10 Best Home Loans in India

The demonetization move announced by the Government of India on November 8, 2016 sent prices plummeting. The demonetization took ~86% of cash out of circulation, wiping out the black money that had inflated prices in the Indian housing market. The move brought home prices down as much as 30% in some of the key markets, like Delhi-NCR. Experts are predicting the property market slowdown to be short-lived, with banks reducing interest rates and the Real Estate Regulation and Development Act 2016 (RERA) getting implemented by the states, says an article in The Hindustan Times. In fact, the increased pressure on property prices may not continue beyond 2017. With prices and interest rates down, this may be just the right time to take a home loan in India.
