Ok, it’s time to look at refinancing the old homestead’s mortgage. I’ve been putting it off because of holidays and the fact that rates can still go lower even though the Fed recently cut rates to zero. Now, it’s time to take a serious look at refinancing and how it might work out for my family. I’ll be posting a series of articles here on Finance Gourmet to help guide you through the process. By writing these articles in “real time” with my refinance adventure, you can see the whole process from A to Z and use it as a guide for your own refinancing now, and in the future.
To make sure you don’t miss out, I recommend grabbing the RSS feed. If you aren’t familiar with RSS or “feeds”, they are basically a way to get the article pulled from here by a RSS reader which is just software that goes and gets articles from the websites you ask it to watch. That way, you don’t have to remember to open your bookmarks to get back here. It is kind of like the old idea of subscribing to emails that updated you on website content, but this way, all of your articles are kept separate and your inbox does get filled up with article postings from a bunch of web sites.
If you have never used RSS feeds before and you have a Google account, you can just use Google’s feed reader. That way, you don’t have to install any software, and if you decide to junk the whole thing, you can just delete your feed reader subscriptions and you’re done.
