Acquiring a Business?

Buying or starting a business, come talk to us. We are committed to investing in small business locally, and would love to work with you to help you realize your dreams.

Expanding a Business?

If you are running a business and things are good, they might be even better if you had a bigger space, a larger advertising budget, or more employees. We are committed to finding ways to help your business grow profitably. As this growth occurs, you may need additional capital in the form of an Expansion Loan to finance your expansion plans.

Purchase needed business assets – such as machinery, vehicles, computers and furnishings – over a period of time with Machinery or Equipment loans.

Real Estate/Construction

Whether your company’s financial needs are large or small, an experienced business lender can provide prompt solutions with competitive rates, and flexible payment schedules.

Now you can purchase, construct, or refinance real estate with one of the following:

  • Owner-Occupied Commercial Construction Loans
  • Permanent Commercial Real Estate Loans
  • Investment Real Estate

Lines of Credit

If you need short-term cash for your business to fund receivables, fluctuations in a seasonal business, or other pressing needs for working capital, a line of credit may be the best option. With this type of loan, you typically use only what you need as you need it, as opposed to a business term loan that arrives in one lump sum. Lines of credit are generally collateralized. Come talk to us and let us see how we can help your business run smoothly all year.
