DBS rolls out VR mortgage app
DBS Bank has launched a mortgage app that lets Hong Kong homebuyers take virtual, 360 degree tours of properties.
If a customer likes the look of a property they can tap a budget calculator to get an estimate of how much they can expect to pay, including stamp duty, commissions and other fees. Then they can see if they qualify for a mortgage before following up with a bank staffer.
Royce Teo, head, consumer banking group and wealth management, Hong Kong, DBS: says: “We developed DBS Home360 as an innovative, interactive and intuitive way to put the power of realtors and banks at your fingertips.
“More importantly, prospective homebuyers can gain a clear understanding of the home-buying process, from searching for properties to sending in the mortgage application. With this first-in-market app, buying a home is simple, engaging and fun.
