How to get a Home loan from SBI

SBI is the largest bank in India and offers a variety of home loans to suit the needs of different individuals. It is possible to submit the loan application online and upload the necessary documents or you can visit a branch and apply in person.

Loan approval and credit score: In general, you stand the best chance of securing a home loan if you have a credit score of 750 or above. Before you apply for a loan, obtain your credit report to check your latest credit score and to see if you have any credit issues that might impact your loan application. If you have a low score, wait to improve your score before applying.

Here are some of the features of the SBI home loan offers:

Age: You need to be between 18-70 years (by which age the loan needs to be repaid) to be eligible for a home loan.   

Amount: The loan amount will be dependent on your income, repayment capacity, age, assets and liabilities, and value of property to be purchased, among other factors. 

Loan period: Also depends on your repayment capacity, credit profile etc. The repayment period can go up to a maximum of 30 years, depending on your age when the loan was sanctioned.

Interest rate: It is best to check what the current rate on the various home loan products is. For instance, women applying for the Her Ghar loan can avail of a concessional interest rate on their home loan.
