3.05% 24-Month CD & Other Competitive Rates at Heritage Bank of Florida - Local Only


Heritage Bank of Florida
Heritage Bank of Florida is offering a 24-month CD with a 3.05% APY. Minimum deposit is $1,000. This is also available in an IRA. This CD is listed in the bank's rate table as of 4/20/09.

The bank also offers competitive rates for its money market and checking accounts. The money market account has tiered rates with a 2.50% APY for a balance of $40K to $100K, and 3.00% APY for balances over $100K. The bank also offers a checking account that pays 1.10% which is not too bad for a brick-and-mortar bank in today's rate environment. In my last post on this bank in November 2008, the checking account rate was 2.22% APY.

A branch visit is required to open new accounts. Branches are located in Lutz, Wesley Chapel and Tampa, Florida.

The bank has some decent financial ratings for soundness: 3 stars (performing) at and 4 stars (excellent) at BauerFinancial. Both are based on 12/31/08 data. The bank has been FDIC insured since 1999 (FDIC Certificate # 35009).
