Myths About Home Loans in India

The only financial institution with affordable hobby pricing is good, given the importance of price range in home purchases, a gullible borrower may choose the lender with the lowest interest rate on a modern domestic mortgage. Unfortunately, the interest rates on home loans fluctuate frequently and include some higher expenses. Instead of letting the current hobby price influence your choice, consider the bank’s prior performance to see how quickly it gave price discount advantages.

The financial institution will offer a mortgage with a 100% down payment

The guidelines established for the banking sector state that no financial institution in India is permitted to mortgage a buyer the whole amount of a property’s purchase price. In the best-case scenario, a financial institution will lend you up to 90% of the property’s cost as a mortgage. You must abide by a few terms and conditions to obtain that.

Co-lending is typically advantageous

Co-applicants for home loans are frequently encouraged to do so by banks. They provide the blindingly obvious defense that it enhances your borrowing ability. What they don’t tell you is that they can be looking for a backup borrower in case the first application has a setback that prevents them from making mortgage payments. Co-borrowing can be advantageous, but you should only choose it if you have thoroughly researched this arrangement.

I’ll get a mortgage if I make a lot of money

This is only true if you also have a few extra pennies on hand that you may use as payment. Additionally, banks are paying more attention to your credit score when granting requests for home mortgages. No matter how impressive your income package is, if your credit score is poor, your mortgage application may be rejected.

Lenders are mostly interchangeable

Domestic finance businesses (HFCs) and non-banking financing companies are not all same. Even though they may all work in the finance sector (NBFCs). The RBI immediately supervises Indian banks. HFCs and NBFCs were very recently introduced and are under the purview of the apex financial institution. Banks, HFCs, and NBFCs all function differently due to the fundamental differences in their design. Make sure you understand the difference before choosing your lender.

I’ll be informed about price reductions or hikes by the financial institution

Unfortunately, this never actually occurs. You should discuss how your financial institution responds to price increases or decreases as well as how the RBI modifies its repo price.

You can’t haggle on prices

Domestic loans are always subject to negotiation, just like any other commodity that is available for purchase. Depending on your ability to influence and negotiate, you may be able to convince the bank to provide you with a good domestic mortgage package.

I might immediately benefit from the RBI’s pricing reduction

Although all new floating-rate home loans in India are linked to the RBI’s repo rate, banks aren’t acting as quickly as they could in enforcing price reductions. However, any increase in the repo price might have an immediate impact on your monthly loan payments.
