FY 2017-18 is a year of change for real estate in India. Several positive initiatives like an implementation of RERA, increased incentive under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, granting of nfrastructure status to affordable housing have increased the home buyers confidence in the market. The interest rate for home loans has become as low as 8.5%*. However, this is still very high as compared to the developed nations of the world.
In this blog, we will discuss a strategy by which you can pay your home loan interest without adding a financial burden on your income. We are talking about Systematic Investment Planning SIP. Depositing a small sum of money every month/quarter can provide you with a huge return. In this regard, we would say, ompound interest is the 8th wonders of the world
Talking about returns on investment, according to Bank Bazaar, SIP mutual funds generate around 12%-22% return in the last 5-10 years Source: Zee Business. As the amount is invested on a monthly basis, there is no impact of market volatility.
Let say you take a home loan of 10 lakh at the rate of 8.5% for a tenure of 20 years. The total repayment would be 20,82,776 Principal Amt. 10,000,00 & Interest Payable 10,82,776
SIP = 1000 Per month
Tenure = 20 years i.e. 240 months
The principal amount would stand Rs 2.4 lakh
Let assume as per the latest market trend, return on investment as 15%, so after 20 years, the return will be around 15.2 lakh. Even if we deduct the principal amount from this, we will get 12.8 lakh.
Return from SIP Interest on home loans
12.8 lakh - 10.8 lakh = 2 lakh
Whatever you will pay as an interest on your home loans for 20 years will be compensated by the return you will get from the maturity of the SIP funds after the same duration.
