What Are the Differences Between SBA 7(a) Loans and SBA 504 Loans?

504 loans and 7(a) loans are two of the most popular SBA lending programs. However, there are some important differences between them. Below are just a few of the main differences between the two loans:

While 7(a) loans are capped at $5 million, 504 SBA loans can range from $25,000 to and excess of $20 million.

The interest rates on a 504 loan are fixed, while 7(a) loans can be variable (although there are some fixed-rates options as well).

Finally, the down payment for a 504 loan is typically 10 percent and required no additional collateral.

By contrast, with 7(a) loans the minimum down payment is 10 percent would typically require additional collateral to be pledged or to avoid doing so, additional down payment would be required.

Pre-Payment penalties also differ in that SBA 504 loans have a 10-year prepayment penalty time frame while 7(a) loans only have a 3-year prepayment penalty time horizon.
