I'm new to this thread but we passed a NW 500k around October of 2016, and we're are 975k right now. A 475k increase in two and half years feels absolutely insane.

I expect to be bouncing around 1MM for awhile with some planned larger expenses, possible market corrections, etc.

6 months later and we're at... 977k.

Hellooooo!!!

I am beyond excited to be finally joining this group. While hitting $500k is a great accomplishment regardless, these silly groups do add a little incentive. Primarily for the reason that these type of goals canít often be openly shared. I felt comfortable telling my parents and two close friends. Aside from that, just my wife and I to celebrate for now.

We zoomed through the $250k-$500k group over about 18 months. I work as a contractor and will be likely having a good sized sabbatical before we hit $1MM (at least I hope so!)

Funny how the fortunes change month to month.  Last month, I was up $60,000 over the year before.  This month, I'm up $107,000 over the year before.  Combination of an increase this year Sept-Oct AND a huge decrease last year from Sept-Oct.  Even so, it's up and that's wonderful.

Welcome to our new members.  It's a great thread to be in.  One, because these are nice people here.  And two, members of this thread are rich!

We are, surprisingly, quite up from Sept despite paying for the first half of our bathroom renovation in Oct ($5400). Expecting the other ~$7000 to hit in November. Maybe we can still hit $1 Mio total NW by end of this year?

Nov 1, 2019: $827.9k - a very loose calculation based on our current savings and we'll hit $1m by 1/1/21. Any help from the market could get us there even faster, but I'm sure it'll be a wavy pattern regardless. Either way, excited to be on the ride :)

ToughMother-
I'm selecting a mortgage for my home right now: can you give some insight about why you selected a 15-year mortgage term?
Hi @talltexan
At the time we were refinancing, I had three goals:
1. I was downsizing my job to about half my salary and wanted to refinance while my income was good.
2. When I bought my house, I was very ill and on disability.  I have since recovered.  I was in a ďsoft secondĒ with a subsidy and the whole thing was at 5.375%.  That mortgage also had some rental restrictions because of its mission. Anyway, I wanted out of that and to pay back the subsidy so the next person in need could use the pool
3. 15 year rates were about 3.25% and the feds were chatting about their first rate raises.
4. I wanted to keep my monthly amount at $X and the 15year plus putting in $Y to make the mortgage amount Z made the most fiscal sense.

About 1 year after that, I got yet another new job back to my old salary. And then a few months later, we found our forever house. So all of that refinancing was for nothing but would have been perfect with what looked to be my future status quo.

Happy to clarify anything else in a PM.
~ToughMother

appreciate it! The shorter loan term used to come with a large benefit in interest rate, these days it seems like it's very small.

..and I am back.

The last time I updated was June, so I "guessed" for July/Aug/Sept. Came out of my home buying whirlwind around $50,000 richer between income/a bit of equity even while paying some hefty realtor fees.

I took some loans out for a solar project, and my mortgage is *much* larger now. The goal over the next year is to pay off the solar loan and MAYBE pay down the mortgage a little. Sitting at around $580k in equities right now, so I could use a year to free up a little cash flow. (my mortgage company allows for re-casting, basically resetting the loan lowering payments)

This is all very TBD.

In other news, I crossed $750k. From my table it takes me around 2 years for each quarter of a million. Following this, in 2021 I should be graduating. My "LIVING" expenses are around 40-48k but my mortgage will need to be killed for me to live on that stache. Numerically, I put myself around "half" which means I am pretty far beyond half way due to growth. Maybe 4-6 years away realistically, putting me in my mid 30s.

Thanks for reading!

26 months for 100-250k. Last post in 100-250k here: http://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/throw-down-the-gauntlet/race-from-100-to-250k/msg1440605/#msg1440605

28 months for 250k-500k. Last post in 250k-500k here: https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/throw-down-the-gauntlet/race-from-250-to-500k!/msg2457040/#msg2457040

Recent NW:

May-19   $482,166.97
Jun-19   $506,489.11
Jul-19   $516,572.20
Aug-19      $520,552.46
Sep-19   $524,681.62

I haven't been updating real estate values to market value in the last few years and there is now a ~30k discrepancy due to appreciation. rather than take it all in one month, I will be adding $3k/month to real estate asset values until those values match market values.

