AGOURA HILLS, Calif., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Homes 4 Rent (NYSE: AMH) (the "Company") today announced an amendment to its credit facility that increases its borrowing capacity to $800 million from $500 million and extends the date when amounts borrowed need to be repaid to September 30, 2018.

The amount that may be borrowed under the credit facility is based generally on the borrowing base defined in the agreement.
