Home Loan Interest Rate FAQs

What is the current interest rate on home loans?

The current interest rates applicable to home loans differ based on borrower type. Self-employed applicants can avail of a home loan with Bajaj Housing Finance with floating interest rates starting from 8.50%*. Salaried individuals can avail of a home loan with interest rates starting from 6.75%*. We also offer home loans at fixed rates of interest.

Which interest rate is better -- fixed or floating interest rate?

Which of the two is better depends on market conditions. Typically, a fixed rate of interest benefits you when the interest rates are on an upward trend, and a floating rate of interest benefits you when the interest rates are on a downward trend.

A ‘floating’ rate of interest refers to a rate that depends on the repo rate, which is an RBI benchmark. In other words, it increases or decreases in tandem with the repo rate. Under favourable market conditions, a reduced rate will lower the interest amount payable. At present, the repo rate is at an all-time low, which makes floating interest rate the more attractive option.

But before you choose one of the two, use a home loan interest calculator to assess the difference in the total amount payable with a fixed rate versus a floating rate to make an informed decision.

What is the processing fee for home loans?

When applying for a home loan with us, applicants are required to pay a processing fee of up to 6% of the total loan amount. Bajaj Housing Finance keeps its home loan processing fees nominal and affordable, ensuring minimum strain on the borrower’s finances when availing the advance.

What are the main factors that affect the interest rate of home loans?

In simple words, the interest rate depends on your credibility as a borrower, market conditions, and of course, the property in question. Below is a more detailed explanation for each of these.

  • Your credit profile: Your credit profile, including the credit score and report, establishes the risk involved in lending and determines the interest rate levied by us. Applicants with a reliable credit report and a high CIBIL score of 750 and above are typically offered the lowest home loan interest rates.
  • Benchmarking system: Our benchmarking system also impacts the interest rate for home loans. Home loans with a lending rate based on MCLR lack transparency and often prove to be expensive for borrowers. On the other hand, RLLR-based home loans are directly linked to external benchmarks, i.e., key policy rates such as repo rate, and reflect any changes within 3 months.
  • The property’s market value and location: The current market value and location of the property also play a key role in determining the lending rate. High-priced properties at well-connected locations remain a good proposition for lenders and attract competitive home loan interest rates.
