SBI is India’s top bank that also has its operations in Singapore. The bank offers a range of products and banking services. Housing loans are a popular product offered by the bank and come with a wide array of features and benefits. Let’s observe the features, various benefits and other aspects of the SBI Housing Loan.
SBI Home Loan
The Private Property Loan offered by SBI enables you to borrow money to purchase a private property in Singapore. You can pick a tenure of your choice depending on the quantum of the loan amount. Even HDB flats can be financed by this loan.
The commercial property loan provides you with the funds to purchase a commercial property and expand the scope of your business operations. Here again, different tenure options are available. Commercial property loans require separate eligibility parameters that need to be met.
SBI bridging loan
If you are expecting funds from a conclusive sale deal (of an existing private property in your name), you can apply for a bridging loan to cover for your down-payment amount. The bank usually funds up to 80% of the value of the property you wish to purchase. You can use the bridging loan to make the down-payment and close the loan once you receive funds from the successful sale of your private property.
Interest rates are available in a combination of packages. The bank offers both fixed and floating rates of interest. SIBOR-pegged rate packages are available too. You need to contact the bank for the exact rates that are available to you.
If the applicant is a Singaporean citizen or a Permanent Resident, the following documents need to be submitted:
You can visit any of the existing SBI branches in Singapore, fill out the application form and submit your documents. You can also send an SMS to (65)98333430, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

A. Yes, you can. SBI gives you the option of pre-closing your loan at a charge equivalent to about 1%-2% of your outstanding loan amount.
A. A SIBOR-pegged package is a rate package linked to a particular SIBOR frequency (1-month or 3-month SIBOR in most cases). The expected interest rate will be about 1 or 2 percentage points more than the Singapore Interbank Offered Rate.
A. A fixed-rate package is a rate package wherein your repayments on a monthly basis will remain fixed through the tenure of the loan.
