Ensuring Stability in Housing for Senior Generations
Housing holds the key for the elderly to maintain their quality of life and feel safe in their everyday routines. SuMi TRUST Bank provides information about housing that matches the needs of senior generation clients and supports them in securing stable housing using the Group’s array of functions. Moreover, in our digest report for seniors (Considering Senior-Generation Housing—V2.0), we go into more detail about the following three options.
Our Lineup of Products and Services That Provide Housing Assistance to Seniors
Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Panasonic Finance offers renovation loans that provide the funds necessary to make such renovations as barrier-free improvements as a way to support elderly clients to live comfortably in their old age.
Housing Assistance Loans for Seniors
SuMi TRUST Bank offers clients aged 60 years or older a housing assistance loan that can be used to purchase a home. This product helps clients reconsider their living arrangements in order to prolong their healthy life expectancy. For example, by renovating their current dwelling to make it barrier free, or moving to a more user-friendly house that is also closer to their children.
SuMi TRUST Bank offers reverse mortgage loans whereby the client puts up their home as collateral to borrow funds for retirement. The funds can be used for various purposes, such as home renovations or for the deposit when moving into a nursing home.
Services Relating to Real Estate
Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Realty provides brokerage services that ensure secure, reliable property purchases and sales to clients looking to relocate, leveraging the consulting capabilities and broad-based information network of our Group. We assist with sales and effective use of assets such as residential property, inherited property, idle property, and real estate owned for business or investment purposes.
Bridge Loans for Sales of Real Estate
Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Loan & Finance offers bridge loans for real estate sales to clients who are considering a move to a conveniently located condominium or a residence for seniors so they do not have to rush to sell their precious property, providing them with support as they seek a new home that suits their lifestyle in their golden years.
