Raiffeisenbank announces the commencement of its New Year mortgage promotion. From December 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012 the rates for all rouble mortgage programmes will be reduced by 0.75 percentage points.
Under the promotion the minimum rouble mortgage rate will be 11.25%. The reduced rates are valid for all Raiffeisenbank mortgage programmes (loans to buy property in the primary or secondary market, the acquisition of property secured by real estate, refinancing, loans for any purpose).
«The current market dynamics differ somewhat from the pre-crisis dynamics, when the demand for mortgages was growing very rapidly. However, at this point we have no reason to believe that there will be a decrease in the demand for mortgages, especially in the run up to New Year,» said Anastasia Peregrimova, the head of the Mortgage Lending Development Division at Raiffeisenbank.
Raiffeisenbank regularly improves the terms of its mortgages: in summer the minimum mortgage rate was reduced, and in autumn the rates for all mortgage programmes were reduced by 0.5 percentage points as part of a seasonal promotion.
