Nedbank Homeloans - Rumored To Be One Of The Best, But Are They?

By Tom Martens

A home represents not only comfort and memories, but also your biggest investment you will ever make. Because it is so important, nothing should be overlooked. After you find a house you want, it all starts with the lender.

One feature buyers want in a home loan is flexibility. Nedbank is dedicated to providing flexibility to its home loan customers. Nedbank home loans can be tailored to suit the individual needs of the home buyer. This flexibility makes Nedbank very attractive, especially to first time buyers. However, veteran home buyers will also find a Nedbank product to suit their needs.

Nedbank home loans can be used to buy either an existing home or vacant land. Build the house of your dreams or move into one. Nedbank will finance between 70-100% of a vacant lot as well as cover 100% of the home?s value. A lot of this coverage falls under your credit history and the value of the property.

Nedbank offers both fixed and variable interest rate home loans, as well as Nedbank Accelerated Payments, which enable the buyer to pay off their home loan faster than what is agreed upon in the home loan contract. Talk about a phenomenal way to say money on capital and interest.

In order to qualify for a Nedbank home loan, you must be a South African resident with a good credit record. There are minimum monthly income requirements as well. Before you apply for a home loan, check your credit report. If there are any errors, contact the credit bureaus to have them removed.

First check for errors and then check for high credit balances. High credit balances lower your score, and increase the interest rate on a home loan. Also, set aside a few months worth of loan repayments, which is known as reserves. Banks demand reserves, so this is not an option.

Buying a home means paperwork, too. You will need proof of identity, income verification, bank statements and the offer to purchase agreement. Make sure you have all the necessary documentation gathered before you apply for a home loan in order to speed up the process and not delay. A delay could cause you to lose out on your home purchase.

Once you get a home loan, you will have to make monthly installment payments on the loan. The monthly payment consists of capital, interest, home insurance premiums, an administrative fee and possibly a life insurance premium.

When you are ready to purchase a home, make sure you see a qualified lender. They can review your situation, answer any questions you might have and develop a home loan proposal to meet your specific needs, while putting you on the path to a new home. - 31382
