Every month I post my updated net worth for those that are interested in following my progress. I have been tracking my net worth online since January 2006. I enjoy compiling the numbers each month, and doing so keeps me motivated, focused, and accountable.
This month’s numbers…
Well, it was an incredible year for my net worth (up $396,155), so it feels wrong to admit that I am a little disappointed that I didn’t make it to $1.5 million, but I am.
I’m clearly dependent on the market, so I don’t take it personally. All I can do is continue to add my money and patiently accept what the market gives me.
The housing market has really been going crazy and I have been under appreciating the gains on my home and rental properties. I’ve added a bit this month, but the even bigger increases will be included next month. I try to be conservative, but due to the rapid housing market growth, the numbers are currently just not accurate.
We accomplished some important things this year, and as always I have high hopes for what can be accomplished next year. Bring it on!
