A home loan is secured in nature, i.e., the loan amount is sanctioned against a collateral, which is the property in question.

The loan amount is sanctioned at a predetermined interest for an agreed-to period, also known as the ‘tenure.’ The borrower repays the loan with interest through a home loan EMI, payable every month. The property ownership remains with the lender till the home loan repayment is complete, including interest.

Can I get 100% home finance?

No. As per RBI guidelines, no lender is permitted to offer 100% home financing. You need to make a down payment amounting to 10-20% of the property’s purchase price. Typically, you can obtain up to 80% housing loan financing for your property.

Which home finance is the best: Fixed or floating interest rate?

Both types of home loans have their pros and cons. With a fixed-rate home loan, the interest rate remains constant through the tenor, which allows you to forecast EMIs. Pick it when home loan interest rates are low and when you want fixed EMIs.

With floating-rate home loans, the interest rate alters basis economic changes and RBI policy decisions. Choose this variant when you expect rates to reduce in the time to come. Additionally, the RBI mandates that you do not need to pay any prepayment or foreclosure charges if you’re an individual borrowing a floating rate home loan.
