Sberbank has taken first place in four categories of the Euromoney Real Estate Survey 2017: Best Bank in Russia, Best Bank in Central and Eastern Europe, Best Loan Finance Bank in Russia, and Best Loan Finance Bank in Central and Eastern Europe.
“The results of the survey show that the real estate sector really appreciates our efforts to shape a transparent, safe, hi-tech and accessible real estate market in Russia. Over the past 18 months Sberbank has carried out large-scale work to optimise the process of issuing mortgages, which included automating processes and cutting costs to the largest possible extent. This has let us bring new services to the market and enhance our product offering. As a result, Sberbank has delivered excellent results in 2017 – over the first eight months of the year we provided 570.9 bln roubles worth of mortgages, a 38% increase year-on-year. Our DomClick service is used by more than 10% of our borrowers, and more than 100,000 people have used the electronic title registration service,” said Nikolay Vasyov, Head of Sberbank’s DomClick Division.
In 2016, Sberbank launched an online service called DomClick, which lets clients apply for mortgages, receive mortgage approvals, select real estate properties, and get them approved by the bank. A DomClick mobile application is also available. Electronic Registration, a joint service of Sberbank and Rosreestra (the Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography), lets buyers of apartments in new buildings register contracts with developers online.
2.6 million Russian households are mortgage clients of Sberbank.
