How YOURgage® Loans Work
You’ll choose a loan term from 8 to 29 years. This will give you some control over what your monthly payments.
Because your interest rate is locked for the life of your loan, your principal and interest payments won’t change over time. You may see the amount of tax and insurance change.
You may have to pay for mortgage insurance if you have a down payment of less than 20% of your homes price.
What You’ll Need To Qualify For A YOURgage® Loan
- A minimum 3% down payment.
- A minimum FICO® Score of 620.
- A debt-to-income ratio (DTI) of no more than 50%. Estimate your DTI by adding your monthly debt payments (such as credit card and car payments) and dividing the total by your monthly income before taxes.
- Money to cover closing costs, which are about 2%-6% of the purchase price.

Quicken Mortgage® YOURgage® Loan Benefits
- You can customize the length of the loan, potentially saving on your monthly payments.
- You may be able to avoid mortgage insurance with a down payment of 20% or higher.
- Your interest rate is fixed for the life of the loan, so you don’t have to worry about your rate rising.
- You can buy your primary home with as little as 3% down and can typically refinance up to 97% of your home’s value.
Mortgage Insurance Requirements
You’ll have to pay primary mortgage insurance (PMI) if you have a down payment less than 20%.
- This typically costs between 0.5% and 1% of your loan amount per year, spread over 12 payments.
- Once you reach 20% equity in your home, you may be able to request to cancel PMI.
- PMI is often cancelled automatically once you reach 22% equity.
- You have the option to apply for lender-paid mortgage insurance (LPMI). With LPMI, the lender pays the full premium for the mortgage insurance policy up front. In exchange, you take a slightly higher interest rate.
