Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

So, slightly different financial topic: I am in the process of opening up a small home equity line on my house. I'm doing the minimum amount you can do, $25k, just to have it as a "just in case". So, I was on the phone with the loan officer just now and she was walking me through the detai...

It's down under 50 points, which, at this point, I consider to be just about breakeven. Nice job staring the market down, dad.
