The Application Process
If you choose to begin an online loan application, you may access Rocket Mortgage through RocketHomes.com. The Rocket Mortgage application process is entirely online, but you can speak with a loan officer by phone, email, or live chat.
The online application process takes around 30 minutes. You can upload required documents such as bank statements and pay stubs directly or enable Rocket Mortgage to connect to your bank. Rocket Mortgage will also run a hard credit check as part of the application process.
Once you’re approved, you can choose to lock in your offered rate. You can also print preapproval letters with any amount up to your maximum approved loan so that prospective sellers don’t know your total budget.
Repayment terms are variable and will be lender-dependent.
