    We don’t have a LOC or anything but in the US, lines of credit, and other loans are almost always higher than mortgage rates. Edited b/c I put home equity loan info instead of what you asked :-). See post below!

    An unsecured personal loan for $10k from Wells Fargo carries an 8.25% APR with a 12 month term. I’m sure it goes up from there if you want longer to pay it off.

    @AB Bride:  Yeah it looks like personal loans from the quick google I did are around double the mortgage rate here right now. Expensive! But still lower than a lot of credit cards. It’d be a lot cheaper for us to do a home equity loan if we needed to.

    Personal loans are stupid expensive in the US!  They need to be avoided at all cost lol.  We got one for like 90 days to help a relative once and the rate was 8%.  Our mortgage however is 2.25%, seems much more reasonable!

    we didn’t end up getting it but the bank wanted to give us a 6.9% interest on a used car we wanted to purchase… no thanks. and thats a secured loan… i don’t even want to know what they’d charge us for a unsecured loan.  i hate loans… you always get raped in interest. the only loan thats “okay” is a mortgage and even that i want for no more then 20 years. because you still end up paying double the cost of the home over 30 years. i hate interest, its just like throwing away money.

    For an unsecured personal loan our rate is 4.99% (through a credit union, 5 year term for $10k+).

    It depends on the loan.  We each have several student loans and one car loan.

    The student loans range in from 1.75% to 6.55%.  His car loan is 2.99% and mine is 5.74%.  Our average combined interest rate is 4.69%.
