Just passed $400k in net worth
« on: May 10, 2018, 09:50:36 AM »
At the present moment, I just hit $400,291 in net worth. Don't really have a person I feel I can share this with, so appreciate some of you will read this. On Jan 1 this year I got really serious about following the advice I get here, and just since then my net worth has gone up $29k. I am kind of speechless. I know its all pixie money until I sell investments and so on, but still, it gives me something to work for. This does includes an estimate on equity in my home based on Zillow, which we all know is hit and miss, but I've had the home for 5 years and have paid into it.

I track just about everything now. Its eye opening what you learn about yourself breaking down numbers.

This stuff really does work. Thank you all.

Of course, watch Trump tweet something and then I am back in the Top Is In thread getting angry again lol.

Congrats! I'm painfully close, probably 2-3 months away. Last year spoiled me and this year has been slower going due market performance.

I am also painfully close! Been hovering just under $400k for a few months despite shoveling cash into my investment accounts. Should get there next month I hope!

Congrats!! I'm a stones throw away. If the market stays flat, I should hit it in the next 4-6 weeks!

Crossed that mark this year myself, it's a good feeling! Hoping to hit $500k by the end of the year! Great job everyone!

Made it over $400K yesterday due to Zillow house value going up a couple of thousand dollars. Does that count? It feels like cheating...

FWIW, We dont count our home equity. Wed have to sell the house to cash in. Others do, so dealers choice.

Congrats to breaking the $400K!
I set that number years ago as a goal and hopefully next year I can make that jump too :)

Zillow says our apartment is worth $687,000+... its more than a half million higher than its really worth.
