Home Loan

The State Bank of India offers a variety of SBI Home Loan schemes to individuals so that they can build their dream house. The loans are provided to all kinds of individuals who match the relevant eligibility criteria including rural customers under different products designed specifically for different needs.


Why SBI Home Loans?

SBI has developed a strong sense of trust among the masses with its loan processing methods and low rates. The bank was awarded ‘The Most Preferred Home Loan Provider’ title Awaaz Consumer Awards and also the ‘Most Preferred Bank’ Award in a survey carried out by TV 18 in association with AC Nielsen – ORG Marg in 21 cities across India.


SBI offers home loans at low processing charges making them affordable for the customer. The rates of interest are also low compared to interest rates charged on Home loans by other providers and interest is charged on a daily reducing balance method which considers the balance at the end of the day for interest calculation. There are no hidden costs or administrative charges which increase the liability burden on the customer and the charge structure is both transparent and reasonable. There is no pre-payment penalty levied on the customer if he or she makes a pre-payment against the loan to reduce the liability and consequently the quantum of interest charged.


The bank operates through a wide range of over 15, 969 branches which makes it easier for the customer to avail a SBI Home loan from the branch nearest to his or her current residence or the proposed residence.
