Clark Howard Urges His Viewers to Visit HSH.com



On his Headline News (HLN) T.V. program last weekend, personal finance expert Clark Howard fielded a call from a viewer who was refinancing his home after a recent divorce:

Caller: I recently just finalized my divorce, and I’ve got to pay my wife half the equity in our home because I’m buying the home off of her because I have to refinance.

I’m wondering if now is the best time to do it because [I have waited] a year to do it.

Clark urged his viewer to lock in on a rate as quickly as possible :

Clark: As soon as it becomes clear that the economy is getting steadily stronger, there are going to be — there’s going to be a double whammy because the subsidies of the mortgage market will disappear and long-term interest rates will go up by quite a chunk because the fears about inflation.

Even though the viewer told Clark that the mortgage broker who would be quoting the interest rate was a friend, Clark still advised the viewer to shop around in order to find the best rate. Clark told his viewer to visit HSH.com (emphasis added):

Clark: I’d like you, before your appointment on Monday, to go to hsh.com.

“H,” harry, “s,” sam, “h,” harry, hsh.

And get a survey of where interest rates are so you know if your kind of buddy is really giving you a real deal.

HSH.com offers a wide variety of consumer products, from the custom mortgage rate surveys Clark mentioned, to our Homebuyer’s Mortgage Kit.

    Don’t businesses need cash flow to operate? wouldn’t it be better to reduce prices temporarily to increase sales rather than let products set on the shelves gathering dust and losing money? al;so, why not keep the so-called illegal aliens in this country working? we could collect federal income and social security taxes from them. that way the born here Americans wouldn’t have to do the jobs that the illegals supposedly do. then the born here’s could continue to do nothing but sit around getting fat and complaining about everything. how many born here’s would go out and harvest fruits and vegetables if they weren’t here? it’s a dirty, nasty job and pays little. been there , done that!!!!!
