Commercial Property Refinancing

 In today’s market many business owners are looking to refinance their existing commercial property loans to try and obtain more favorable terms.

 Some owners choose to take a lower interest rate which results in lower payments, while still maintaining their current amortization schedule. Others will choose to continue to make the same current payment even with  a lower interest rate resulting in a more rapid amortization.

 Is one option better than the other? In both cases the owner will wind up paying less in interest throughout the term of the loan. One factor that property owners need to evaluate is what payment are they comfortable paying. Some owners use the longer amortization to maximize the interest expense for tax purposes. Others prefer to pay off debt as quickly as possible which in turn maximizes their cash flow.

SBA Lending

Posted on April 15, 2011. Filed under: Kevin Johnsrud |

Denmark State Bank is proud to participate within the SBA lending programs. SBA stands for small business administration and the lending programs it offers benefits both the customer and the lending institution. For the banks, a guaranty on a portion of the total loan amount reduces the risk a lending institution takes on. For the customer, the various programs can reduce monthly payments by amortizing (stretching) payments out over a longer period of time and along with the guaranty reduces the risk the bank will take on.

Various programs exist depending on the need of the customer. There are also special programs available to veterans. The SBA programs are ideal for customers who are looking at starting a business, expanding an existing business, refinancing existing business debt, or purchasing an existing business.

Denmark State Bank is excited to take part in the SBA lending programs and feel we can help both existing and new customers meet their financial needs by offering this service and programs.
