In these days of rented everything, it might not seem much to be paying rent for a house to live in. But, if the same money that is going out in rent, was to go out to pay an EMI, at the end of the tenure, you’d actually have an investment in your name; and more than an investment, you’d have a home in your name. So what’s stopping you? If the idea of securing a home loan seems daunting, we have 10 easy steps that you can follow to secure your home loan.
a) Start saving for a down payment
Start putting away money every month for the down payment of your dream house. It can be as small an amount as the cost of a meal at a fine dine restaurant or the cost of a new jacket that you want. Start slowly so it does not pinch you. Put it away in another bank account or in an FD so that the money keeps growing and you don’t count on that for your regular needs.
b) Check your credit (CIBIL) score
Having a good CIBIL score is paramount to getting home loans easily. All you need to do to ensure this is to pay your credit card payments and your other loan payments on time. Keep an eye on your CIBIL score to make sure that it is at a healthy level. If it’s not, work on improving it.
c) Get your financial documents in order
Keep all your financial records in order. Ensure that you have detailed documents regarding your salary, savings, loans, taxes and returns. This is usually the part that leads to the most inertia while booking a home loan. Keeping it ready and at hand always, lets you be prepared. You can keep adding in any new details regarding investments etc into this roster.
d) Start tracking interest rates
Keep a close eye on bank interest rates. Knowing these interest rates will help you understand the markets and the banks that you want to have a long term relationship with. Also, if for example, you are looking at an SBI approved project and you find that the SBI bank rates have been consistently good for you, it’s an easy decision to make.
