Everybody wants to own a home,once you have decided to take a home the very next thing that comes to your mind is to take a loan,and when it comes to loan ,many questions arises like from where to take a loan? how to take a loan? how to choose between fixed rate and floating rate?
This is the place ,where we need to think twice while coming to a proper decision .because there are lot of option's in the market and we need to choose among the best.
Home loan is no long a far away,you don't have to run away to get it approved for yourself ,it has been simplyfied a lot. There will be a lot of plans,advertisement,easy installment which will be tempting you take a loan now and then.and the banking and finance industry are also there to help you out according to your desire.
The criteria and eligibility for taking loan has also been rationalized and any one can plan to take a home loan by fulfilling the bottom lines.
But then the question comes in mind that whether you should take a home loan or not because it is a long term assessment and you should not fall in debt.
I will advice you to keep it below 25% of your present net income,because you should have some reserve for any unforeseen situation,it may be healthcare,financial, or any other expenses.
Don't take any decision based upon estimation on future project.as the home loan is a long term liability in this period your income may keep on rising,but so do your liabilities and expenses and may be the vice-verse. what will you do then?always keep all this thing in mind.
You should keep a balance between liabilities,expenses and income,and also remain stress free of the burden of EMI.
Life is to live about all the good memories that you and your family will cherish you by, when you are not there ,but do you think that it will continue .Because nothing is secured today,neither your life nor your job.
Until you are single ,its different but when you have a family your share of responsibility increases .Since quite few years after load's of hard work, time and energy you have acquired wealth,share of investment .Now think for a moment what will will after few year's when you are out of the picture.Will the wealth that you have acquired would suffice your family say after ten year's,as everyone one is aware of the economic condition overall.
We need to plan accordingly .in order to give a better life to your family so that there might no shattering due to lack of finance to your kids.Term life insurance can protect your family 'financial problem when your are not there by helping them for college and living expenses.
In order to secure your family of an unfortunate accident and leaving them in a state of misery and to ensure a safer future of your family you can choose with any policies that benefit you. however the best part of term insurance is that it is for a shorter period of time.This policy will secure your family from debt when you are not there.This policies also help in paying any loan/debt taken by you to own a home or a car when you are gone .say if you have bought a home and you need to pay monthly installment.If your spouse dies unfortunately then the dependent can pay off the bill in due date what ever be the situation of your home.
The term duration of the policies is totally dependent upon you as per your need , you can opt for a short term or long term,you should renew your policy term annually.Because life is unpredictable .We don't know what will happen tommorow.So it's better to secure your future tommorow
