Here’s a video by the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development advocating the virtues of refinancing your home under the currently available record low rates.
Interested citizens are encouraged to “Hangout” with Secretary Donovan. This from the Whitehouse website:
“On Thursday, July 12th at 3:15 p.m. EDT Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Shaun Donovan will participate in a White House Google+ Hangout mortgage refinancing moderated by the real estate information site, Zillow, Inc.
Secretary Donovan will join a conversation with participating homeowners about refinancing options, such as the Home Affordable Refinancing Program (HARP) and President Obama’s plan to streamline refinancing for responsible homeowners.
