Re: January and February

I expect my refi to close sometime in Feb, so I guess it qualifies for the thread.

 

I'm currently 29 months into a 20 year fixed at 4.375%  Balance is about $152k ($4500 paid ahead on pricipal).

 

I'm applying and locked into a no cost 15 year fixed refi @ 2.875% (1/8 of a point for the "no cost")

 

Just got the loan app on 1/25 and returned it signed with all requested documentation to the mortgage broker 1/26.

 

He said closing should be in about 20days barring any delays getting an appraisal scheduled.

 

Depending on where the appraisal comes in, I might have to borrow a small amount ($10-15K) from my 401K to meet 80% LTV and avoid MI.

 

All the work I do to keep my credit pristine really pays off when it allows me to get good rates and rapid approval on new loans.

Re: January and February

Thanks.  It's fun taking the FICO out for a spin once in a while.  I just try not to do it too often. 

 

But when the opportunity comes up to save $20K on my mortgage, it's a no-brainer!
