I’ve been using Mint, not for budgeting, but to make logging into all of my bank accounts easier. I recently told it to use Zillow to calculate the value of my condo. That shot my net worth up to…
(a bit of rounding here)
It really does feel like I’ve “won the game”, not that I can stop working forever, but I have quite a bit of financial freedom now. I’m 25/26 and the sum value of all my assets is over $400,000 and my income is in the high $100,000 range? I also think that Zillow is low by about $50,000 in how much my condo is worth, which would put my full net worth somewhere around $480,000 or about 11 years of current expenses. I’m going to continue counting only the purchase price of my condo in my net worth spreadsheet until I sell it, but it’s still kind of cool to see these numbers.
Also? I saw just under $1,000 in dividends across my investment accounts this quarter. (Note: I do re-invest dividends, so I just find this an interesting metric to watch increase.)
This is probably related to why I haven’t posted much lately – everything is just chugging along and not much out of the ordinary is happening. I’m not really discovering much new in relation to my finances lately either. I will have a post up at some point reflecting on two years of homeownership though!
