SBA-to-SBA Refinance

With rates rising multiple times in 2022 and 2023, thousands of floating rate SBA 7a borrowers will be hit with huge increases to their monthly payments. To moderate this risk, the SBA recently changed their guidelines and now allows SBA-to-SBA refinancing.

If your clients hold SBA 7a real estate loans, they may be eligible to refinance their floating rate debt with a low-cost, fixed-rate SBA 504 loan. These borrowers can potentially save tens of thousands of dollars on interest payments.

  • Move from a risky, floating rate coupon to a long-term, fixed rate coupon.
  • Lower overall interest rate to match the current SBA 504 25-year denture.
  • Pull cash out for working capital – up to 20% of the property’s current appraised value.
  • Most closing costs can be capitalized into the new SBA loan (leaving you with minimal out-of-pocket fees).
