  1. Can you provide a link for all past home loan rates in 2015 (if you have compiled the data previously)? It would be of great help. Thank you.

  2. Hi Suresh,

    I am so new to this field. But I really want to get into commitments. I want to construct a cottage in our farm, back in our home town. I want to apply for loan and the amount I require is Rs 6,00,000/- . Just read a few comments and seems like SBI is best for ladies. I want to clear my loan ASAP. But the property is not in my name, its an ancestral property. Here lies the confusion.
    1) Please can you suggest best bank for a small amount of loan?
    2) If the property is not in my name can I still apply under – SBI (Women)?
    3) Any other suggestions that I need to be aware of?
    4) I want to clear my loan ASAP – can the EMI I pay vary every month (considering minimum amount covered) ?

    Please Help..

    Thanks in Advance!!!

    Have a Good Day!! 🙂

  3. Why Indiabulls Housing Finance is not listed here, Indiabulls Housing Finance is also great choice for home loans

  4. which is better – SBI maxgain homeloan payment method or loan prepayment? kindly advise in terms of interest gained and also adjusted for inflation(to get real money value) for a 15 yrs regular home loan of 50 lakhs which is prepaid at 5 lakhs every year and SBI maxgain homeloan method of parking the 5 lakhs in the OD account. My view is prepayment of normal homeloan method is of advantage as loan tenure is finished quickly and also savings of money in real value(as value of money depreciates every year due to steady upward inflation).
