01/2017:  $42,000
....
01/2018:  $143,602
02/2018:  $151,025
03/2018:  $158,208
04/2018:  $161,505
05/2018:  $171,200
06/2018:  $186,416
07/2018:  $190,600
08/2018:  $201,789

Hitting $250k by the end of the year is gonna be a stretch, but really psyched to get over $200k!

I may be artificially deflating my number by not increasing my estimated valuation for my home, but I don't want to give in to the temptation to overvalue. And I live in a very small market so Zillow etc. are not very reliable. Not sure what to do about that for tracking purposes. Any thoughts?

Do you know any realtors?  They could look at comparables and give you their opinion on what your house would sell for.  Or you could take a stab at DIYing that by looking at sales records in the surrounding area yourself?

Yeah, that's a good idea. I've only done that in the most casual way. I could be more systematic.

If you want to calculate net worth, you have to include any real-estate (Including the house you live in) and related mortgages. Some people on this thread are only tracking investment accounts instead of tracking net worth.

Worth by what measure?

Is my paid for condo really worth what my tax appraisal was, or would it be more realistic to start with the (slightly lower) amount _I_ think it would sell for and then deduct what I would have to pay to get it in saleable condition (pull carpets, put in new flooring, paint everything, install kitchen cabinets not from the 1970's, etc.) and any expenses this would incur? The difference could be $25,000 or more. I know my investments to the penny.

@tarheeldan Congrats on moving on up.  I fee like the Hendersons telling Harry we don't ever want to see you again because we know it is best for you. 

Before you go, is there any way to make a couple changes to the Big Board on the Google Doc?  Maybe not, but I would love to see a Year to Date $ and/or % change on the Big Board, and I would also love to see a months to victory column added to the Graduate Tab.  I figure the Net Worth column should always be near $250K,  but how long it takes to get there is the fun part. 

If it is tons of work no big deal.  If it is something anyone can do, even better, but I am not proficient in google docs or excel. 

What is your best guess timetable to 500K?

@Nick miller October?! how did you remove two months from the stretch goal?

Well, it may or may not happen, but it's the new goal after we hit $231K in July. I don't report my info until mid-month, so that still gives me mid Aug, mid Sept, and mid Oct to make $19K in progress.

I'll have another royalty check to report when I check in next week, as well as a small payment from a new publisher. We continue to put about $3000 in 401ks each month, so we have a shot. But if it ends up being Dec, I can live with that.

Thank you!

Done - we now have YTD $ and YTD %, and there's also a "months in race" column on the Graduates tab - all of these are automatically calculated :)

Hoping for March 2021 to graduate from the next thread - we'll see! Hope to see you there soon!

DAMN we cranked it up a total of $29,571.25 in just one month. Nice job, ladies and gents! (not making any assumptions)

Does anyone else want in on this sweet action?

NickMiller $239,233.26
@Lews Therin $233,000.00
@Virtus $226,000.00

Holy crap, we beat last month's increase! As a group, we're up $32,475.73 with biggest gainer going to moonpalace!

This is super impressive, especially the fairly flatish market we've been having!

I like this thread.  I'm super impressed with all the remarkable gains y'all are making!  I feel lucky to get a couple hundred in NW increase each month!

06/2018 - $127,908
07/2018 - $128,267
08/2018 - $130,454

Net Worth from Personal Capital.  I recently had my house appraised, so I've manually set it's value to $205,000.

I'm still getting to Mustachian on spending... 
Most of my gains are market right now, as I'm working down some CC debt (happily no interest! yet...)

When you're in the end-game, and at high savings rate, it'll go up in ridiculous bounds.

Investment gains are also quite fun. (2% gain for a 200k portfolio is 4k!)

8/15/18 - $188,050.23 - not as big a gain.  Booking travel for weddings (getting 5% cash back on airfare on one of my cards) and bachelor parties.  Also needed a new desk that the DW approves of (nothing even remotely acceptable was on Craigs list) and baby proofing has begun because the baby will begin crawling soon.  Tons of expenses in the last half of the year and no big windfalls. Blah the first half of the year is more fun.

As long as you can stomach the flipside ($4k loss for 2% loss)

Doing a little happy dance here. Just hit another milestone.

Took me 39 years to hit 50K
Then only 14 months after that to hit 100K
Today another 15 months later i'm at 150K.

I know that's pretty slow compared to a lot of people on here but since I started so late, I still have plenty more catching up to do. Won't be able to retire early like most people here but I should be able to knock a few years off early anyway

I can't remember how far along we were last time I posted...but we passed the $250K mark around March of 2018! Can't wait to hit $300 and then on to the next. We're adding ~$1600/month.

Very inspiring to read about other people's progress!

Thanks Nick Miller!  I dipped my toes into the champagne pool of that other thread with my first post.  At that net worth level, it seems that a lot of the participants are really racking up investments with decent gains recently or have big incomes (or both) - I think I'm going to be the turtle in that group!
