With the rising property rates, it has become impossible for medium to low income family to buy a house. Moreover even if they decide to buy it, getting home loan is another challenge and almost every lender will reject the application. Apart from the income criteria, banks and financial institutions also check applicant’s credit history for calculating the risks involved in their repayment capacity. But considering the demand from lower income group individuals, Axis bank has started providing housing loans (Asha Home Loans) to such poor salaried individuals. So having an own house has become a reality now. With timely EMI payment, such individuals can also start building their credit history which can also help them in getting loan or credit card in the future. Check out how to improve credit score.
