I want to apply for a home loan with HDFC Ltd. I have come across the term ?equity home loan’. Is it in any way different from mortgage home loan? Can I borrow equity home loan for purchasing my first house?
When you mortgage a property that is already there on your loan, it is called as equity home loan. Mortgage home loan is the normal housing loan which we talk in general. Logically, you cannot borrow equity home loan for purchasing first house.
