Interest rates on mortgages at Raiffeisenbank have been cut by 0.5-1.25 % depending on the selected mortgage programme, the client category, the size of the down payment and the loan term. Now interest rates range from 10.25% to 14.25% per annum in roubles and from 9% to 10.75% in U.S. dollars.
"In the first quarter of 2013, growth in the demand for mortgage loans on market totalled about 20%, and in view of this trend we have decided to lower our mortgage rates. I would like to note that currently there is stable demand for the purchase of finished housing (more than half of the mortgages are granted precisely for such apartments), as well as for housing under construction," said Andrey Stepanenko, Deputy Chairman of the Board, Head of the Retail Private Individuals and Small Enterprises Directorate at ZAO Raiffeisenbank.
