Intuit, Excite Open Refinance Center

Intuit, Inc. and Excite announced today the launch of the QuickMortgage Refinance Center, an online resource for users interested in refinancing their home loans.

The Refinance Center is accessible from both Intuit's Home and Mortgage department on Quicken.com and Excite's Business and Investing Channel by Quicken.com.

Visitors to the online resource will be able to access news and advice, mortgage rates, a directory listing other online refinancing resources, and an online community area comprising chat rooms and bulletin boards for trading information.

The Center also features QuickMortgage's interview process, in which users can compare available mortgage rates from potential lenders, and then start the application process online once a lender has been chosen.

"Instead of waiting online to get application packages from multiple lenders in my area, I used QuickenMortgage and shopped six lenders in under 15 minutes. I must have saved 4-8 hours of time. I am also saving a couple of hundred dollars per month through the refinancing," said Gail Plank, a Massachusetts-based consumer.
