The shutdown was a 35-day roller coaster for business owners trying to buy commercial real estate. It’s likely some of your clients were caught up in that. We’ve never worked so hard in January but were excited to put in those hours and help save deals for our referral partners’ clients.

American Banker asked me to weigh in on the shutdown and resulting backlog of SBA loan applications. This is a quick read of the article as posted on Ecommerce Daily News. It explains what can actually be done to keep deals from going off the cliff.

Even though the shutdown has ended, the backlog of approvals is still putting many deals in jeopardy. As a non-bank lender with a wealth of experience, Fountainhead will continue to close even unauthorized SBA 504 loans and save business owners from losing hard deposits and real estate opportunities.
