Obtaining a Loan Through a Marietta Community Bank

These institutions tend to be less formulaic in assessing loan applications and are more willing to consider individual factors in their decision-making.

You should consider establishing an ongoing working relationship with a specific bank even before setting up shop, or as soon as possible thereafter, to help with your loan application.

Establishing a small line of credit with a bank, even if your business does not immediately need funds, is often a good way of getting to know your banker. The more knowledgeable and familiar the lender is with the borrower, the more likely the lender is to understand and accommodate the individual needs of the small business. And if you apply for a line of credit and then don't need to use it, you'll build up a very favorable impression of your business.

Work Smart

Advice on credit issues, as well as general business expertise, have always been offered as a service by some banks. But with the increased competition among banks, many more institutions are promoting and packaging their loan offerings with these additional "smart money" services.

Most small businesses can benefit from the experience of an experienced banker or lender, and your choice of a lending institution and a specific person within the institution should take this potential benefit into consideration.

Finding Marietta Community Banker Lenders

The Small Business Administration publishes a state-by-state directory of small business lending reported by commercial banks.

Although this directory of Certified and Preferred Lenders should not be your exclusive source for selecting the bank that's best for you, the compilation can help identify banks in your area that are lending large amounts to small businesses and that have experience with small business needs.
