KUALA LUMPUR:  CIMB Bank Bhd and CIMB Islamic Bank Bhd's “One-Minute Home Financing” – which is part of CIMB’s InstaApproval platform – has received strong support from the country's top property developers.

The facility enables a faster, secure, paperless and hassle-free home ownership journey via an instant approval process.

Senior managing director and regional head, Vipin Agrawal, said the digital platform, deemed the first in the country, could facilitate complete home financing approval within a single minute upon the full submission of information and documents.

Datuk Ho Hon Sang, CEO of MAH SING GROUP BHD:

“Mah Sing is proud to be one of the pioneer partners for CIMB’s 1-Minute Home Financing InstaApproval. We feel that CIMB’s initiative is timely as Mah Sing will be rolling out 6 new planned residential launches in the first half of 2018 priced below RM500,000. 

“These launches include M Centura in Sentul, M Vertica in Cheras, Southville City’s new Sensa Residence and Cerrado Residential Suites Tower C and D in Greater KL, Meridin East’s 2-storey link homes in Johor Bahru and M Vista@Southbay in Penang.
