A bridge loan, or a swing loan, is a short-term real estate loan option for small businesses that require immediate financing to cover existing or unexpected expenses.
Business Line of Credit
A business line of credit gives small business owners access to a certain amount of money, which can be borrowed, repaid, and borrowed again.
Business Term Loan
A business term loan provides small business owners with a lump sum of cash that is paid back on a fixed schedule over a set period of time (i.e., a loan "term").

We're Trusted By Small Businesses Like Yours
We were in escrow for a commercial purchase and were working with another broker who was not very responsive. Our closing timeframe was fast approaching. Fortunately, a colleague suggested we call 1st Capital Financial. Liza and her team took over and closed the transaction before the deadline. They even got us a better offer!
I was expanding my business and I needed a SBA loan. After calling around to different lenders, I spoke with the President of 1st Capital. She was extremely knowledgeable, and she provided me with some great insights. I have been referring other franchisees to them ever since!
