They keep throwing this stat around. But if there is a team that has the chance to be in the 12%, it is the Saints. They are only 1 game behind SF and Seattle, arguably the two best teams in the conference. The Saints just need to look at this as a 14 game season and play to the best of their abilit...

What exactly do their IT folks do? Don't they simulate the traffi...

We are planning to refinance our home. We are currently at 4.5% on a 30-yr fixed and want to switch to an ARM. This is a starter home and we don't expect to stay here for more than 6-7 years. In this situation would you rather go for a 5/1 or a 7/1 ARM? Obviously the rates are better for the 5/1, bu...

Yeah the 4% difference was $20K, so it was quite big. Our mortgage is with Central Mortgage. Our bank sold it to Central Mortgage a couple of months after we closed. The PMI is $167 per month....

Thanks. I assumed it would be much higher.
Also, when we closed in April this year, we got 4.5% for 30-year fixed. We put $100K (16%) down on the $600K home. My FICO score was 805 then, and is still around the same now.
Instead of just looking at removing PMI, should I try to refinance and get...

Our condo has gone up in value considerably since we bought it. New condos in our community are now selling for ~$40K more than what we bought ours for just 5 months later. With this increase in our equity, I'd like to get the PMI removed from the monthly payments.
