The Covid-19 pandemic situation has reiterated the fact that owning an apartment is more advantageous than dealing with the uncertainties of rented accommodations. People are also increasing becoming cognizant of the importance and significance of real estate – as an asset class in their investment basket, also proving to be a reliable investment offering with steady returns compared to other high-risk investments.
Advantage of lowest home loan rates
To support this trend, the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) policy decisions have also encouraged this trend with slash repo rates by 0.75 basis points (bps). This allows banks to offer the best home loans to its customers. This has resulted in very attractive home loan rates presenting potential home buyers with an opportunity that cannot be missed. The steep slash has brought interest rates on home loans by public and private sector banks to their lowest, around 7%, lowest in over a decade. With these drop-in interest rates, it allows for considerable savings while creating an asset for investment purpose.
Furthermore, the buyers get to use the savings resulting from a reduced pay out of installment (EMI) to avail a top-up loan, which in turn is also available at lower interest rates.
Despite the mild slowdown that the realty sector has been facing in times of COVID-19, the current scenario presents opportunities for buyers to leverage technology and slashed home rates to make their dreams a reality. So, there is no doubt that, it is certainly the best time for those chasing a life goal to own a house, more so for those waiting for the right time to take the plunge. If you’re among them, then wait no more.
