A "low interest" loan shouldn't mean you have very little interest in paying it back!
  • Home Renovation Loans

    There are several loan options in the market for renovating your house. It is a popular misconception that only a home loan can be availed to renovate or refurbish your house. Some of the popular loans one can avail for renovating a house are mentioned below.

    • Personal Loan – A personal loan is an unsecured loan offered by a lending institution for any personal requirements. A personal loan is approved based on your credit score, and is considerably easier to obtain when compared to other loans. However, the rates of interest on these loans are on the higher side. Your monthly income also plays a major part in the approval process of personal loans.
    • Home Loan Top-Up – As the name suggests, this is a loan provided on top of your existing home loan. However, one must already have an existing home loan to avail a home loan top up. These kinds of loans are sanctioned only when all your previous home loan EMIs are paid on time and are usually associated with low interest rates.
    • Home Improvement Loan – This is arguably one of the best options available to you if you are looking to renovate your home. This is so because these loans come with long tenures and reasonable rates of interest.

    Loan Comparison Table

      Personal loan Home loan top up Home improvement loan
    Interest rate 15% - 25% 10.5% - 14% 9% - 12.5%
    Loan amount For salaried – EMI should not exceed 40% of monthly income For self-employed – Depends on profits Depends on bank Up to 90% of the cost of your house
    Loan tenure 1 – 5 years Up to 10 years Up to 15 years
