Home Equity Credit Line

The Home Equity Credit Line is todayís smartest and most economical way to borrow: great rates, ultimate flexibility, a potential tax break, and the ease and convenience of dealing with your local community bank. Whether itís for home improvements, college tuition, unexpected medical expenses, paying off higher interest rate debt or other major purchases, establishing an equity line of credit makes financial sense for most homeowners. Once you have a Home Equity Credit Line from American Enterprise Bank, you can use the equity in your home for what you need now ó or later. 

Great Rates are Just the Beginning*

For lines of credit from $10,000.00 to $99,999.99, the interest rate is prime plus 0.75%*; for lines of credit $100,000 and above, the interest rate is prime plus 0.25%* ó both significantly lower rates than the average credit card or other non-secured loans. And, if you have a lower loan-to-value ratio or make monthly payments via automatic debit from your checking account, you may qualify for even lower rates. Check with your loan officer. Best of all, we make your line easy to use ó and easy to fit into your budget.

  • Access your funds by writing an Equity Line Check (minimum $500)
  • Use the automatic debit feature on your American Enterprise Bank checking account to minimize payment hassles and maximize your available balance
  • Make interest-only monthly payments and pay the principal whenever you choose during the seven-year term of the line

Itís a Better Way to Borrow

A Home Equity Credit Line from American Enterprise Bank is a flexible, revolving line of credit, based on the equity youíve built in your home and your credit worthiness. Just write yourself a loan whenever you need it and pay interest only on the amount you use. Unlike most other forms of consumer credit, home equity credit lines give qualified borrowers an important tax break: the interest paid is deductible for most homeowners. Consult your tax advisor about your personal financial situation.
