Let’s read ahead to understand the key points to finance your second home.

Second-home loan

Anyone can apply for a home loan for a second home loan. However, Banks/ NBFCs are quite strict in such cases and do a deep assessment of your financial standing. On the other hand, the lenders would prefer to lend you a loan only if the market value of your first property is more than the second property which you are planning to buy. There may be a situation when the lender is still not convinced, that you should take a second home loan even when you are backed with your investments standing. This could include your shares, jewellery, mutual funds, insurance and other assets.

Rent out the first property

This is the first option that everyone thinks if the property is  not being used for the residential purpose. If you are planning to have a second home and a second financial liability then it will suit you better to live in your newly bought property renting out your first property. This in turn will help you to pay the new EMIs for your second home.

Top-up loan

In case you are already running with a home loan on one of your property and doesn’t want to plan to borrow a separate home loan, then you can also opt to add the new EMI’s to the existing EMIs you are paying for your first mortgage. This is also known as a top-up loan. Applying for a top-up loan with the same lender would also save you from the trouble of going through the new loan-taking process.

Loan against property

While planning to buy your second home you can always opt to put your first property as a security or collateral with a Bank/ NBFC to get your second property financed. Using your property to borrow a loan is known as loan against property. The loan amount is decided as per the current market value of your property.

However, the other factors are also assessed that affect your eligibility to borrow a new loan which includes your age, income sources, credit score and most importantly your past repayment track.
