Research background: The paper describes the comparison and subsequent analysis of products for housing finance in the Slovak Republic through the use of financial resources from banks and savings companies. The development and boom of the real estate market in Slovakia was mainly due to new forms of financing, such as mortgage loans. At present, there are various combinations of credit products on the market with favorable declining interest rates, but also support from the state in the form tax bonus on paid interests or state premium for contractual savings for housing. The development of housing loans also has a significant impact on the Slovak economy. Rising household indebtedness is a problem beyond the financial sector.
Purpose of the article: Over-indebted households may have difficulty repaying loans in bad times or their consumption significantly reduce, which will exacerbate the process of resuming economic growth. The consequences of rising household indebtedness therefore need to be addressed from a wider perspective, including its economic-social impacts. The fundamental purpose of the article is to analyze the current possibilities of housing financing in the Slovak Republic and determine the most appropriate form.
Methods: In order to fulfill our stated goal, we apply a method of comparison, analysis and synthesis.
Findings & Value added: Finally, we formulate our own view of which form of financing housing is the most suitable based on the examined parameters.
Key words: mortgage loan / tax bonus on paid interests / contractual savings
