Hi All -

I am currently a W2 employee, renting an apartment and own no real estate. I hope to acquire a business (with SBA 7a) in the next few years. Upon acquisition, I'd ideally purchase a home sometime in the following year (in closer vicinity to the business). Two questions:

1. Will having no real estate collateral at the time I apply for the SBA loan make qualifying for one more difficult?
2. Will the SBA loan inhibit my ability to qualify for a mortgage? Let's assume my W2 salary and CEO salary will be equivalent.

Thank you!
