Interest Rates

1) Credit/CIBIL History:
If you have good credit/CIBIL record then banks will definitely award you with a better rate of interest. This means that if you have taken a loan previously and managed to pay it off without defaulting then you will have a high credit/CIBIL score. Apart from the loan the banks also take into account payment of your credit card bill record.
2) Nature of Employment:
The nature of your job also plays a crucial role in determining the interest rate. Banks have different checks in place if you are a salaried individual vis-à-vis a self employed person. So if you are working with a reputed organization then banks will be able to extend a cheaper rate of interest. But if you are working with an organization that is not very well known then a higher rate will be charged. In case you have your own business then banks will give you a loan even if you are in an advanced age. On the other hand in case you are a salaried employee then a loan will not be extended if you are nearing the age of retirement.
3) Bank-Customer relationship:
If you approach the bank where you already have a bank account and you are a valued customer then banks may give you certain leeway. This mean you can negotiate with the bank for a cheaper interest rate. Most banks agree to give a concession of 0.5-1% on the interest rate.

The main focus of the Banks is on your repayment capacity. They analyze how comfortably you will be able to pay the EMIs throughout the tenure of the loan. This analysis is done based on the ratios like Fixed obligation to Income ratio (FOIR) and Installment to income ratio (IIR).

These ratios are expressed in percentage. FOIR includes all your fixed obligations including EMIs on your existing loans. IIR indicates the percentage of monthly home loan installment of the total income. These two ratios may vary based on actual salary details, years of experience, stability of income, professional qualification, future career growth prospects etc.

B) Property legal and technical clearance:

Therefore before finalizing a property one has to check whether the property is eligible for funding. Though it costs you little extra it is always better to check the legal and technical aspects before buying a property. Banks normally have loan to value (LTV) of 70-85% of value/ cost of the property considering type of property.

Apart from the above two mentioned parameters there is one additional and most important thing the Bank looks into is Credit history. Willingness to repay can be understood from ones past credit history and banking track.

Before selecting the Bank the following are the few points to be understood. All these will help you in selecting a right home loan lender for purchasing your dream home.
