In simple terms, a home loan is the kind of loan that assists the borrower to buy a primary or investment residence.
In a home loan, the borrower transfer’s the purchased property’s title to the lender until such time where the home loan is entirely paid off, and other terms and conditions have been met. The interest levied on the home loan can be fixed interest rate or floating interest rate. You can pay back the home loan in equal monthly instalments (EMIs) which comprise both of your principal amount and the interest amount. In case of a home loan, the purchased property acts as a collateral.
Hence a home loan is a secured loan available at moderately low-interest rates. This loan is usually availed for a long-term and can be availed for a period of 30 years. The longer the loan tenure, the lower is the EMI.
