What is mortgage refinance?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "mortgage refinance."

In a mortgage refinance, you end a relationship with a home loan because something more attractive has come along. Your dump your old loan by paying it off with a new loan more to your liking, maybe because it offers a lower interest rate, lower monthly payment, or the opportunity to take some cash out of your equity -- to redo your 1970s harvest gold kitchen.

You don't have to stay married to your mortgage but can divorce it for something better by doing a mortgage refinance.
