Although the FreeCreditReport.Com commercials may be joking in nature, they illustrate an important point and they do it with a tune that is stuck in my head for hours each time I hear it… Is a Fixer-Upper Right for YOU? – You cant go a day without hearing an ad on the radio or seeing something on TV about mortgage rates being at their lowest in over a decade (which they are) and how now is the time to buy (which it very well might be).
