Introduction

home loans in India

Everyone dreams of owning a house. It is considered to be one of the three basic necessities of life: Roti (bread), Kapada (Clothing), and Makkan (House) in that order. Once you complete your studies, take up a job, and get married, you start dreaming about your own house as you would have met or got the confidence that you would be able to meet the first two needs. However, building or buying a home of your own would be one of the major decisions you will be making in your life. This is because you will be making a long-term financial commitment.

Deciding to go in for your own home is an important decision in your life as it forms part of your goal to secure your family’s future. That said, most people in India would need some kind of financial assistance to help them fructify their dream. To cater to this need, many banks and other financial institutions in India extend home loans to eligible individuals.

If you are a new home buyer, it is important that you have a clear idea about home loans and mortgages in order to take an informed decision. Simple mistakes that many people make can cost them a great deal of money over the term of the loan that often runs into 20 to 30 years. This home loan guide will take you through all the aspects you need to know prior to applying for a home loan and buying a home for yourself. So, let us get started.


What Is Home Loan

Home loan and its advantages

A home loan can be defined as the amount of money borrowed by an individual from either a bank or a financial institution at a specified rate of interest. The money borrowed should be paid back on the basis of equated monthly instalments (EMI) within the agreed time period. Often, the borrower offers the property as collateral security for the money advanced by the lender for buying the home. The property may be a personal or commercial property. If the borrower fails to repay the loan amount, the lender can legally recover the outstanding amount by selling the property that was offered as collateral security.

Advantages of taking a home loan

Though availing a home loan is a long term financial commitment, it does offer some benefits. Some of them are listed below:

  • Capital appreciation : In the longer-term, the property prices will only increase and not depreciate.
  • Credit eligibility increases : Once you have paid off the mortgage and have achieved the complete ownership of your house, you can avail loans against it.
  • Helps in building good credit history : A mortgage is generally considered to be a good debt, unlike credit card debt, as it is linked to an asset.
  • Tax benefits : A home loan comes with several tax benefits. Deduction can be availed for the interest paid on home loan, interest paid during pre-construction period, principal repaid, and registration and stamp duty charges. People buying their first home and availing joint home loans are also eligible for certain benefits.
