Types of Interest Rates for Home Loans


Interest rates on home loans are levied under two different types, fixed and floating. Take a detailed look at both types.

a. Fixed rate of interest

Fixed home loan interest rate remains constant for the entire loan tenure. It allows borrowers to estimate their total repayment liability and interest outgo at the beginning of the loan tenure. Availing a home loan at a fixed rate of interest also helps in planning repayment and manage finances efficiently.

A fixed lending rate on home loans is suitable during times when the possibility of an increase in interest rate exists. Depending on the current trend in rate changes, borrowers can ensure that they avail the finance at the lowest possible rate.

A fixed rate of interest may not be suitable under circumstances that predict a decreasing trend in interest rates.

b. Floating rate of interest

Unlike fixed rates, floating home loan interest rates are variable and change over the loan tenure due to multiple contributing factors. Based on the benchmark rate linked to housing finance, the floating interest rate on home loans increases or reduces.

Borrowers can opt for a floating interest rate on home loans when the market changes indicate a trend of falling rate.

A floating rate of interest may not be suitable during high market volatility as the risk of rising rates exists and can result in increased interest accumulation over time.

Depending on their suitability, borrowers can opt to switch from fixed to floating interest rate and vice versa during their loan tenure. However, fixed rates are usually 1-2.5% higher than floating interest rates.  

Factors That Affect Home Loan Interest Rate and EMI


Several factors affect the interest rate on home loans, with competitive rates making repayment affordable in easy EMIs. Check the factors that impact the housing loan interest rate and payable instalments before applying, for affordable repayment. Factors affecting the interest rate also impact the EMIs payable as a change in interest rate is directly proportional to change in the instalment amount.

  1. 1. Type of interest rate

    Borrowers can avail a home loan at any of the three types of interest rates, fixed, floating or mixed. As fixed rates remain constant throughout the loan tenure, floating rates are affected by policy rate changes introduced by the RBI.

    A reduction in RBI’s key policy or repo rate and lender competition pulls down the housing loan interest rate and vice versa. Home loan borrowers can opt for a floating rate during trends of falling market rates. Fixed rates, on the other hand, can be suitable when the lending rates are set to rise in the future.

    Mixed rates of interest result in interest levy at a fixed rate at the onset of a home loan tenure and convert to floating rates after a set period.
  2. 2. Benchmark rate of lending

    Benchmark lending rates can either be Marginal Cost of Funds based Lending Rate (MCLR) or Repo-Linked Lending Rate (RLLR). Financial institutions decide a reset period for MCLR for durations of 3 months, 6 months, 1 year or 2 year across the home loan tenure and levy interest rates accordingly. RLLR is directly linked to the RBI’s repo rate and bears a quick adjustment with every change in the policy rates.

    The RBI has decided to phase out MCLR-based lending over time to introduce a more transparent and repo rate-receptive RLLR to offer affordability to customers and improve the overall banking system.
  3. 3. LTV or Loan to Value ratio

    LTV is the maximum loan amount a lender extends to home loan applicants as a percentage of the property’s current market value. A high LTV, while bringing suitable financing value, also translates to a higher loan quantum and increased risk of lending, resulting in an increased interest rate. Borrowers can increase their down payment amount to pull down the total loan quantum for an affordable housing loan interest rate.
  4. 4. Property’s location and condition

    The location of a property, its current condition, and amenities available determine its resale value. Age of the property also commands its resale prospects. A high resale value means a lucrative opportunity for financial institutions, incentivising them to offer lower interest rates to borrowers and vice versa.
  5. 5. Repayment tenure

    The repayment tenure of home loans is directly linked to the risk of lending for financial institutions and the time value for the money extended as advance. A borrower’s housing loan interest rate is thus set to be higher for an extended tenure and lower for a shorter period of repayment.

