Home Equity Loans

Make the equity in your home work for you with an American 1 Home Equity Loan. Home equity loans and lines of credit can give you access to money for home improvements, college tuition, vacations, emergencies, or even debt consolidation.+

In addition to providing you with a significant resource of funds and competitive rates, an American 1 home equity loan offers other advantages over competing lenders, including:

Fewer Fees

  • No application fees
  • No title placement/lien placement fee
  • No credit report fee
  • No closing fees
  • No document prep fee

Deductible Interest

A home equity loan is secured by your home so the interest you pay may be fully deductible for federal tax purposes.


You can choose between an easy-access line of credit or a simple closed-end loan.


The line of credit is as easy as using a debit card or writing a check. You can request an advance in person, by phone, or online.
