Some people are lucky enough to be able to purchase a house outright. The vast majority of us, however, need a little help in financing our home purchase.

Bank Loan

If you have good credit, you can get very favorable interest rates on your home loan

If you have a solid credit history, a bank loan might just be your best bet. Your good credit standing will usually net you favorable interest rates, which can save you thousands of pesos over the term of your loan.

Please note that banks require a collateral to serve as a guarantee against the loan—in this case, that would be the title to the house itself.

NOTE: The figures and requirements given below are just indicative—please get in touch with your chosen bank for exact details.

Fast track your application

Before we close this piece, here’s a few tips that will help you get approved for a home loan:

Prepare the down payment

Homebuyers typically shell out a 10%-25% down payment on the property’s total contract price, then make up the difference through home financing options. Having the down payment ready demonstrates your financial capacity to lenders and makes you more likely to be approved for a loan.

Ready all your documents

Countless financing applications have been rejected not because of the lack of financial capacity but due to incomplete paperwork. Before submitting your application, make sure that all documentary requirements are in order—it can save you months of back-and-forth with the lender.
