Ten Thousand Baby Boomers retire every day. And they own 40% of United States Small Businesses.

Comprising 24% of SBA loan dollars and 12% of the number of SBA loans, loans for financing existing businesses should be an important part of your SBA’s loan department strategy.

However, there are traps in approving and funding these loans. The Office of Inspector General warns lenders the highest incident of loan fraud is with biz aq loans. Biz Aq loans also have the highest incident of SBA lender errors in underwriting, closing and servicing — resulting in SBA 7(a) guaranty repairs and denials.

Since intangible “goodwill” is often a part of the purchase price it is difficult to approve financing for these transactions as most lack 100% collateral coverage for the loan amount.

Enter the SBA 7(a) guarantee to cover collateral shortfalls. And SBA 504 loans require less equity than conventional loans.

This is an excellent loan product that underwritten prudently creates an excellent earning asset for the lender, associated banking opportunities with the new owners and employees and retains or creates jobs for your local Main Street.
