DBS wanted to create a home mortgage application for homebuyers to make sense of the property market. As the first home mortgage app in Singapore, DBS spearheaded the use of mobile technology in improving consumer’s banking experiences.

Our research showed that customers were consistently looking for two things: The first was a detailed guide in areas related to mortgage loans and property regulations, while the second was timely reminders of property prices in Singapore. There was a further breakdown in terms of usage behaviour; First time buyers had slightly different priorities as compared to property investors.

Our solution

We designed and developed Homeconnect with that in mind, providing accurate and up-to-date information on Singapore’s property market, including policies, regulations and developments. To make the massive amounts of information easier to digest, we also designed an interactive loan calculator to help them estimate affordability of loan repayments and to help them better plan their finances. Homeconnect’s Augmented Reality capabilities was also well received, improving customer experience when exploring nearby property prices.
