BALTIMORE, MD, Dec 07 (MARKET WIRE) -- Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of HomeBanc Corp. ("HomeBanc" or the "Company") (PINKSHEETS: HMBNP) between March 7, 2006 and August 3, 2007, inclusive (the "Class Period"), including those investors who purchased the Company's 10% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock pursuant or traceable to HomeBanc's February 2, 2006 offering in which the Company sold 2 million shares of Series A Preferred Stock for $25.00 per share. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period the Company, and certainof its officers and/or directors, violated federal securities laws by issuing various materially false and misleading statements that had the effect of artificially inflating the market price of the Company's securities and causing Class members to overpay for the securities. No class has yet been certified in the above action. If you are a member of the proposed Class, you may, no later than January 29, 2008, ask the Court to allow you to serve as lead plaintiff for the proposed Class.

In making your decision, you should take into account that those with large financial losses resulting from the alleged federal securities law violations are given preference in being appointed lead plaintiff.