Optimistic / unlikely goal of 36 months to $1M (May 2022).  This assumes net worth growth continues on current exponential trend.
Optimistic projection of 50 months to $1M (July 2023).  This assumes steady 7% investment return and 3% wage growth with steady expenses.
Realistic projection of 60 months to $1M (May 2024).  This assumes steady 4% investment return and 3% wage growth with 1% expense growth.

I think I'll have to settle in for the long haul on this thread.

Oct-19   $549,479.38

Yay for the stock market!

I was introduced to MMM in January 2017, and started tracking numbers the following month.  It's been a great ride, and watching investments top half a million on Friday was pretty surreal.

02/01/2019 - $388,855

11/30/2017 - $660k

11/30/2018 - $802k

10/30/2019 - $968k

Wow just realized I'm going to be very close to my original projection when I broke 500k

We bumped around at ~700-800k for awhile and it felt like it would take foreeeeeeever to get to 1 million.

End of October numbers totalled to 907$! Woot! Now I feel like we are almost there. Of course that probably means things will stall and it will be a year. Also, that has made H more willing to quit his job which would be a hit, so we'll see. I'm excited though!

I found MMM in late 2016, and that's when I got serious about tracking our finances.

We are so close Iím going to start tracking it monthly. Letís hope the markets keep cooperating.

Oct 2019: 982k
Nov 2019: 1001k

AND WEíRE DONE!!!!!! This is also our FI number. Everything after this is just padding. Itís definitely felt easier going from 500k to 1M, compared to the first 500K. Iím heading over to introduce myself to the 1M - 2M thread, but if there is a market correction I may be back here with you all.

Adding congrats to @Freedomin5, @Zamboni and @Arbitrage!! The world is your oyster.

And welcome @Dave1442397!



2011: $167,933

2017: $580,045
2018: $603,787
June 2019: $737,000


posting out of order, because I'm excited to say: passed 800k!

I doubt I'll stay above the 800k mark, but I'm hyped because it seemed like an awful long wait to push past the 700s.

Which is bizarre in retrospect, because I didn't pass 700k until April of this year.

I feel like we should define a new measure of time - like biological time, and cyclical time - just for the perception of NW growth . . .

             cash+rental equity       add primary residence equity
1/2016      $507K                      $627K
1/2017      $625K                      $797K

9/2017      $784K                      $904K

12/2017    $762K                      $903K  - remodeling primary residence! When project is done, big increase in equity!

3/2018     $725K                       $866K - still remodeling. Framing and all exterior done, all bills paid! (to contractors)

6/2018     $763K                       $910K    Hmmm. Zillow values for rental properties went way up. Making progress on the remodel.  Plumbing, insulation, electrical done. Just drywall, flooring remains!

9/2018    $830K                       $945K   We're painting this weekend! Just flooring and trim left on the remodel!  Cash went up because we paid off a bunch of credit card debt with HELOC. (0%promo rate was ending)

12/2018   $821K                      $964K   Slow and steady progress on the remodel. Thinking about selling a rental in 1stQ or 2ndQ 2019.

3/2019    $833K                      $977K     Just trim is left on the remodel. Rental house is on the market.

6/2019    $820K                     $953K      Had to buy a roof for the rental house. It now is under contract, though. Hope to close before the next quarterly update. Substituted real equity in the total now that we know the sale price for that one. (Zillow values still used for other properties)

9/2019    $832K                     $977K      Closed on the rental house! So nice to be done. Paying off 0%CC bills related to our remodel. Flooring and trim are done. Just railings to go. Hiring out for that, they're tricky.... Final inspection hopefully before the next update.


12/2019   $818K           $965K      Passed inspection. Paying off 0% CC bills. Installing solar panels on a rental. Upward trajectory should resume at the next update. But if we use the Nextdoor valuation for the primary residence, then we're at $1,031K for the second number right now. Pretend numbers. Not selling.

1MM dates      5/2022            4/2020
