As Low As Rate Explanation
The "As Low As" rate shown reflects a Relationship Pricing Reduction of 0.25%. Relationship pricing may be earned by maintaining an automatic loan payment from a Home Federal Bank checking account for the loan term. All loans are subject to rate increases due to factors such as complexity, risk or other considerations. Relationship Pricing Reduction may never reduce the rate below the loan program rate floor, if applicable.
