Competitors of the Cash for Loans and Financing


The number of Caixa’s competitors for home loans and financing has grown. Bank and financial inquiries and inquiries to finance the purchase of the home in spite of the “crisis in Brazil” has also increased, the reason may be the signs of a loosening economy. In years ago Caixa Econômica Federal reigned sovereign in the real estate financing market, nowadays times are different and future borrowers no longer have Caixa as a right institution to request their financing.

In recent months, Caixa has been adopting successive policies on credit and criteria for the release of funds.
