About mortgage in Armenia

Since 2022 in the country boom construction. Under the current government program, when purchasing a home, the buyer has the opportunity to return income tax in the amount of 20%. As one of the consequences, in the first 5 months of 2023, the volume of construction work in Armenia increased by 16.7% compared to the previous year. Private companies accounted for more than 60% of the work performed.

Every major developer in Armenia has partner banks. At the stage of project preparation and the start of construction, an application-contract is concluded. Each credit institution has its own conditions and programs. A mortgage loan in Armenia can be obtained not only for a new building, but also for a secondary building.

There are also 4 state programs of preferential mortgages, thanks to which housing can be purchased not only at a low interest rate, but also with its partial repayment.

Programs (only for RA citizens)

The State Program for Support and Improvement of Housing Conditions in Young Families has been operating since 2008. The age of married couples does not exceed 60 years and where each of them is not more than 35 years old. But not all banks provide mortgage loans on such terms. The interest rate for this program starts from 7%.
For young families with children, the option of one-time mortgage assistance is available. Main criteria:
