How can you use our secured property loans?

As a business, you can come across investment opportunities to help you take your business to the next level, whether it is a new warehouse facility, a new office space or an expansion. Sparrow Loans can help you secure a property-backed business loan to secure your new investment.

As a private lender, we can approve your loan within 48 hours and settle within a few weeks.

Fulfil your business vision knowing that you have your funding sorted!

We can also help you with a property-backed business loan to upgrade the property and put some finishing touches right before selling your commercial property. With our capitalised property-backed business loans, you can plan and match your sales schedule to your loan term. You can take advantage of our flexible repayment structures to make your property look its best to achieve the best price in the market.

If you are looking to upgrade your fit-out or expand your business using equipment finance, you might find some requirements for the equipment’s age and condition that limit your choices. Releasing your property’s equity can be one way to overcome any restrictive conditions.

If you have any significant equipment upgrades, expansions, construction loans, fit-outs or equipment loan refinancing on the horizon, Sparrow Loans is ready to help.

Also, see our bridging loans if you need funding to purchase a commercial property.

Secured Property Loans FAQs

Have a question about Secured Property Loans? See some of our most common FAQ’s many customers ask us.

How is Sparrow Loans different to a standard bank loan?

Getting a business loan can often be a complex process, especially if you’re getting your loan through a typical bank. With a bank loan, you have to complete piles of paperwork overseen by bank staff who tend to take their time, including a business plan and past trading history; a complex task. And they still may decline your application. I bet you didn’t know that most banks reject about 74% of business loan applications! 

Sparrow Loans offers small businesses a fighting chance in the lender space by providing flexible lending options. Our main difference over banks is that we can often get you funding when banks have said no. Plus, we have a super-fast turnaround time. You can have your loan approval within 2 working days.

What is a secured business loan?

According to Wikipedia, with a secured loan, the borrower pledges an asset (such as plant, equipment, stock or vehicles) against the debt. In the case of Sparrow Loans, we use your property ( domestic or commercial ) as security against the loan. If the loan is not repaid or there is an issue with the monthly interest repayments the secured asset may be used to repay the loan ( which happens in very rare cases ).

Are there any hidden fees with your secured business loan?

Many Australian business lenders will charge fees, such as administration fees, direct debit fees, and early repayment fees. Even worse, they will never disclose their fees upfront or tell you about these fees once you sign on the dotted line. These fees can all add up and have a significant impact on your business cash flows.

At Sparrow Loans, we have absolutely no hidden fees, and best of all, there are no surprises down the track. We also want to clarify that there are no upfront fees which means there is no risk for you when applying for your secured business loan.

What do I need to be eligible for a commercial loan?

Your company must be at least 12 months old to access our loans. You must register for GST and domiciled in Australia with Australian directors. We lend against property located in New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland. We can consider property in metro locations up to 75% LVR and regional locations up to 65% LVR.

How much can my business borrow?

Sparrow Loans’ secured commercial loans are generally between $200,000 and $2,500,000. Our ideal loan size is between $500,000 and $1,000,000. Our secured business loans are suitable for small businesses or medium-sized businesses.

How much does a comemrcial loan cost?

The exact cost of your business loan will be dependent on a few factors such as the strength of the business, the location and status of the underlying security property, and the experience of the Directors. Our interest rates start from 6.50% per annum. There are other fees involved which include an Establishment Fee of 2.2% inclusive of GST when you accept and sign our loan offer (this is paid upon the disbursement of funds), a Legal Fee which is a third-party fee that can range from $2,000 to $5,000 depending on the complexity of the loan, and a Property Valuation Fee which is a third-party fee which starts from $500 and can vary depending on the location or use of the property and the valuer. The Establishment Fee and Legal Fee can be capitalised into the loan facility.

How long does the whole process take?

Sparrow Loans can approve your loan within 48 hours and give you the peace of mind you need to know you have your finance covered. Once your loan is approved you can proceed with the valuation report. On average, the valuation process may take anywhere between 2 to 5 business days with some commercial valuations taking longer. Most residential valuations take approximately 2 to 5 business days to complete with commercial valuations taking a bit longer. After the valuation report is completed, funds can be released to you within 2 business days (or the same day in some cases).

How do you assess my commercial loan application?

We assess your business based on its credit history, the strength of the business director/s, the business’ and director/s’ current financial position, and the underlying property security offered.

Do you check my business or personal profile with a credit agency?

Yes, we do. This is only done after you accept our loan offer and give us your consent to check your credit history.

What happens if my business is not required to register for GST?

We generally only lend to businesses that are registered for GST. If you are not registered for GST, we may still be able to assist you on a case-by-case basis. Please submit your loan application and we will let you know if we are able to help in your circumstances.
