Launched in 2016 nav>>, the financial functionality contained within the FNB App, has gradually gained additional functionality.

Today FNB added nav>> Home to the service.

The new feature allows users to list and sell their home securely to buyers who qualify for a home loan.

With over 8 million properties registered in the deeds office, we see a significant opportunity to become a game-changer in the property industry,” chief executive of FNB Retail, Raj Makanjee, said.

Sellers will benefit from cost savings when using this solution said FNB.

Through this solution, our sellers and buyers can engage, arrange to view a listed property and negotiate the price, via Secure Chat on the FNB Banking App. Sellers and buyers and sellers also can disclose personal contact information only when they are comfortable to do so,” chief imagineer (FNB’s title not ours) at nav>>, JolandĂ© Duvenage, said in a statement.
