SCB Senior Executive Vice President, Chief of Retail and Business Banking, Ms. Auraratana Jutimitta said that the economic outlook in the second quarter is becoming increasingly challenging due to inflation. As a result, people are more careful about their spending, particularly for big-ticket assets such as housing. However, this year the burdens of homebuyers have been relieved thanks to the temporary easement of regulatory loan-to-value (LTV) measures for home loans and other home-related loans. Consumers buying a first home worth up to 10 million baht can apply for a home loan amount at 100% of the collateral value, plus a multi-purpose home loan (top-up) by 10% throughout this year. Amid the current inflation, home loan product development demands value deals to best respond to the needs of real-demand consumers and to be in line with sustainable financial business practices.
SCB has therefore extended partnerships across home-related industries to strengthen the business system and meet consumer demands. The recent partnership between SCB and leading furniture and home decoration mall SB Design Square has created a Home Décor Campaign combining an SCB Multi-purpose Home Loan & Free Furniture Topup at SB Design Square for SCB home loan clients, to help them manage their liquidity with a top-up loan and cut home décor shopping expense with a value offer.
“SCB has noticed the on-going trend of working from home and more consumer interest in home decoration. Those buying their first home need money for purchasing quality home décor items, and now they can apply for a top-up loan to help them with that. Our partnership with SB Design Square aims to provide better client care and support through SCB home loans and multi-purpose loans. Clients can afford quality home décor items, while SCB can expand its multi-purpose loan client base. At present, the number of SCB home loan clients applying for a multi-purpose loan is still low, but there is the potential for quality growth driven by campaigns with our business partners, including the latest Home Décor Campaign combining an SCB Multi-purpose Home Loan & Free Furniture Topup at SB Design Square.”
SB Furniture Group Executive Vice President Phidet Chawaldit noted that the furniture market in Thailand is recovering this year. One positive factor is an obvious change in consumer behavior, with customers looking for furniture items to suit their lifestyles and at the same time boosting the home ambience. This is because they are spending more time at home, including working from home and family activities. SB Design Square has always been committed to product and service development and business partnerships to answer every customer need, while delivering an enjoyable shopping experience to home décor consumers and boosting the brand image of one-stop Home Design Solutions.
