Sberbank has begun preliminary acceptance of applications for preferential mortgages for employees of domestic IT companies, which was confirmed by Sberbank Vice President Nikolai Vasev.
As a social bank, Sberbank participates in all government-supported mortgage programs. Today it is important to support the population, including individual specialists, and create affordable conditions for them to purchase housing in Russia. The rate under the new program is one of the lowest on the market. We hope that employees of IT companies will take advantage of the opportunity to improve their living conditions at minimal interest rates. We expect demand for the program.
The maximum loan amount is 18 million rubles for the purchase of housing in cities with more than 1 million people. In smaller settlements, the maximum amount will be 9 million rubles. The rate is 5%.
On March 2, the Russian authorities announced measures to support IT companies, which were exempted from paying income tax and inspections for three years. In addition to preferential mortgages, you can also get a deferment from military service.
