Last week I attended a conference at George Mason University where a number of economists discussed many real estate related topics. One panelist, Dr. Frank Nothaft who is the Chief Economist of Freddie Mac, commented how mortgage rates are at almost 50 year lows and are probably going to remain low for the next 6-12 months.
So if that encouraged you to look into refinancing your home, please remember that Virginia residents who refinance with the same lender (read more) qualify for a recordation tax exemption. Compare rates but understand that this may save you some serious cash over those other lenders competing for your business.
I decided to regurgitate this post since rates have been up and down all year long, and some of you may be thinking about refinancing. There are plenty of mortgage people out there, but remember that I know some too that I am happy to refer!
