Residential Construction

We offer financing for both custom and spec new construction throughout the Tulsa metro area. These loans are generally structured as twelve-month single pay notes, with the amount borrowed being paid from the sale of the home. The amount of the loan is set at a percentage of the appraisal, based off of plans and specs. Funds are advanced in draws as the construction progresses.

To provide further benefit and to assist the buyer of your homes, we offer permanent mortgage loans. This type of loan can provide you with the comfort of knowing that the buyer has been pre-approved, and is particularly helpful on a custom home.


Several of our Officers and Directors have experience with residential development projects. Due to the fact that these projects are generally of significant size and complexity, this understanding is critical to your success.

Development loans are generally established based on the appraised amount of the project with draws for expenses as incurred. The payment structure is usually in the form of periodic interest payments with principal reductions coming from the sale of the lots. Specific terms are based on the particulars of the project.

Lines of Credit

To facilitate the day-to-day operations of your business, we offer line of credit financing or term notes to assist with the cash flow cycle. A revolving line of credit is an excellent way to have a commitment in place that allows you flexibility in advancing funds and making principal reductions. Lines of credit are often utilized by businesses to assist with inventory purchases and accounts receivables. A term note can also be established for upfront cash flow needs that you desire to payout on a pre-determined fully amortizing schedule.

Lines of credit may be financed by a fixed asset such as real estate, or by accounts receivable and inventory (asset based). Real estate secured lines of credit allow a business to have the capacity to borrow up to the amount of the line at any time.

For Asset Based lines of credit, you can simply provide us with a periodic borrowing base that summarizes the inventory and accounts receivable values. The borrowing base calculations determine the specific amount that a business has available under the line to advance and assists a business in managing cash flow as well as appropriate borrowings.

We understand that managing cash flow is vitally important to the success of any business. To learn more about how we can assist your business with credit needs, please contact a commercial lender. We would look forward to learning more about the specific needs of your business. If you prefer, please complete a confidential Business Loan Referral Information form.

First Bank of Owasso is also an approved lender through the U.S Small Business Administration (SBA) loan programs.

Small Business Loans

First Bank of Owasso is an approved lender through the U.S Small Business Administration (SBA) for both the SBA 7(a) and SBA 504 loan programs. Both are excellent programs that assist clients in obtaining financing for a number of purposes.

SBA 7(a)

The 7(a) program is the most common SBA loan program. It is designed to assist in establishing and growing small businesses providing guarantees on loans made by the lender.

We utilize the 7(a) program when a financing project may not quite meet typical underwriting guidelines. This is often a good option for start-up/new businesses or for those that may involve limited or specialized collateral.

The program supports a variety of loan purposes, including:

  • equipment purchases
  • real estate
  • business acquisitions
  • construction or remodeling projects
  • lines of credit
  • refinance of business debts

For real estate secured loans, the property should be primarily owner occupied. The maximum loan amount is set at $2,000,000 by the SBA. Most small businesses and purposes are eligible.

To obtain an SBA loan, simply provide us with the typical financial statements and related information obtained on a commercial loan. We will prepare the necessary SBA forms, and will work directly with the SBA on your behalf. We act as your single point of contact.

SBA 504

For borrowers that are looking for a loan with lower down payment requirements, or are interested in a portion of the financing being set at a low fixed rate, the 504 program may be an option for you.

Like the 7(a) program, the 504 program can be used for a variety of needs, including:

  • real estate
  • equipment
  • purchases
  • new construction or improvements

The program is designed by SBA to promote job growth through the growth of a business.

The 504 program is structured to allow for up to 90% financing of the project cost. Special use properties or new businesses may involve additional equity injection. As a further benefit to the borrower, up to 40% of the project cost is set at below market fixed interest rate for 10 years on equipment and 20 years on real estate. The low equity injection requirement and the low long-term fixed rates make this a very attractive option for financing to most clients.
