7. Try to refinance Your mortgage
Now you may be ROTFL because interest rates have only been going in one direction for a while - UP and if you bought your house a few years ago, you may be already sitting on a great mortgage rate.
However, here's the things about mortgage rates - they change - so it's always worth KNOWING WHAT YOUR CURRENT RATE IS - and checking to see if the current rates are lower.
Because when interest rates are lower than the one you started your mortgage with, you may be able to save thousands of dollars on your mortgage by refinancing.
This is particularly true if you intend to stay in your house for years.
Do the math to see if refinancing would be advantageous for you.
