Our Auto Loans operate as installment loans where the borrower pays us back in a fixed installment or payments over a specific term as opposed to revolving credit where the payments change with the balance. 

Installment loans can also be used on recreational vehicles, boats and Home Improvement Loans featured below.

We come from farming and understand the needs of our local farmers.  Our convenient agriculture loans or farm loans will finance all facets of the farming business including production, machinery and equipment, farmland and livestock.  We offer loans for the smaller family-sized farms as well as the large farming operation.

Home Improvement Loans - Click here for application

For home improvements like that new addition or a garage expansion, we use installment loans, open-ended or closed-ended lines of credits with home equity, depending on your needs.  An open-end line of credit provides you with a revolving line of credit using your home equity and can be used for multiple purposes while a closed-end line of credit requires you to define a specific amount and use.

Real Estate Loans - Click here for application

There are many options when it comes to real estate loans or home mortgage loans and each is designed to cover a specific loan amount, interest rate, income, credit or home category.  At Cedar Valley Bank & Trust, the real estate loans we most commonly provide are residential, construction and agricultural real estate loans. 

Popular residential loans are purchase, refinance and home equity loans.  Construction loans are simply any loan that finances a construction project, but can contain many different features and agricultural real estate loans are exactly that – a farm real estate loan.
