So, buying a home is now cheaper.
This is how much you will save:
Adhil Shetty, CEO & Co-founder, BankBazaar.com, said, for instance, considering SBI home loan rates, if you are taking loan of Rs 40 lakh for a period of 25 years, your monthly EMI will come at Rs 32,479, when the interest is at 8.6% as compared to monthly EMI of Rs 33,842, when the interest rate was 9.1%. Which means, you are saving Rs 1,363 monthly.
Similarly, in the total interest payable, with the old interest rate, your total amount comes at Rs 61,52,658, which will now come down to Rs 57,43,726 with revised interest rates. Clearly, this shows, buying a home has become cheaper by Rs 4,08,932.
