If you move and sell the home before you have recouped the costs, you won't end up receiving a financial benefit from refinancing. Use our refinance calculator to help you decide. Check out 123 Refinance calculator to find your refi rates in seconds.

I might have actually looked at this house in 2007 when I purchased in Edgewood. If you are hunting the foreclosure market in Summerhill it is pretty likely some of the homes have been vandalized and need work. Perfect for the FHA 203K renovation loans. http://www.203KLoan.net
