Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today is going to be a short post about “Time to Refinance?” Time to Refinance? In case you guys don’t know, interest rates have continued to decrease the last few years. This has affected both student loan refinancing and home mortgage refinancing.

However, let’s delve into the longer answer of: Yes, because However, before we go there, I think you should read my previous post about How To Value a Pension to gain an understanding of where I’m coming from. The take home point from that post is […]
