Home Equity Term Loans

This top bank in Tennessee offers fixed and variable rate programs, plus a repayment schedule. Monthly payments are calculated to completely pay out a loan by its term end, with no balloon payment or renegotiations necessary.



Mortgage and Home Construction Loans

These loans are offered in all communities of Knox, Anderson, Blount, Sevier, Loudon, and Roane counties in Tennessee.

Government Agency Mortgages

Home Federal Bank offers mortgage loans sponsored by both state and federal housing agencies (Federal Housing Administration, Veterans Administration, and the Tennessee Housing Development Agency).

Construction/Permanent Loans

The construction/permanent loan, or C/Perm, is very popular for individuals building a new home. This loan combines the features of a construction loan with permanent financing, so only one loan closing is necessary.

This saves time and added expense that would typically be associated with two closings.

Commercial Lending Services

Home Federal Bank offers a variety of loan options for businesses and other organizations, and experienced lending specialists work with clients on a one-on-one basis to compose a financing solution suited to their individual needs.

Commercial loan products include:

Seasonal and Short-Term Credit

Credit to fund seasonal buildups of inventory or accounts receivable or special one-time needs for cash. These loans can be revolving lines of credit or short-term.

Working Capital Lines & Term Loans

Successful businesses and their owners often need additional funds to support growth and expansion.

Working capital lines or term loans can help with this daunting task and can be repaid from future cash flows.

Financing for Plant and Equipment

Financing for fixed assets, from construction and permanent building financing to financing for vehicles, machinery, and equipment.

Commercial Real Estate Financing

Construction and permanent financing for commercial and other income-producing properties.

Loans to Non-Profit Organizations

Home Federal’s bankers are well-versed in assisting non-profits and other groups with special needs, and a variety of options are available to assist non-profit organizations and worship groups.
