 The year 2018 saw a 24% increment in the purchase of the residential property. This number to increase even in the coming years. The substantial growth in the economy in India is followed by the exponential growth in the real estate sector.   

Purchasing your own home is a huge investment, and takes a financial toll on your budget. To minimize the stress many financial institutions and banks offer loan against property. The whole mortgage loan process is designed for the benefit of the customers.

Considering the benefits it has towards the customer, many lenders make it easy to apply for such loans with minimum documentation and straight forward application process.

But before we start discussing mortgage loans, let us first address explain the difference between home loan and mortgage.

Yes, many times we use this term interchangeably without realizing these two terms are different altogether

What is the Difference Between Home Loan and Mortgage Loan?

    To utilize a loan from the market, you need to provide some kind of collateral as security. This is true for all kinds of mortgage available. So in other words, a home loan is a type of mortgage loan. While you can use other assets as security in a home loan, mortgage works specifically by burrowing your property as security. But most home loans in India are mortgage loans and hence the confusion. Bank can seize your property in case you fail to repay the loan.

    Home loan has a pre-set nature - means you can use the allocated money only for the purchase of the property. While the mortgage money can be used for other purposes,

    In the case of home loans, the payment is done directly into the seller’s account to make sure the funds are properly utilized. In the case of mortgage loans, there is freedom to use the money anywhere they chose and is transferred in borrower’s account.

    The interest rates you pay on home loans is relatively less than a mortgage loan.
