What Makes SBI Home Loan Interest Rates the Best for Customers?

SBI home loan interest rates remain the best owing to numerous reasons discussed below.

Lowest in the Market

SBI offers home loans at interest rates as low as 9.15%, thereby reducing the EMI significantly and raising the eligibility for numerous customers who could not get the nod earlier. The reduced EMI will further translate into reduced interest payments.

Special Rates for Salaried

Salaried will get interest rates lower than their self-employed counterparts by as much as 0.15% per annum.

Risk-grading Based Rates

SBI Home Loan Interest Rates are based on the risk profile of the customers too. In case you pose less credit risk to the bank, you could get lower interest rates than the ones putting the lender at a greater risk. Now, the risk profile is assessed based on your credit score and overall financials. If your credit score is say above 750 and you earn high, the interest rate can lessen considerably.

SBI Home Loan Interest Rates for Existing Customers

If you are an existing borrower of a home loan at SBI whose interest rate is linked to base rate or MCLR, you have the chance to save more. SBI has started offering home loans based on Repo Rate, the rate at which the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) lends to commercial banks, from October 1, 2019. This rate is called External Benchmark Rate (EBLR), which has fallen to 6.65% following 115 basis point reduction in the repo rate so far in 2020. After adding some spread to it, SBI home loan interest rates come as 9.15% - 11.30% The rate is at least 30-40 basis points lower than that of MCLR-based home loans. Although SBI has cut both MCLR and base rate recently, they are still higher than EBLR-based home loans.

If your home loan is on a Marginal Cost of Lending Rate (MCLR), the rate reduction will not have an immediate impact. Your loan rate will change every year based on the prevailing rates. So, if your loan was booked on 1st January 2018, the interest rate will reset 1st January every year based on the prevailing MCLR rates, irrespective of the changes made by the bank in between. In contrast, the EBLR-based home loan rates will change a few days or a month after the RBI changes the repo rate. So, there’s a greater degree of rate cut transmission with EBLR home loans. You can thus switch your existing MCLR or base rate home loan portfolio to that of EBLR and save on your payments. The bank will charge a fee of INR 5,000+18% GST for the same.

SBI Home Loan Balance Transfer Rates

Already paying the home loan somewhere? Does that lender charge a greater rate of interest on the loan? In that case, you can transfer the outstanding loan balance to SBI and pay a lower EMI. The lower rate will further result in the reduction of interest outgo over time. But how much can you save on a balance transfer? That will depend on the outstanding balance amount, the difference in the rate of interest, and the time by which you transfer the outstanding balance. Let’s consider an example to get an idea of the savings on offer.

Example – You availed a home loan of INR 60 lakh for 20 years 3 years back at 9.00%. In 3 years time, the outstanding balance would reduce to INR 56,30,202. So, if you want to transfer the said balance to SBI, the rate of interest could be 7.55%-8.05% in the present scenario. Suppose you get the deal at 7.60%, how much can you save? The table below will give you the answer.

Repayment AspectsDetails

Interest Rate8.60%
Tenure20 Years
EMIINR 52,450

Interest Paid Over 3 years + Interest Payable Over the Next 17 YearsINR 59,03,404
Savings on a Balance TransferINR 6,84,540
