eClick Lending overview
eClick Lending is an online-only mortgage lender headquartered in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, lending $1 billion to $2 billion per year. It is a division of Celebrity Home Loans LLC (formerly Midwest Equity Mortgage). The lender offers conventional and government loans and refinancing, and getting preapproved typically takes a business day or two, while closings for a purchase take 21 days, on average. If you’re a borrower who has already worked with the lender, there might be a discount on costs, depending on your financial situation and if you’re in good standing.

eClick Lending does not provide lender fee information on its website.
eClick Lending advertises daily mortgage rates on its website. If you’re interested in potentially taking out a mortgage or refinancing through the lender, you can see current rates for a 15-year, 20-year, or 30-year fixed-rate mortgage or refinance.
The lender has 3.7 stars out of five on Trustpilot.
eClick Lending offers the option to start the preapproval and application for a mortgage online, but you’ll need to finish the process by talking to a representative or loan officer. You can reach out with questions by email or sending a comment. While there aren’t a lot of resources available on the lender’s website, there is a handy mortgage calculator that can help you figure out how much home you might be able to afford.
Minimum borrower requirements
eClick Lending follows Fannie Mae’s underwriting guidelines, which means borrowers need a minimum credit score of 620 and can put down as little as 3 percent for a conventional loan. Borrowers also can have a maximum debt-to-income ratio, or DTI, of 50 percent with a Fannie Mae HomeReady Mortgage. That means the sum of your monthly debts (including the new mortgage payment) cannot exceed 50 percent of your gross monthly income.
Refinancing with eClick Lending
eClick Lending offers refinancing, including cash-out refinancing. Current refinance rates are available on the lender’s website. To get preapproved, start by going through the online application. Afterward, a loan officer will reach out to you to answer questions, review your options and offer you a quote for a 15-year, 20-year or 30-year fixed refinance. Adjustable-rate mortgages are also available.
