Guru Interest Rates

I am often astonished at the real estate “Guru” who charge outrageous (unpublished) interest rates for their products. As if their astronomical pricing isn’t bad enough, they offer time payment plans that are nothing short of usurious, making high credit card interest rates seem reasonable in comparison.

I just posted a new article on the Time Value of Money (TVM) principles for refinancing your home.
I just heard some ridiculous financial advice from a “personal finance guru” regarding refinancing your home mortgage.
