Chicago SBA Loans

Why Is a Valuation Necessary for a SBA Loan?

For many years, the SBA (Small Business Administration) has been a source of financing for small businesses throughout the country. At one time, it was considered to be a much more simple and easy process to get approved for one of these loans. However, due to economic conditions and a number of other factors, the process of getting funds to finance your business, real estate venture, or capital expansion has become much more challenging.

There are a number of provisions which the SBA included in its SOP (standard operating procedures), one of which requires that you have a business valuation appraisal from a qualified appraiser before being approved for an SBA loan. Fortunately, our team at Gibraltar Business Valuations is here to assist you.

There are several different loan programs offered by the SBA, including:

  • General small business loans

  • Real estate and equipment loans

Depending on the type of loan you are pursuing, there may be different requirements involved. It is always good to be as informed as possible on the steps needed for your particular business goals.

Thoroughly & Expertly Prepared Business Valuations

The main reason of having a Chicago business valuation prepared for an SBA loan is to help determine whether the acquisition price of a business is fair. Of course, the procedure involved in a valuation for a small or family-owned and operated business is much different than that for a larger corporate company. The same general concepts may apply, but the methods and data included must be adapted and adjusted appropriately. At Gibraltar Business Valuations, we do our research in order to provide you with the well-prepared valuation that meets your business needs.
