UOB GetBanker, app that matches property buyers with mortgage experts
United Overseas Bank Malaysia Bhd (UOB Malaysia) announced the launch of UOB GetBanker, a mobile app that quickly and securely matches potential property buyers with the bank’s team of mortgage experts, on 21st March 2019.
With the UOB GetBanker app, a property buyer or agent can search for a mortgage banker based on the location, price of the property and their decision to purchase either a residential or commercial property.
The buyer or agent is then matched with a mortgage banker on the day itself. There is an option to also rate the banker’s service and add the banker as a favourite banker for their future reference.
UOB Malaysia Managing Director and Country Head of Personal Financial Services Ronnie Lim, said that the app will help to simplify the property buying process.
“Property agents typically rely on their own contact list of bankers to help property buyers find a mortgage banker. However, these bankers may not always be readily available or familiar with the type of property the buyer wants to purchase.
“The UOB GetBanker app addresses these issues by referring the prospective buyer to a UOB banker within minutes of generating a search,” Lim explained.
To guide property buyers more efficiently, the UOB GetBanker app supplies agents and buyers with the latest interest rate information for residential and commercial loans.
Another great feature is a loan calculator to help buyers estimate the monthly loan repayments they are required to pay.
Lim said, “Through the UOB GetBanker app, a mortgage banker with the relevant expertise and training is assigned to advise homebuyers.
“The launch of the GetBanker app is also timely as we expect to see more first-time homebuyers enter the housing market in the next couple of years. With the app, we can help ensure that purchasing their first home is a pleasant, smooth and fuss-free experience.”
The app will also help small-and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to incorporate the property financing process into their existing business operations and to improve their access to bank financing for the acquirement of new properties.
UOB Malaysia Executive Director and Country Head of Business Banking Raymond Chui said, “Through the app, our team of commercial mortgage bankers will be able to extend financing to our SME customers in a timely manner and ensure that we are able to respond quickly to our customers’ business needs.”
Property agents and buyers will have access to more than 290 residential and commercial mortgage experts across UOB Malaysia’s network nationwide with the UOB GetBanker app.
