SBI Home Loan Review
SBI Home loans has some of the best schemes as compared to other home loans in India. Their interest rate is very attractive (being low). They have made special provisions for easy payment of the loans in simple and easy installments. It can be availed by young working professionals making it easily accessible for all. Even self-employed as well business professionals can also get home loans easily (something many other banks cringe about). They would be required to furnish details and corresponding documents showing the income source. The property would be required to be deposited as collateral security. Once all the installments including the principal as well as interest has been paid off the property is handed over to the owner.
Being a government recognized bank people greatly trust and bank with SBI for their efficient services. The interest rates do fluctuate with changes in the government policy but charges are reasonable too. The loan amount will be sanctioned based on the income of the person. Tax benefits can also be gained on the principal as well as interest under the Income Tax Act of 1961. Again customers who wish to pay and finish off the loan can also make lump sum payment. But this would be subject to prepayment charges.
I would recommend SBI home loans if you are looking for a home loan for less interest rate and fees, provided you don’t mind going to the bank for getting things done. Some other banks will come to your doorsteps to get things done but I’ve noticed that they usually come with hidden charges. SBI doesn’t have hidden charges or unusual charges on trivial things. However banking is not pain-free or effortless compared to the new-generation banks.
