Today the CFPB launched a tool to help us all compare mortgage rates available in our areas. If you are shopping for a mortgage you should definitely check it out!
I recently ran across a great tool from the NYT The 1% More Savings Calculator. Play with it. It really helps show how much small changes in saving today can make an enormous difference down the road. Let me know what you think. http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2010/03/24/your-money/one-pct-more-calculator.html
