Home loan for a dream house

Home loan for a dream house

With the rise in earnings per household, the dream of having one’s own home has become a possibility now. Are just the savings sufficient to buy a dream home? The Banks and Non Banking Financial Companies (NBFC’s) have made this dream possible. But there are certain eligibility criteria to be met for procuring a loan. Says Gaurav Gaur, CEO and Founder,

Let us look at the basic questions one might have before applying for a home loan –

Does Bank give a 100% home loan?

As per the policies Banks and NBFCs can only grant 80-85% of the value of the property/home as the loan amount. No bank or NBFC’S would give you 100% loan amount.

Is there any Age criteria?

The minimum age of the applicant for applying for loan should be at least 24 years. The maximum can be up to 65 years if they are self- employed and if salaried is 60 years. A salaried person should have at least 2 years of work experience.

How much bank loan can I get for buying a home?

As per Reserve Bank of India (RBI), a person can get a loan which is maximum of 60 times of his salary, however most of the Banks give 50-60% only. Suppose your Salary is Rs. 15000 Rs then you are eligible for a loan of Rs. 7-9 Lakhs Rupees, the Bank counts for ‘in hand’ salary only.
