  •  Actually what I was listening to was Marketplace (5+ / 0-)

    The yield on 10 years is down 21 basis points.  If this keeps up it is going to be mortgage refinancing time again.

      is pretty much top-skimming, but every once in a while they hit a good one. I used to get really annoyed, and then I started listening more closely, and there's a certain amount of reality and skepticism the creeps in on their commentary sometimes.

      Although I expect they're pretty well boxed in and can't exactly go all DFH on the air.

      I still think the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were and are unnecessary, the whole "war on terror" is just a reaction to self-induced fear. I still think there is a war on women. -- from LaFeminista

    •  Just remember when you refinance (0+ / 0-)

      Get
      (a) a NONTRANSFERRABLE mortgage, which the bank cannot resell,
      from
      (b) a LOCAL bank
      and
      (c) demand full discharge of debt and mortgage from EVERY previous bank ever involved in your previous mortgage....

      ...mortgage fraud is still a huge huge issue in this country.
