You should approach small-business-loan shopping just as you would shopping for a car, says Suzanne Darden, a business consultant at the Alabama Small Business Development Center. Once you determine which type of lender and financing vehicle are right for you, compare two or three similar options based on annual percentage rate (total borrowing cost) and terms. Of the loans you qualify for, choose the one with the lowest APR, as long as you are able to handle the loan’s regular payments.

I was able to make the payments but started having trouble in 2009 with the recession. I have been in and out of Liquidation. I am trying to get another workout with them but it seems they are ready to drop to Treasury. I am scared of Foreclosure. I have 4 properties tied to the SBA loans, 3 properties SBA is in second position behind mortgage companies, Carrington and Wells Fargo but my home I have a second of 80k from SLS that was not part of the refi from SBA… Can they foreclose, they spoke to me about charge off but I figured since they were in first position on the home I built twice they would come after it… I have not been able to sleep, I am so worried, I owed 280k when the storm hit and now I owe close to 500k and the house is worth around 330,000….

Plus, banks don’t want to waste their time filling out lengthy SBA loan applications if they are confident you’ll get denied because of a low FICO SBSS score.

The SBA doesn’t make loans itself, but rather establishes guidelines for loans that it will guarantee made by a range of partners, such as banks and other lenders, economic development organizations, and micro-enterprise lenders. By guaranteeing that the loans these institutions make to small business will be repaid, the federal government diminishes some of the risk to financial institutions so that they are more likely to consider lending to small businesses — businesses they likely would have turned down without those guarantees. (See “Does the SBA Still Matter?” by Robb Mandelbaum, May 2007.)
