Some Important Home Loan Facts:

  1. One of the basic home loan facts is that it is a prerequisite for most banks that the borrower take out an insurance policy to protect the home loan. This ensures that they will get their money back if the borrower dies or is for some other reason incapable of servicing his or her loan. This is because, such an agreement between borrower and lender is over extended periods of time. Unless the borrower finds the financial means to prepay it in part of in totality, a home loan is generally repaid over several years.
  2. For any loan, rate of interest and principal are two basic components involved while calculating EMI payment. A major part of the amount goes in paying up the interest, in the first few years of your loan repayment tenure. After you have paid much of the interest, the trend reverses after a few years and the principal repayment increases. Banks have to increase tenure up to a certain point, as today home loan interest rates are high everywhere. The EMI you pay fails to cover the loan amount, if the interest rate continues to go up. These are some important home loan facts which you should be aware of before buying a home.
