November Net Worth...

It's been quite a while since I've compiled and posted our net worth. You can view the details by clicking on the picture on the left. Cash savings has gone way down due to the new home down payment and upgrades done to the house. We were lucky enough to get a 10k check as a gift from the wife's relative. That helped cushion the blow.

Naturally the market is way down, as well as the retirement funds. Our house was professionally appraised at 96k more than we paid for it. And according to Zillow, it's worth much more than that. So based on that, I'm keeping the appraisal value. The cars I'm keeping till' the end of the year, until I re-appraise them using the current bluebook value guide.

Overall our debt has gone down. A car loan will go away in a couple of months. That will save us about 265 bucks a month, and a little over 3k a year. Overall, thanks to a home that has over 20% equity, and more valuable than paid for, it's a good net worth. Climbing the financial ladder slowly but surely...
