Those of us in the mortgage business know just how many incredible opportunities are being presented in this otherwise dismal economic climate. From opportunities to buy at insanely low prices, to interest rates not seen in decades, we know (because we're immersed in the business day in and out) that it is unequivocally one of the best times in history to be a buyer. We also know that it's a remarkable time to be a homeowner, as you can save thousands by refinancing into safe, old fashioned 30 year fixed loans.

But for all of our efforts to spread this word, no one has been more helpful than President Obama in getting the word out. Citing the fact that millions of people can save thousands by refinancing, and the fact that interest rates are dipping into ranges we haven't seen since the 1970's; President Obama has become our nation's greatest de facto pitchman for mortgage refinancing! And for that, we should all thank him, for helping us to realize just how much money we can all be saving by refinancing our homes today.
