Get Approved for a Mortgage
Don’t settle for a preapproval – get approved by Quicken Loans.
Know Your Price Range
An approval letter gives you an estimate of your loan amount, monthly payment and interest rate.
Make a Confident Offer
Getting approved shows sellers and real estate agents a lender is willing to give you a mortgage.
Get to Closing Faster
The more information you verify early in the process, the smoother and easier your path to closing will be.
Get Approved with Our Power Buying Process™
When you find the home you want, you need to be ready to make an offer quickly. The stronger your approval, the better your chances against other buyers. Our Power Buying Process has three levels of approval to help you make the strongest offer.
- Prequalified Approval: You answer a few simple questions, and we’ll check your credit. Based on that information, we give you a Prequalified Approval Letter you can show to your real estate agent and sellers.
- Verified Approval1: Be even more confident you’ll close on a new home. After checking your credit history, a Home Loan Expert will verify your income and assets. Because we verify more of your information, a Verified Approval letter gives you the strength of a cash buyer.
- RateShield™ Approval2 : Focus on finding your new home instead worrying about rising interest rates. Get RateShield Approval after speaking with a Home Loan Expert and lock your interest rate for up to 90 days. If rates go up, your rate stays the same. If rates go down, your rate may drop. Either way, you win!1

2 RateShield Approval locks your initial interest rate for up to 90 days on 30-year conventional, FHA and VA fixed-rate purchase loan products. Your exact interest rate will depend on the date you lock your rate. Once you submit your signed purchase agreement, we’ll compare your rate to our published rates for that date and re-lock your interest rate at the lower of the two rates for an additional 40 to 60 days.
