 Comparing a Refinance by Gary Foreman Dear Gary, My husband and I want to refinance our mortgage and add a credit card debt. We owe \$44,000 on our mortgage at a rate of 7 1/8% and we have 11 years left. We want to add a credit card debt of \$17,000 at a rate of 9.99%. The best mortgage rate that I have been able to find is a 15 year fixed at 6.25% with a fee of \$1161 and no points. Would we be wise to refinance? Thanks.
