This bank has a history of offering short-term CD specials. In January it was offering a 1.50% 3-month CD. Rates were much higher several years ago. Back in 2008 (the good old days) it was offering a 6% 3-month CD.

HomeBanc offers a free checking account called Home Free Checking. It has no monthly fees and no minimum balance. The bank is also a member of Publix Presto! ATM network for surcharge-free ATM use.

The bank's financial health has improved over the last year. It now has an overall health grade at DepositAccounts.com of an A with a Texas Ratio of 0.68% (excellent) based on March 2014 data. Please refer to our financial overview of HomeBanc for more details. The bank has been a FDIC member since 2007 (FDIC Certificate # 58194).

How This CD Rate Compares

I find this longer-term CD more attractive than HomeBanc’s past 3-month CD specials. In my opinion, three months is just too short of a time to make the CD worthwhile, even with the high rate.

This new 39-month CD special is quite competitive when compared to nationally available 3-year (36-month) CDs. The best 3-year CD rate that’s nationally available is 1.75% APY. That’s available at Connexus Credit Union. However, this requires an active checking account.

The best 3-year CD rate that’s available from an internet bank is 1.50% APY. This is available at CIT Bank, but a minimum deposit of $100K is required.

Another option is a 5-year CD with a mild early withdrawal penalty. Synchrony Bank is offering a 5-year CD with a 2.30% APY for a $25K minimum deposit. The early withdrawal penalty is only 6 months of interest, so if this CD is closed after 3 years, the effective yield will be 1.92% (see EWP calculator).

The above rates are accurate as of 8/6/2014.
