matters – Financial institute provide you home loan on the basis of your paying capacity. Chances of getting a home loan at an early stage of career, say 20’s or 30’s with a stable income are higher than at a later stage. This is because home loan tenures are generally longer and lending money to a borrower who is nearing to retirement as it is harder to advance a loan to him or her for an extended period like 25-30years. But in this scenario go for a shorter term, though your EMI will be higher but your chances of approval increases and you would be paying less interest due to smaller tenure.

Know beforehand how much loan you can apply for- Try home loan calculator to know how much loan you can get. You need to see that your fixed obligation to income ratio (FOIR) like your EMIs, should not exceed 50% of your monthly income. If you have an existing loan, try to add your spouse or family member as a co-applicant, given he/she is gainfully employed too to increase your borrowing potential.

Job Stability- An applicant who has been there in the present job for at least two years is preferred over someone who has had too many job changes in a short while. All paperwork are in place- Proper documentation like your income proof, KYC , updated bank statements are some of the essentials required for swift approval of home loan application. If your loan application gets rejected in the first instance, do not keep applying for it as it would only reduce your creditworthiness showing you to be credit hungry. Instead, work on your eligibility before you reapply.

Go for a reputed builder- Before you finalize your home make sure that a reputed builder builds it and all the documents are legal. Banks prefer properties with clear titles, good resale value and no minor rights.

Too many applications in a short time frame: If you apply for loans from multiple sources within a short period of time, it signifies that you are short of credit and need to apply to several sources to make up the shortfall. Lenders are worried that you will not be able to repay your loan and will be inclined to reject your application.
