We bought a house a year ago and Zillow finally has a Zestimate for its current value, so I'm switching from historical cost to our Zillow estimate for the home value. Without that $38k benefit, which really happened over the whole course of the last year, we would have been at $778k and up $73k month-over-month. I'm also happy to say that in just $200 more of principal paydown, we'll be under $300k left on the mortgage. I couldn't spare the extra $200 more of prepayment this month without fearing I'd overdraft mid-month somehow, so that milestone will have to wait for New Year's Eve.

Stocks up! based on this months number I will hit my $750k goal a few months early but let's see how that plays out.

@Finwiz i think since we both graduated the 250-500 race the same month we should race to $1,000,000. you have an ambitious goal of 2 years. It might be hard to keep up!

at 8% returns we are looking more like January 2025

Lets do it! Its definitely an ambitious, highly aggressive goal. More realistically we're looking at sometime between December 2023 to July 2024 given that I doubt we can keep up the sort of pace we've had so far this year (we're on pace to increase NW by ~$234,000 this year which is insane).

To hit it in 2 years, we'd need to save about $175,000/year at 8% returns. To make it in2.5 years we'd need to save about $130,000/year at 8% returns. We'll see - for now just keep chugging along and hope the career track continues in the right direction.

Congrats @Finwiz Looks like you were right on schedule! Keep it up!

Yeah, the big upswings are pretty fun, huh?

And I'm now finding my erratic record keeping methods and the resulting choppy data annoying. I think its time to systematize my reporting and capture data more regularly. I think I officially have enough money now to pay attention and make some plans rather than just focus on accumulating.

$639k, up another 100k+ this year. This is roughly $235k in gains in a year. Another absolutely wild year.

$686k. I barely moved the needle this year (+$47k). SP500 has retreated 15% over the past year which has resulted in staggering losses and only slightly offset by massive biweekly cash infusions. This has likely  added a year to my graduation date.


$861k SP500 is almost back to where it was 2 years ago. Maybe I can graduate next year if the stock market keeps chugging along

Progress likely to be quite a bit slower now - aiming for 650,000 by end-2023.

end-2023: £678,624 (Target achieved; thank you, markets)

New goal: I'm aiming for £700k-720k by end-2024.

I was putting together my end of year numbers and I realized that some time next year provided no more than a -2% market I should cross into 1 million net worth and 800k invested.  I didn’t think I was close to the 1MM.

Investments Only:
2020/07 - $400k
2021/01 - $500k
2021/04 - $550k
2021/07 - $600k
2023/06 - $700k
2023/07 - $750k

Update:
2023/12: $800k

We're likely over the 1MM on any good market day, which is just crazy to us even though it doesn't change anything (a bit anticlimactic). Our2024 planning is in the works: we'll be holding steady on contributions and hoping to see 900k and 1M within a couple of years.

Hello all!

After not being super active on the forums for a couple years, I'm jumping back in. Well, at my age it's more like "easing in" rather than jumping, but you get my meaning! Our goal is $1.28M before downshifting a bit.

Dec 2023: $738K

Year End
2016: $125k
2017: $182k  (+$57k)
2018: $233k  (+$51k)
2019: $281k  (+$48k)
2020: $327k  (+$46k)
2021: $453k  (+$126k)
2022: $452k  (-$1k)
2023: $565k  (+113k)

A noteworthy milestone, I've finally hit the point where my investments roi are adding more than *my* contributions. I remember calculating this when I first joined MMM, this typically happens in year 6-8 of accumulation, depending on your assumptions/performance. Took me a bit longer because my contributions have grown over the years.

It's a small win, but the psychology of it is huge. It feels for the first time I'm walking forward on one of those airport moving sidewalk, rather than on my own.

Congrats on having your portfolio reach the tipping point!  Totally agree with you on that analogy.

Definitely a good market year, helped offset a high spending year for us. Oh well. Fingers crossed my wife gets her promotion next year, but if she doesn't we'll still be good. Tracking for March 2025 1MM if the market returns 4%.

I primarily track on the spreadsheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jLRMTDbemf-JwZA10noQ8RrEf3EzpWC0R58nNypstrM/edit#gid=0), but with the end of the year here, it's time for a proper post as well.

Looks like my net worth went up about $220k this year with $120k of that being contributions (and $40k siphoned off to a DAF and car, but you can't even tell! wild.)

If the market cooperates, I'm hoping to graduate sometime towards the middle of 2024. But with the market swings having such an impact on my net worth these days, that's a big if.

I was a bit more spendy in 2023, but I also added € 17 500 to a pension-account thanks to some tax changes. That account is not counted in my "early retirement stash".
Wishing everybody here a wonderful 2024.

Great year for us.

I have restated the ten months before zillow switched to current market value to capture the home value appreciation a little more appropriately.

Last post in this thread - couldn't resist completing the table.  2 months in a row makes me well and truly graduated at this point.  Feels good to have made it under my own steam, but I also added a column for the inherited account just for grins.  There were no additions to it at all this year, so that column just illustrates 2023 market movement.

401K/IRA and Stock Investments only

Found historical data for a decade ago.

End of 2011 - 119519.85
End of 2012 - 182941.93

Added the inherited 401k account for 2023 comparison.  It started 2023 at 720551.95
No money has been added into it, only some periodic rebalancing.  I thought it might make for an interesting comparison vs the race accounts which are still being added to on a regular basis.

Close! If only we hadn't bought that one car! Or that other car! Or made more winning investments! Or whatever! But here we are. Pretty good chance we'll cross the line next quarter, but I also anticipate selling a house which would put us way over the line. Of course we may then buy a house in a year or two which could put us back under, so whatever.

Well this wraps up a crazy year. I started at $684K and ended at $701K despite spending $105K on a travel sabbatical. I made some dumb investing mistakes to the tune of $25K and also got a $21K refund from TY22 returns. Despite those investment mistakes, it looks like my portfolio returned around 17%.

Pretty crazy year with more major home repairs, but a significant increase in salary allowed me to still max out retirement accounts and pay off my car (which is barely a year old!).  Thinking of removing my car equity from NW values going forward.  Maybe removing home equity at some point too.
