Tips to Avail Low Interest Home Loans 

With so many factors affecting the housing loan interest rate in India, such as income, loan amount, employment type, CIBIL score, etc., customers can rest assured that they can improve their eligibility for a lower interest rate.

Here are some useful tips on how you can get your hands on the best possible home loan rates in India:

  • Increase your down payment and tenure: Generally, home loan amount of up to Rs. 35 lakh is available at a lower interest rate compared to higher loan amounts. Hence, try to pay as much as possible in a down payment in order to bring down your loan amount. Additionally, opt for a longer tenure, usually more than 15-20 to reduce your EMI burden. 
  • Choose the right type of interest rate: While a fixed interest rate gives you a fixed EMI outlay for a fixed period, a floating interest rate will increase or decrease your tenure as per any volatility in the market rates of interest. Generally, the latter is slightly higher than the former. But fixed interest home loans are rarely available in the market. Check with your lender to understand their interest rates.  
  • Factor in income and employment status: Make sure that the home loan applicant has a steady, sufficient income and is employed in a PSU or a reputed company to avail competitive interest rates.
  • Enhance your credit score: It goes without saying that if you have a 750+ credit score, then the lenders view your home loan eligibility more favourably. Hence, try to improve your creditworthiness before applying for a low interest home loans.
  • Consider a female applicant: Did you know that many lenders provide a certain concession in interest rate to women home loan applicants? Check with your lender to know if making a female the primary applicant can help you get a lower housing loan interest rate.
  • Opt for a home loan balance transfer: A home loan balance transfer facility lets anyone with an existing home loan transfer the remaining amount to another lender offering more favourable terms. This is a great way to avail a lower home loan interest in the middle of your tenure.
  • Look out for promos and offers: Always keep your eyes peeled for any festive season offers, lender tie-ups or special promos when opting for a home loan. These offers often provide you with a slightly better home loan interest rate than the market.

Factors That Affect Home Loan Interest Rates 

Everyone wants to get a home loan at interest rate that is as low as possible. By entering  the rate of interest you are eligible for in our home loan EMI calculator, you can get an accurate and instantaneous estimate of how much home loan interest you will have to pay. But all that depends on a myriad of factors – and can even be brought down to make the home loan more affordable for you!

Keep these 8 factors that affect your home loan interest rates in mind while negotiating a favourable interest rate on your home loan:

  • Income: Naturally, the amount and nature of your monthly income tell the lender a lot about your loan repayability. The more regular, stable and higher it is, the lower will be the risk associated with providing you with a home loan. Consequently, the lower will be your interest rate!
  • Loan Amount: Of course, all home loan calculations are made on how much loan amount you are opting for. That much can also be seen in the home loan EMI calculator! Generally, higher loan amounts may yield a higher interest rate.
  • Interest Rate Type: Another way you can influence the home loan interest rate is by choosing between a fixed interest rate and a floating interest rate. While the latter is subject to fluctuations, the former is often higher.
  • Credit Score: One of the most important home loan documents required at the time of loan processing is your credit report. Having a good credit history and score, i.e., usually, 750+ CIBIL score, makes you eligible for getting a lower home loan interest rate.
  • Type of Employment: Remember how we mentioned income as a factor? Well, the type of your income is also a big factor – namely employment type. As a rule of thumb, every lender has separate interest rate slabs for salaried and self-employed applicants. As a comparison, interest rates for salaried applicants are generally lower.
  • Type of Home Loan: Interest rates can also differ on the kind of home loan you want to take up. Compared to generic home loans, a specialised home loan like plot loans, land loans or top-up loans might result in a higher interest rate.
