Are you in the market for a new piece of commercial real estate for your new or existing small business? If so, you’ve found the right place to find information – and possibly the right loan product, too.
Chris Hurn, CEO and Co-Founder of Mercantile Capital Corporation, joins hosts Anita Campbell and Brent Leary to explain why the SBA 504 Loan Program has several advantages over ordinary, conventional loans for small business owners buying commercial real estate.
