What is Home Loan?

A Home Loan is the money borrowed from a bank or any other financial institution for construction, purchase, remodelling, or repair of a house. The loan will either be on a fixed rate of interest or floating rate of interest and will be repayable in equated monthly instalments (EMI). The repayment tenure is flexible and the maximum repayment period can go up to 30 years.  The asset created out of the finance so availed will be mortgaged to the bank/financial institution till the entire dues are repaid.

The condition stipulated for availing the benefit is that there is no permission to sell the house within 5 years of taking possession.

A deduction for the payment towards the interest component up to a maximum limit of 2 Lakhs can be availed as Section 24. This benefit is available only if the house loan is availed for purchase or construction of the house. If availed for construction, the construction of the house should be completed within 5 years from the date of availing the housing loan.

If the loan amount doesn't exceed 35 Lakhs and the value of the property is not more than 50 Lakhs and the borrower does not own another property at the time of availing the loan, a deduction up to 50,000 is allowed under Section 80EE.

How to Get the Best Home Loan Rates in India?

To get the best Home Loan rates, follow the tips mentioned below:

Ascertain your loan eligibility and EMI

Comparing the offers of different bank's is very crucial if you want to get the best deal. To begin with, you should have an account of your present commitments that form a part of your monthly expenses. Assess the loan quantum by charting out the estimate of the project you intend to take a loan for. Once these are ready you will be able to calculate the EMI based on the tenure you opt for and the rate of interest you choose. You arrive at the EMI which will best suit your income. You can use MyMoneyMantra's EMI Calculator for accurate EMI calculation purpose.

Compare the offers from different banks. You should consider the processing charges that are collected also to arrive at the cost of the loan. You will now have the EMIs and the eligible quantum of loan from different banks and you can choose the best deal that will suit your pocket.

Verify the legal documents of the property

If you are buying a flat, it is better to approach the bank which has approved the project. If you are buying a ready-built house then check for the line of documents from the original owner to the present owner. The approved plan should be available. Then shortlist the banks that agree to give a loan for the property you intend to buy. Make a list of the banks that are agreeable to finance for the property you choose to buy.

Choose from the various types of Home Loan

Now that you have made a list of banks with different offers the next ordeal is to decide whether you want to go for a fixed rate of interest or the floating rate of interest. The fixed rate of interest will be priced a little higher but will remain constant during the loan tenure whereas the floating rate of interest keeps changing with the periodical changes that the financial institutions make in their rates.

There is also a Home Loan variant with an overdraft facility. This is suitable for the non-salaried people who are into businesses which are seasonal in nature and the cash flow is not constant. This overdraft facility enables you to make a deposit as and when you have a surplus amount. This will reduce the interest outgo towards the loan.

Study the offers of the banks in the list

Apart from the interest rates, you will have to run through the other charges like the insurance premium, prepayment charges, processing charges, legal charges, and so on, which will impact the cost of the loan.

Ascertain the quality of service rendered

Consider the time taken for the entire process from the appraisal to the approval and disbursement of the loan. A loan that is not available at the right time does not serve the purpose. Also, understand the tendency of MCLR fluctuation.

After the entire ordeal step-by-step is completed and you are convinced of the best deal, go for the loan.

Factors Affecting Home Loan Interest Rates

The factors that affect the Home Loan interest rates are:

  • Credit score: Before taking a credit decision, financial institutions check your credit score which is based on your credit history. A good score indicates good financial management which is the most expected from the lenders. The better the score the lower will be the rate of interest.
  • Margin: If the margin brought by you is higher, the loan component will reduce which will in turn reduce the interest outgo.
  • The loan tenure: Shorter loan tenure is recommended because it will reduce the interest outgo. If a higher EMI is affordable, then choosing a shorter tenure will be beneficial as it will reduce the interest outgo.
  • Type of interest rate: The two types of interest rates are the floating rate of interest and the fixed rate of interest. The fixed rate of interest will be higher than the floating rate but it will remain constant till the loan tenure. However, a floating rate of interest is fluctuating. If the MCLR of the banks increases, your interest rate also will increase and so will the EMI. This may disrupt your budget. But in the case of fixed rate of interest your EMI will remain unchanged.
