Remove the Stress of the Loan Application Process

Applying for a business loan can be stressful and time consuming. However, at Capital Resources, we’ve designed an efficient lending process to provide current and future agency owners with the loan you need when the time for acquisition, expansion or debt refinance is right.

The following tools: Helpful Tips and Payment Calculator, can help assist you in your loan application process.

When considering a lender for your next Allstate, Farmers or independent insurance agency loan it can be helpful to understand what the process is and how it all works. With Capital Resources it begins with a conversation. One of our insurance agency loan specialists listens to your needs and objectives and discusses the different options we may be able to provide for the benefit of your insurance agency.

Once we have a good understanding of your needs and objectives, we will ask you to complete a credit application and personal financial statement.

Independent Agency Credit Application

Once you’ve filled out the credit application and personal financial statement, it’s time to compile the attachments needed as we complete the underwriting on your insurance agency loan request. For a detailed list of necessary attachments for an Allstate agency loan Click Here, for a detailed list of items needed for a Farmers agency loan Click Here, and for a detailed list of items needed for an Independent agency loan Click Here.

As soon as we receive your application with all the necessary attachments, your loan will be underwritten in as little as one business day. If any questions arise during the underwriting process, you will be contacted by telephone and/or email.

Prior to formal approval, we typically submit an estimate of what we believe we’ll be able to offer you in a final loan product. The interest rate, any fees and overall loan term will be disclosed at this time. Upon your approval of these terms we will submit for formal loan approval.

Once approved, we will notify you by telephone and/or in writing, and the approval will be memorialized with a formal commitment letter.

After you sign the commitment letter, we’ll send final loan closing documents to you electronically via DocuSign, where you can simply tap as prompted on your mobile device or click where prompted on your computer and fully execute your loan documents in minutes.

Finally, on your loan’s closing date, your loan proceeds will be disbursed via electronic funds transfer before the close of business on the loan’s closing date.

Congratulations, you’re done!
