Special Purpose Properties


The SBA has identified 27 different types of properties that it considers to be special use properties.  These properties can still be financed with a 504 loan; they just require an additional 5% down which reduces the SBA portion of the loan.  The list below is very specific; however, if you are thinking about an SBA loan and are not sure if your project is considered special purpose, please give us a call and we will be glad to discuss your specific circumstances.
