Owner, Viks Restaurant & Wholesale
Amod Chopra owner of Vik's Restaurant & Wholesale in Berkeley California, has five SBA 504 loans with TMC Financing and his business is currently thriving. In 2012, Chopra secured his first SBA 504 loan to purchase his wholesale unit, for which he distributes goods and materials to other Indian restaurants in the area. As his business grew, Chopra utilized the 504 program to buy properties for his retail unit, his restaurant, and an adjacent parking lot. Vik's also took advantage of TMC Financing's SBA 504 Refinance Program which allowed Chopra to refinance an existing commercial real estate loan for lower payments and better terms. He was also able to access cash that was trapped up in his real estate.
Why Small Business Owners Choose SBA 504 Program?
10% minimum down payment
Below market, fixed interest rates
Stability & equity
Support from a CDC (Certified Development Company)
Finance equipment or construction
10% down payment
The low 10 percent down payment is one of the biggest attractions of the 504 program.
Conventional loans often require a 20-40 percent down payment, an unattainable figure for many business owners.
With the 504 loan’s minimal down payment, businesses retain precious working capital.
Below Market, fixed Interest rates
Conventional loans typically come with variable or unpredictable interest rates.
The interest rate on the SBA 504 is below-market, long-term and fixed.
The 504 rate is unaffected by market instability and guarantees fixed, low monthly payments for the entire 25-year term, with no final balloon payment.
Stability & Equity
With rising rents and limited commercial space, providing a stable and permanent operating location can be crucial to the survival of a small business.
Utilizing the 504 Loan Program to purchase real estate can provide a business owner stability in addition to accumulated equity.
Traditional lenders and conventional financing often come with risky and unpredictable loan terms. With the 504 program, business owners are able to pay for their facility over a long term and enjoy predictable monthly payments.
Every monthly payment is a contribution to your future! This will provide a nice nest egg.
504 Loan comes with a team of advocates
A CDC is a nonprofit corporation built to support economic development within its community through the SBA 504 Loan Program.
CDCs are regulated by the SBA and strive to be the borrower’s advocate throughout the life of the loan.
CDCs complete the paperwork and guide the borrower through the entire loan process. TMC Financing is the #1 SBA 504 lender in the nation.
