Overview

HomeBank started in 1934 and has its headquarters in Palmyra, Missouri. HomeBank has assets of $370 million as well as deposits totaling $296 million, making it a small bank. HomeBank lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. SmartAsset experts rated the bank 4.1 out of 5 stars, indicating that HomeBank is a respectable bank that you should consider. HomeBank provides customers with a diversity of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. HomeBank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. Finding an institution with no-fee checking as well as a high savings APY is the best bet for accruing the most income on your deposits while having easy access to your money.

HomeBank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts and money market accounts that provide you with many options to manage your money. HomeBank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider taking a look elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. HomeBank's CD rates are fair compared to other U.S. banks.
