At the same time, a record month in terms of issuance this year remains March, the bank said.

Since the beginning of the year, the volume of VTB mortgage loans has reached 311.4 billion rubles.

According to the results of April-May, VTB customers have already completed over 8.6 thousand mortgage transactions worth 25 billion rubles. In the total volume of bank issuance, it occupies 29%. Every second mortgage with state support in Russia is issued by VTB.

“The mortgage market is recovering from the pandemic faster than other segments of consumer lending. VTB did not reduce sales compared to last year even in April, and in May we resumed intensive business growth,” comments Evgeny Dyachkin, deputy head of the VTB retail business department.

According to him, the self-isolation regime that persisted in many regions in April-May accelerated the launch of digital mortgage products on the market: in the spring, VTB conducted completely remote mortgage transactions – the new service was used by residents of Moscow, St. Petersburg, Tyumen, Novorossiysk.

“This project will continue to expand on our network, as the ability to buy an apartment without leaving home should be retained by citizens even after lifting restrictive measures,” Dyachkin emphasized.

The mortgage program at a rate of 6.5% for the purchase of standard housing in new buildings was launched in the spring on behalf of Russian President Vladimir Putin, it will be valid until November 1. The 6.5% rate is maintained for the entire loan term. The program applies to housing loans of up to 8 million rubles in Moscow and St. Petersburg and up to 3 million in other regions of the country.
