Quicken Loans took a big step forward in the mortgage industry 17 years ago when we took the approval process online and over the phone. We shut down our brick-and-mortar branches and took things into the digital age, allowing you to get a mortgage in your pajamas.
Fast-forward to 2015, and we’re doubling down on our promise to allow you to get a mortgage anytime, anywhere.
Today, you can purchase or refinance your home through Rocket MortgageSM by Quicken Loans – our fast, powerful and completely online way to get a mortgage. This self-service solution allows you to navigate the mortgage process quickly and on your terms.
So what can you do with Rocket Mortgage? Let’s take a look.
Most real estate agents won’t show you houses until they’ve seen your approval letter. They want to know that you won’t have issues getting financed, as well as how much you can afford.
In the standard mortgage process, getting approved means giving your mortgage company information about your income and assets. With Rocket Mortgage, supplying this information is effortless. Using our trusted partners, you can import accurate and up to date income and asset information with just a few clicks. There’s no chasing down bank statements, pay stubs or W-2s – it’s all right there.
Once you’ve given us your information and had your credit pulled, Rocket Mortgage shows you the mortgage solution you qualify for. You can play around with your numbers to find a mortgage that works for you. When you’ve found the mortgage you want, you can instantly see if you’re approved.
Just how fast is this? Say you’re in your real estate agent’s office. You can get on your phone, fill out a quick form, see your options and have a digital approval letter in hand in minutes. You’ll know exactly how much you can afford to spend on a house. And all this can be done in less time than it would take you to put on pants and drive to the bank.
Want to see if a refinance is feasible? Rocket Mortgage can tell you, with certainty, whether a refinance makes sense for you.
First, Rocket Mortgage asks about your refinance goals. Would you like to lower your monthly payment, shorten your term, or take cash out of your home?
After that, you’ll answer some questions about your current mortgage. Then it’s time to import your income and asset information from our trusted partners.
When it’s all said and done, you’re presented with your mortgage solution – and then you can customize it to fit your needs. You can adjust your interest rate, costs and term to find your lowest monthly payment or save the most on interest. And when you’re happy with your brand-new mortgage, you can see if you’re approved, and even lock your rate.
