The State Bank of India’s (SBI) Singapore arm generally offers comfortable introductory home loan interest rates. The bank’s rates tend to increase significantly after 1 to 3 years, so it is best to consider SBI’s loans if you are willing to refinance every few years.
SBI is a decent option for borrowers that plan to refinance their loans after a few years. This is because the bank offers some competitive introductory interest rates but less affordable rates following the first few years of its loan’s lifespan. It is also a good option for borrowers seeking to refinance their home loans due to the combination of credits offered to these borrowers.
SBI charges a few fees that are standard among home lenders. These fees include partial repayment fees, full redemption penalties, and cancellation fees. The table below details SBI’s fees by home loan type.
