Overview

Established in 1920, Southcrest Bank has $543 million in assets as well as $445 million in deposits, classifying it as a medium-size bank. Southcrest Bank, whose headquarters are in Atlanta, Georgia, 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 apps. We ranked Southcrest Bank at a 3.9 stars out of 5, suggesting it is a respectable bank that warrants your consideration. Southcrest Bank has a varied selection of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs and credit cards. Southcrest Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Southcrest Bank's ordinary checking account does not have a monthly fee. Banks that offer no-fee checking as well as a high savings APY are your best bet for gaining the most income from your deposits while maintaining easy access to your funds.

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