Sure, a home loan helps you buy your dream house, but it is a significant financial commitment, which can affect your finances. Even a small change in the interest rate can bring a substantial difference in your overall cost of borrowing. In such a scenario, it could be frustrating to pay a home loan with a higher interest rate, where a lower interest rate home is available in the market. Thankfully, you have the option of a balance transfer. With Kotak Mahindra Bank, you can switch your loan for a lower interest rate and save money. Read on to know more.

What Is a Home Loan Balance Transfer?

A home loan balance transfer is a process through which you can transfer your loan for lower interest rates or better facilities and deals. The new lender repays your existing loan allowing you to repay the remaining EMI’s to them as per their interest rates. You can also get the benefit of a top-up loan and overdraft facility by switching the loan.

Things to Note before Switching Your Loan

  • Avoid opting for a home loan balance transfer in the later years of the loan tenure when you have paid almost the entire interest component. Switching your loan in the later years could cost you more than you save on the loan.
