  • Low interest rates
  • Different payment terms ranging from 5-20 years for most of products
  • Repayments can be made through property tax
  • If the property is sold before the HERO Financing is paid in off, the remaining payments will be passed on to a new property owner.

HERO Financing is available to commercial and residential property owners in many cities and counties across California.
