OK. I have been contacting people at the credit union I have had an account at, and at the bank I have an account at. No response from the mortgage people. Also contacted someone at a bank that had a booth at the home improvement show. That's just in the past 2 years. Didn't get anywhere with that either. Looked on several web sites and I didn't see any programs I'd qualify for. It seemed that making a huge effort and contacting a lot of companies was only going to tire my fingers out and maybe impact my credit rating.

And just so you know, I am NOT engaged yet. I was hoping to get the re-fi over with, preferably before the rates go up a lot. Didn't see why I should get the question of marriage get all tangled up in the attempt to get a decent interest rate and better conditions. If we do end up getting married, I'm sure there will be conversations first about money and credit and what to do with the real estate.
