Save money on your home loan with Regrob


How do you plan to arrange finance for buying a new home? For most of us, the answer would be a combination of both of these.



1) Personal savings.
2) Home loan from a bank or other financial institutions.


So you see, your home loan makes up a huge chunk of your dream home decision. And your home loan eligibility depends greatly upon your current income to be specific. This is because your current income determines your ability to pay EMIs. Generally, your monthly income will define the chances of repaying the loan and timely payments of EMIs. If you are a salaried person, your monthly income will be taken into account and if you are self-employed, in that case your annual profit would decide your home loan maximum eligibility.


The loan amount basically depends upon the net income of an individual. Most of the banks lend a home loan up to 60 times of an individual’s net income. For example, if your take home salary is Rs. 30,000, you are eligible to get a loan of around Rs.18 lakhs.


Available income is a major factor considered for your home loan eligibility. It is considered on the amount left with you after deduction of any EMI amount that you are currently paying for any kind of loan. Your Home Loan Eligibility will be calculated after deductions of the EMIs that you are paying. Hence, available income will decide your position and capability as to the amount of loan you can take and EMIs you can pay. The banks advise you to restrict your EMI to 35% to 45% of your monthly income so that you can pay this debt without burning a hole in your pocket.

The left over amount can be used for other monthly household expenditures and any other emergency requirements. Though it is good to be hopeful about rise in your income, it is not advisable to opt for a bigger EMI on the basis of this alone. We advise you to opt for an EMI amount that will enable you to set aside at least 15-20% as monthly savings. Before borrowing, determine how much EMI you can afford and understand the circumstances that can impact your EMI.

Since your EMI, that too one you are going to pay for your home loan is a significant amount of expense on your monthly budget and it is bound to stay with you for next few years. So, before signing the dotted line, take time to consider all the factors such as your present income and lifestyle, the prospect of increase or decrease in your income, your ability/chances of getting another job in case of loss of present job, your future expenditures, retirement plans and goals. Make your decision only after you consider all of these things.
