HomeTown Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about 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. HomeTown Bank's CD rates are fair in comparison to the national average.
