I live in Sydney and am interested in buying an apartment in India (Bangalore/Cochin/Trivandrum). Do any banks consider home loan applications from NRI's in Australia.

Many of the bank websites that I checked out or contacted (ICICI, Citibank) only provide loans to NRI's from certain countries, and Australia is apparently not on the list.

    No hurt feeling, telling the truth.

  • Arin,

    Why am I not buying here instead? Because I dont intend to live here forever. I dont see what the big problem is with wanting to buy a house back home that I can live in when I choose to return.

    House prices going up as demand increases is a natural thing. Its a sign of a healthy economy. It has its benefits - more jobs for local builders, more availablity of rental homes, more money flowing in and eventually spent by the sellers etc.

    Besides, I'm not looking at paying above market rates or inflated prices and I'm not looking at it as a "sell it off when prices go up" sortof thing either.

    BTW Andy,
    Thanks for keeping on-topic :)
