What Harry Abramhamsen can say in an interview:

      • Seek lower interest rates.  If you can get a lower rate, try and refinance your current loan. The challenge is how much is your house worth. Banks will become more and more skittish about real estate values. 

      • Make sure refinancing in this environment. If you have a good amount of equity and you want to make college tax-deductible, try and do a cash-out refinance. You may want to do a cash-out refinance and keep money in a saving account. Banks will probably stop doing any cash-out refinances, so do not delay the inquiry process. Rates have dropped, but banks will make you jump through financial hoops to qualify.
      • Be sure the potential savings of refinancing outweigh the cost of refinancing. The best thing to do is to look at cash flow differences between the current mortgage payment, excluding any escrow and taxes. If you can save at least $250 monthly in cash flow, then do the refinance. It is equally important to then save the $250 monthly into alternate savings and investments.
