  House financing-i is a Shariah-based financing facility to finance the purchase of all types of residential properties including houses, flats, apartments or condominiums.  
This financing facility can also be used to refinance existing housing loans, taken either from conventional housing loans or other house financing-i schemes.

The amount of financing provided by the Islamic banking institution depends on the market value (for completed properties only) or the price of the property. The margin of financing could be up to 95% of the property value, depending on the policy of the Islamic banking institution. The period of financing can be as long as 30 years or until the purchaser reaches age 65.

To find a house financing-i scheme that fits your financial needs, you should first shop around and compare the features of the similar products in the market. You should also pay extra-attention to the fees and charges imposed on these loans before making your final decision.
