Attention MSCCG Alum: Lower Your Mortgage Payments !!!
As mortgage rates continue to drop to record lows, many alum may have refinanced or took out a mortgage from NationsBank in 1998 during the sale of the CCG business. Great news ! You may be eligible for a Mortgage Rate Modification (i.e. a lower mortgage rate) for a modest 1% charge on the amortized value, depending on the terms of your loan. The catch is, this must be done at a branch, since it is kind of difficult to find a branch in the metropolitan area, you may want to get in touch with Kathy Boone at the Banner Elk, NC branch at 828-898-5231. Note that a rate modification is different from a re-finance which includes closing costs and attorney fees. Please consult your personal financial advisor to determine your specific needs.
