    A colleague of mine did this. They were able to borrow 50% of the money in your 401K; there is small condition that should you lose your job, you will need to repay the money the next day or something like that. The short answer is - Yes you can borrow. You pay interest towards yourself so it's not too bad.

      When you change the job u have to pay it in 60 day’s or if you don’t it defaults to withdraw. If it defaults to withdraw you have to pay taxes and 10% penalty

    My 401k loan is at 5.75% interest rate. Which is better than personal loan offers i received. I will go with 401k

      Does it matter whether you are buying a house in India or USA ?

    The interest that you pay for 401k loan will be given back to you as you took loan from urself

    You don't have enough of a credit history to qualify for a low interest rate loan in the US
