working capital; 8 to 9 years for equipment; 10 years for leasehold improvements and 20 years for real estate.
Benefits of Using Lone Star Bank
SBA Loans may require less equity than conventional products, allowing the business to retain cash for daily operations or to further expand the business. Lower equity requirements enable small businesses and professionals to invest in business assets sooner than would be otherwise possible.
Longer terms (up to 20 years) result in a lower monthly payment, also conserving cash for operations and growth. All SBA guaranteed loans are fully amortizing with NO balloon payments. Borrowers will not be subjected to the risk or cost of refinancing the loan at maturity.
Competitive interest rates are based on Wall Street Journal Prime. These rates adjust quarterly and will change based on economic conditions.
No prepayment penalties on loans with a maturity of less than 15 years.
