We were part of the making homes affordable group, and are now in the stage where our interest rate will raise one percentage a month.

We are at 2% currently, and know that is a good rate. When should we look to refinance for a better interest rate?

At 1 percentage a month you will be a 4% in just a couple of months which is where current rates sit for borrowers who qualify. A refinance transaction takes between 30-45 days to close after which you will not have a payment due for roughly 30-45 days. A refinance transaction today will put you right where you will be in a couple of months but at a fixed rate going forward.

Are you certain is monthly jump and not an annual one? Are you upside down in the mortgage to value?
