Dhanlaxmi Bank Home Loans Overview:
Housing is both a basic necessity and an investment. While first homes fulfil the need of shelter, second homes as well as renovation of homes have more to do with enhancement of status and investment for future. Building or buying a house also helps get tax deductions on both payment of principal and interest. Additionally, real estate is a hugely appreciating asset, adding to the enchantments of housing as an investment.
It is not possible for everyone to have enough money to buy or build a house in these times. An average 2-bedroom flat in a city costs anything between Rs. 35 lakh to Rs. 50 lakh. The best way for an average Indian family to own a house is to take a home loan from banks. Many banks offer loans at attractive interest rates. The biggest advantage of home loans is that the tenure of loans is large – 20 to 30 years – which helps reduce your monthly repayment burden.
Dhanlaxmi Bank offers home loans that can be used for any of the following purposes:
- Construction of a house
- Purchasing a plot
- Purchase of a ready-to-occupy house
- Renovation of existing house
- Extension of existing house
- Transfer of an existing home loan from another bank
