Tips to Decide the Right Amount of Home Loan EMI

  • Decide the loan amount you actually need: An estimation of the Home Loan amount is must before approaching the bank. The eligible Home Loan amount is derived based on the value of your property and income of the borrower. Since the Home Loan is a secured loan and involves a huge interest cost for a long tenure, it is recommended to apply for the minimum Home Loan amount. Also, it is important to choose the loan tenure taking into consideration current expenses and obligations.
  • Review your current obligations: A complete evaluation of all your current expenses including your lifestyle and current EMIs (if any) is must before applying for the Home Loan.

  • Calculate your Canara Bank Home Loan eligibility: It is very important to know the eligibility prior to applying for the Home Loan at Canara Bank. The Home Loan eligibility is calculated on the basis of the repayment capacity of the borrower. Canara Bank provides Home Loan LTV up to 90%. The remaining margin amount has to be paid by the borrower from own funds. If the borrower does not have the capacity to pay 20% margin money, they can apply for higher LTV loans. However, higher LTV loans come with high EMI and are available on the high rate of interest.
  • Fixed Income to Obligations Ratio (FOIR): It is one of the most important factors considered by Canara Bank to estimate the repayment capacity of an applicant. All the current obligations such as EMIs and current expenses are taken into consideration to arrive at FOIR. The ratio of your obligations to income gives a bank the FOIR. FOIR helps the bank to determine and assess the borrower's capacity. This can be different from your own assessment. In such case, the borrower can readjust the Home Loan amount and apply again. The minimum FOIR of 0.65 is must to be eligible for the Home Loan at Canara Bank. The individuals with low FOIR are not considered by a bank for the Home Loan. Paying any short term loans with higher EMI will help the applicant to increase the FOIR.