    The EMIs are inversely related to the repayment term, making instalments dearer for a short tenure, but interest accumulation remains in check. Contrarily, a long tenure means easy and affordable EMIs but higher interest accumulation.
  6. 6. Applicant’s financial profile

    The financial profile of an applicant also indicates the margin of risk a financial institution undertakes when lending. Salaried borrowers with a suitable job profile at a reputed organisation or self-employed individuals with stable and regulated income and a high credit score attract competitive interest rates as the risk involved is limited. Such applicants can also negotiate for an affordable rate to make convenient repayment.

    Interest rates usually remain high for applicants with unstable income or job profile due to a higher margin of risk involved.

    Make sure to consider all these factors before applying for a home loan to secure the best interest rate and EMI amount on your housing finance.

 

How to Reduce Home Loan Interest Burden?


As various factors contribute to home loan interest rate determination, interest accumulation on the loan amount is consequent to the rate availed. Adopt a few strategies to check the interest burden on your home loan for affordable repayment over the tenure. Take a look.

  • A. Select a short tenure for repayment

    Home loans are long-term advances extending up to 20 years to make repayments affordable for borrowers. An extended tenure also means interest rate levied for more number of years, and a substantial interest burden.

    Opt for a shorter tenure to keep the interest accumulation in check as lesser number of years ensures interest levied for a limited period. Use a home loan EMI calculator to compare different tenure options and select a suitable repayment period that helps reduce the total interest.
  • B. Opt for a balance transfer facility

    A housing finance balance transfer facility allows you to switch your outstanding loan amount to a financial institution offering reduced home loan interest rate. The refinancing facility from Bajaj Housing Finance Limited also comes with high-value top-up loan borrowers can utilise to fulfil diverse funding needs due to zero end-use restriction.

    Along with affordable home loan interest rates and reduced interest burden, the balance transfer facility also offers EMI holiday for up to 3 months for convenient repayment and improved management of finances.
  • C. Request annual EMI revisions

    Borrowers can also opt for annual EMI revisions with each increase in income or a salary hike as higher EMIs mean quick reduction of the outstanding loan liability. Early repayment of the principal also cuts down the loan tenure and helps reduce the total interest accumulation. Home loan borrowers can ideally increase their EMIs payable by 5% with every 10% increment in income.
  • D. Prepay with any lump sum available

    Prepayment is another useful facility to utilise for an overall reduction in interest burden. Opt to part-prepay your home loan at any time before the tenure ends with an available lump sum amount. Part-prepaying helps reduce the outstanding loan principal and limits the overall interest accumulation.

    Borrowers can also choose to foreclose the loan account altogether with sufficient fund availability to cut down any new interest accumulation on the outstanding principal.

    Bajaj Housing Finance Limited extends both the prepayment facilities on floating rate home loans at nil charges to increase borrower affordability.

    Other ways to limit the interest outgo include making a higher down payment, negotiating with the lender, and documenting all sources of income to secure a competitive home loan interest rate.

Housing loan interest rate FAQs

How is interest rate calculated?

To calculate interest rate, use an interest calculator that lets you accurately calculate your monthly installments or EMIs for the loan. This tool can also help you find the total payable interest and cost of loan. You only have to enter your housing loan interest rate, principal, and tenor to calculate the EMI.

What is the current interest rate on home loans?

The current home loan interest rates offered by Bajaj Finserv are:

Fixed rate of interest:

  • Salaried Customers - 6.90%* onwards
  • Self-employed customers - 9.35% - 11.15%

The current promotional housing loan interest rate for salaried customers (For New) is 6.90%* onwards.

Which interest rate is better?

There are two types of interest rates you can choose from - fixed or floating interest rates.
 
  • Fixed Rate: Fixed rate home loans enable you to plan your repayment more easily. Your EMIs remain constant throughout the tenor.
  • Floating Rate: The rate of interest on a floating home loan can decrease as floating rates vary with market conditions. Hence, your EMIs become more affordable. However, the rates can also increase along with the EMIs.

One of the advantages of floating interest rate is zero charges on foreclosure or part-prepayment.
