With the rising costs of owning a residential property in India, availing a Home Loan has become a necessity for most prospective homeowners. Add to it the various benefits of availing housing finance, and you can understand the reason behind the increase in the number of individuals applying for a Home Loan in 2019. This increase in demand for Home Loans has forced financial institutions to come up with the latest offers to attract more customers. The increased competition between different financial institutions goes well for the customers, as you are likely to get a good deal on your Home Loan.

Though, you must be aware that availing a Home Loan is a significant financial responsibility and the decision should not be taken in haste. Generally, the amount availed as a Home Loan is substantial and the repayment tenor can extend up to 30 years, the implications of the decision are significant, and therefore, you must do thorough research, consider all parameters and only then make a final decision.

 

Factors to consider while comparing Home Loan offers

With so many financial institutions on the horizon, you obviously would want to pick the best Home Loan offer.

The factors that you need to consider are:

  • Interest Rate: With repayment tenor of up to 30 years and loan amount running into lakhs and crores, the interest rate is an important factor for you to consider. Even a slight reduction or increase in the Home Loan interest rate can have significant financial implications.
  • Repayment Tenor: You must opt for a repayment tenor that gives you an EMI amount as per your comfort level. You must consider that the longer the repayment tenor, lower is the EMI, but higher is the interest cost and vice-versa.
  • APR: APR or Annual Percentage Rate specifies the total cost of the loan for you in a year. It is a more accurate parameter to ascertain the suitability of a loan as compared to the interest rate.
  • Foreclosure Charges: If you intend to repay your Home Loan before the timelines mentioned in the repayment schedule, then you must consider the foreclosure charges as well. Some financial institutions do not levy foreclosure charges while some levy up to 4 percent.
  • Loan to Value Ratio: It specifies the maximum amount that the financial institution is willing to offer against the value of the property. This ratio will determine the down payment you need to make.
