Are you planning to buy your dream house? Are you also among those who cannot afford to buy a house by paying lump sum money but need to arrange the required amount? If yes, then your dream to own a home is about to come true. You can take comfortably take a home loan or in other words buy a house on finance. There are number of home loan banks that offer housing loans. Some of the top names are ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, State Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, IDBI, Punjab National Bank, and Central Bank of India. In fact the list is endless. These banks offer home loans at a low interest rate. But before you are attracted to these banks and decide on which bank to consider, it is good if you take the right home loan advice from an experience and more importantly reliable person.

There are number of terms that will confuse you when you decide to buy a home on loan. This is because the housing finance companies throw around words like fixed rate, adjustable rate mortgages, and balloon mortgages. You need to be well aware of these words and then only the process becomes easy for you else these words are pretty confusing. The other important factors that need to be taken care are processing and administrative fee, rate of interest, computation method, pre-closure charges and the level of service.

Non Resident Indians (NRI) can also avail loans for building a house or for buying a plot or house in the country. Home loan interest rates for NRI do not vary much from that of the Indians living in this country. The only difference is that to them loans are sanctioned for a shorter period of time. However, calculation of eligibility is same as that of Indians living in the country.
