SBA 504: Help For Veterans Seeking Commercial Real Estate Capital

US flag

This Veterans Day, let’s remember that servicepeople in the commercial real estate industry have a few extra benefits when it comes to obtaining capital and credit. In a tight market for capital, that can make all the difference at the deal table — especially for owner-occupiers.

SBA 504

The Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 program offers US military veterans and service disabled veterans commercial financing for purchase of real estate that will house your business, expand, retrofit, renovate or remodel an existing facility. Funds are also applicable  for refinance of an existing commercial loan as part of a business expansion.

Some terms of eligibility: A veteran-owned business is a business where at least 51% is owned by one or more veterans.

Not Limited To 504

You can browse the length and breadth of business advantages offered to veterans at the multi-departmental government Under its Resources For Veterans page, you can find a long list of benefits including business outreach, assistance in working with federal agencies, and the Center For Veterans Enterprise.

The list doesn’t stop there.  CVE and other sites provide a wealth of information for vets in business and commercial real estate: an enduring government thank-you for those who answered the call to service.

    Do you seek funding and the bank you deal on a day to day basis has refused to help you? You might qualify for our new concept and get funded with our help.

    Our focus is on socially responsible, green, energy producing projects. The facility is however not limited to these basics, as long as you have a strong management team, a viable business plan, and exceptional growth potential. We also enable finance for growth and consider any commercial business with the potential for a high ROI already within the first year. And we can work with any legal financial transaction offering an above average return on investment.

    If your requirement is within these basics, please let us have your answer to this simple question: “Would your own bank provide you with finance, if we guarantee for your loan through Deutsche Bank?”

    If you see chances to get funded on that basis, then you should tell us how much money you seek. We will engineer a solution for your immediate funding requirement and explain how you can put this concept to work for you. Send an email directly to your [email protected] now!
