End of February Update

March 1st, 2013 at 08:56 am

Finally gave in and upped the value of the house. Its still $50k lower than Zillow's estimate but I think that is as accurate as I care to get. My previous value was starting to look ridiculous given the home sales in the area. Glad I don't have to buy a house in this area for those prices though.

Total networth is $127k now. Excluding the house value increase, we upped our networth by 11.49% year to date. Hardly surprising considering the massive increases to our retirement accounts. Should be quiet for awhile as we rebuild our savings for paying off the first credit card.

I do not expect as much progress in March. We have a vacation, a new (well, restarting an old) hobby and spring fever to contend with in that month so I suspect our biggest accomplishment will be minimizing the increase in spending.

    Hey, there are worse things than increasing the value of your house! No need to beat yourself up over that one, and it sounds like it still leads to a number that is well below average, so you are being very conservative with the numbers. That is smart because it offers some insurance that you are keeping within parameters and not living beyond reality. Congrats!
