Home loan tax benefits for homebuyers

While buying a property is no mean task, another decision that compounds the dilemma for home buyers is whether to opt for a ready-to-move house or an under-construction one. While there are pros and cons for both, the eventual choice will depend on what exactly the buyer is looking for vis-à-vis factors like the location, his needs and also whether the purchase is for investment or end-use. It must also be borne in mind that the tax benefits enjoyed by the buyer differ in both the above cases.

Read on for some useful suggestions before you sign on the dotted line to avail a home loan. 

Investment versus accommodation

Experts in the domain of real estate opine that an under-construction property is more viable if one is looking at it from the investment point of view. However, if in case any buyer is looking for instant and quality accommodation; ready-to-move-in homes are a clear winner. 

A sense of security

While the cost of a ready-to-move-in property maybe a little more than the under-construction ones, in the case of the former, a buyer gets to purchase what he sees. There is no risk of any changes in the specifications in the future. The construction quality, social and physical infrastructure, as well as the home loan eligibility, can be ascertained before buying such properties. Moreover, there are no risks of delays or escalating costs that provide a sense of security to the buyer.

Instant tax benefits for ready-to-move-in homes

This is a critical point for homebuyers to consider. For under-construction properties, the tax benefits only begin once they are completed, whereas buying a ready-to-move-in house makes you eligible for such sops from day one. Other tax benefits enjoyed when you make a ready-to-move-in house your home are:

1. If the property is self-occupied, interest deduction up to Rs 2,00,000 is allowed under Section 24 under the IT Act, including 1/5th of interest accrued during the construction phase.

2. If the property is let-out, the deduction of interest will be allowed up to the interest payment, without any upper limit. The principal amount is allowed a deduction of up to to Rs 1.5 lakh under Section 80C.

3. If the property is sold within five years, the deduction on the principal is added to the income.
