SBA Financing


If you’re looking to purchase any business under the $5 million mark, odds are you’ll find the best terms with a lender who finances though the SBA (Small Business Association). Acquiring an existing business offers the significant advantage of having a pre-established plan that may include critical components like a faithful customer base, precisely defined operating expenses, and a proficient team of employees. It’s important to keep in mind that virtually any business, regardless of its type, can be bought or sold.
