About Home Loan

Home loan is one of the most vital financial decisions of your life. In India, you can avail home loans mainly from two types of lenders: the housing finance companies such as LIC Housing Finance Ltd., DHFL and commercial banks like SBI or HDFC. However, most of the lenders sponsor 80% of the property value as a home loan. The remaining 20% needs to be capitalized as a down-payment from your side. Although most of the NBFC banks can provide funds up to 90% of the property market value, the amount of loan sanctioned totally depends on your eligibility. The best course of action before applying for a home loan is to first calculate the home loan EMI using the home loan EMI calculator at Afinoz.com and then choose the best available options from different lenders.
