How to check ‘refinance your mortgage’ off your list this weekend

Instead of spending another weekend quarantining in front of Netflix or reuniting on Zoom with classmates or former co-workers you barely remember, why not do something really valuable?

Mortgage rates in 2020 have never been lower: The average for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage dropped below 3% for the first time, and some lenders are offering loans at 2.50% and even lower.
