Real Estate Financing

Construction and real estate loans are characterised by a large number of loan variants and add-on products. Only an end-to-end digital solution provides the necessary transparency in order to be able to compare and manage products and variants quickly and transparently across all sales channels. The Real Estate Financing module group of afb Credit Management Solution (afb-CMS) supports all current credit variants as well as add-on products and offers comprehensive functionalities for the management of real estate financing; from the preparation of tenders and applications, making and processing of credit decisions through to contract activation and management. Different system users are provided with tailor-made processes for the calculation, application, decision-making and processing of real estate financing. With the additional functionalities for contract management and accounting, it is possible to create a full digital representation of the entire process chain, from the contract’s formulation to its agreed termination.
