Testimonial

"I was looking at a 4.375% with Wells Fargo, my local bank, before stumbling upon FreeRateUpdate.com via a google search. They hooked me up with a longstanding savings and loan bank of which I closed on a 30 year fixed rate of 3.75% with. I'd recommend anybody looking at refinancing or buying a home give free rate a shot."
