SBI Realty Home Loan

The State Bank of India (SBI) along with its many loans offers the customer the SBI Realty Home Loan. This loan is provided to customers who wish to purchase a plot for construction of a dwelling unit. The construction of the house needs to be completed within 5 years from the date that the loan has been sanctioned.

This loan comes with the flexibility of availing another loan for constructing a house on the land that is purchased. A customer is, therefore, allowed to avail two simultaneous loans with the SBI Realty Home Loan.

The maximum loan amount that can be lent to the customer is up to 15 crores. The loan borrower is given a maximum duration of 10 years to repay this loan.

SBI Realty Home Loan Features and Benefits

The key features of the SBI Realty Home Loan are as follows:

Loan for Plots: As the name suggests, the loan is meant for purchase of an undeveloped property rather than an apartment or bungalow ready for possession. Although, it allows the customer to take an additional home loan to construct the house after the plot is bought. Both the loans can be operated simultaneously.

Interest Rate: The interest rate is among the lowest in the market – with 9.35% (MCLR+20 basis points) for women and 9.4% (MCLR+25 basis points) for others. The rate is floating, based on a daily reducing balance and the benchmark is 1-year MCLR.

Joint Loan: The customer can add the income of their spouse or children living with them, if their salary accounts are held in the SBI to improve their chances of getting a loan. If the wife/daughter (unmarried) takes part in the loan, the discounted interest rate will be applicable while paying off the loan.

Fees: The customer does not have to pay any additional fees for making pre-payments or partial payments towards the loan amount. In fact, it is recommended to deposit every additional amount in the loan account whenever feasible, so that the amount is reduced from the principal amount the interest is charged on the lower amount instead.

Reward Points: The customer can become a part of the State Bank Rewardz programme, which gives him/her reward points on each transaction.
