Home Loan Interest Rates and EMI in Top 15 Banks Purchasing a home is a big financial decision & not everyone is able to generate their own money to buy a property. Most of the people rely on financial institutions to provide home loans. It is the most common way of getting finance for getting property. The RBI has reduced the repo rate to increase liquidity in the market as this has resulted into less rate of interest on home loans. For the forthcoming festive season, certain banks have already waived the transaction fees on home loans. You do not want to skip the discounts offered in the current market if you are an end-user looking for a home. In the past month, home loan interest rates have stayed muted. Despite an uptick in the number of cases of COVID-19 in India, economic development has steadily begun to gather traction once again. While home loan interest rates have not changed significantly in the past month, certain banks have now raised their loan interest cost premiums for borrowers whose credit scores have fallen below a certain amount.
Therefore, home loan applicants should be vigilant about their credit score, and if the score slips, their loan will become more expensive.

Make use of your strong credit score. c)High income-A individual making a high income is more likely to get lower rate and higher prices.
d)Apply to current bank-A clear agreement with the bank allows you to use a large volume of credit and without any trouble at a reasonable interest rate on your home loan. e)Keep all documentation relating to property-It is very important to retain and preserve all property records with you as it allows the landlord to better recognise your property and its valuation and therefore trust your profile. f)Move your home loan to a lower EMI- To save your funds, you can move your current home loan to a lender offering a lower rate on your home loan.
