Home finance belongs to the top level of the growth pyramid and it is followed by services, technology and trading.
Home finance people get almost 3 times the money invested for a 20-yrs loan. Hence, you just need to get a customer once and your income for next 20 years is almost guaranteed.
ARPU (Average Revenue per User) in case of home loans is one of the highest across industries due to high Ticket Size of homes, which comes in Lakhs and now in Crores.
Home finance in India is still in a very embryonic stage with a very small percentage of people taking or getting home loans.
RERA, Aadhaar, Main streaming of real estate will lead to more and more organised real estate players in the market which will automatically lead to much higher and safer business for home finance companies.
Due to the strict loan conditions set by the Reserve Bank of India, we are still not at all a highly leveraged society, unlike the USA and other developed countries.
As a thumb rule, the more a country grows, over a period of time, the more interest rate gets reduced (like most developed economies have sub 1% or even negative interest rates). Hence, for a period of 20 years or more, this may be the best time to offer loans at one of the highest rates and hence great profitability as interest rates are going for a downtrend since past sometime.
Unlike banking, the net NPA levels are much lesser in home finance companies as compared to the banking sector.
Hence, home finance companies may be one of the top three sectors for next few years or even for decades as far as stock investments are concerned.

SBI Home Loan is excellent because I've a salary account with them. They offered me a interest rate of 9.5% approximately. I took the loan amount of Rs. 23 lakhs so far i have got only Rs. 16 lakhs since my building is under construction. My EMI is not yet started. They sanctioned the loan in 2 working days.

I got the better clarity about the loan process as well as the rate of interest in central bank of India is less than compared to others so i have chosen this bank and the Branch Manager helped me in a better way.

I took a home loan with PNB Housing Finance Ltd because the terms and conditions are very liberal at that time, I have been expecting higher loan amount for my purchase. They have fulfilled my requirements and its more than 90%. The rate of interest is little bit higher and they are not following RBI guidelines. When interest rate is increased, they have started charging more but not reduced when it got reduced.

I am not happy with rate of interest which was given by LIC Housing Finance. I have purchased the Flat in 2017August. The loan amount was 40L and its 15 years tenure. The processing fee is not applicable. The customer service is good. But every year, they are raising the interest rate which was not good.
Chosen the home loan from PNB housing but the charges are very high and the services are not upto the mark. Its Government undertaken organization hence i got the loan from them.
