EMI – all you need to know
Buying own home is a dream come true for many. If you are looking to buy a home, then there is no better time than today. Thanks to several government initiatives the cost of homes, especially in the affordable segment have reduced. What’s more, even the rate of interest on home loans have marginally reduced. With the effective reduced EMI, your dream home will now be easier to purchase than ever before.
If you are planning to purchase home, then planning your finances is the first crucial step. Apart from the cost of the property, you will need to take into consideration down payment, stamp duty and registration charges. Depending on the developer, there may also be maintenance charges that you may need to pay for a year or more. While the expenses may seem a daunting, EMIs will make the process easier. Let’s understand what an EMI is and how it’s calculated.
What is an EMI?
When you borrow money from any financial institute, you will have to repay it in small monthly instalments, inclusive of interest, over a specific period of time. This amount is called as equated monthly instalment or EMI. The amount to be paid every month varies according to the amount borrowed, rate of interest levied by the lender and the tenure of the loan.
Once you have shortlisted the property, it’s prudent to calculate the estimated EMI you will need to pay each month. A clear understanding about the outflow towards the housing loan every month will help you manage your finances. It will also help estimate the loan amount that can be availed and help in assessing the own contribution requirements and cost of the property.
How to calculate EMI?
Calculating EMI using an Excel can be a cumbersome task, thankfully, you will find easy to use EMI calculators like Lodha’s home loan calculator. Here, you will need to input the amount of loan you require, select a tenure and input the rate of interest. The calculator will display the EMI amount, as well as the interest you will end up paying over the principal amount borrowed.
Lodha’s home loan EMI calculator will give a fair understanding about the ratio of the principal amount to the interest due, based on the of the tenure and interest rate selected.
How to use Lodha’s EMI calculator?
