2011 Net Worth Review

Its been a awhile since I posted an updated chart of our net worth growth. Here a net worth growth update including all of 2011:

Progress continues to be made, but the better part of 2011 appears to be a wash. Perhaps an important observation is net worth growth is looking a lot more linear compared to the exponential net worth growth we've aimed for. Key drivers of our net worth change in 2011 include:

  • Acquisition of our 3rd rental property.
  • Significant declines in international stock values. We have a significant portion (25-35%) of our overall investments in international stocks.
  • Flat returns in domestic stocks which includes the largest portion of our investment holdings.
  • Selling our remaining employer stock options during the year.

Some financial stats for 2011:

+75k != "A wash"

Just saying...

Matt,

Very true -- what I was trying to say was we gained the $75k by April 2011 and the rest of the year was pretty much a wash. Should have stated it that way.
