SBA 504 Loans 
 
Regents Bank participates in the Small Business Administrations’ 504 Loan Program. As a premier SBA 504 lender, we have the expertise to structure deals at competitive pricing for a full range of owner-occupied properties. 
 
Business owners wishing to purchase real estate for their company’s operations have an invaluable resource in the SBA 504 loan program. 504 loans are available to businesses in order to purchase or renovate existing buildings or to purchase land and construct a building from the ground up. The applicant is only required to put 10 percent down on the purchase of the property he or she wants to acquire for the business. The financial institution provides 50 percent of the loan funding, while the SBA provides 40 percent through our partnerships with non-profit Certified Development Companies. 
 
In providing a 504 loan, Regents Bank works with your local Certified Development Corporation (CDC). Regents Bank approves its portion of the financing request, and the CDC works with the SBA to approve the SBA portion of the request. Since the SBA portion of the financing request is a debenture that must be arranged with the financial markets, the SBA funds are often not available until after the asset has been purchased. In order to fill this gap in the SBA financing, Regents Bank provides interim financing for the SBA debenture amount so that your purchase transaction is not delayed.

                                projection) equipment. Businesses must meet SBA guidelines.                            Backed by the SBA, the 504 loan generally is  funded from
