June 2015 Net Worth Update (+2,172)




Highlights for June

  • We have earned approx $3,400 (in gift cards, points, and miles) through credit card signup bonuses in the part year. We just finished the last 2 offers and will be looking for my next opportunity.
  • Our properties are listed on our balance sheet based on their cost basis, not current market value. We have done this during the the real estate market highs and lows. I believe real estate is too illiquid to list based on recent sale transactions.
  • I received my employer's annual bonus in June. It was small, but better than last year's ($0) so a step in the right direction.
  • I took a step to move some of our available cash ($5,000) to accelerate paydown of the mortgage on Rental #3. Its the highest interest rate (5% fixed) debt we have.
  • In June we spent a week at Myrtle Beach for a vacation. These days I feel like we need a vacation every month. I would like more opportunities to slow down with the family.
  • In June I sold a significant portion of our Bank ETF (KBW) as it hit new highs and our investment portfolio monthly return (-2.12%) was slightly worse than our benchmark (-2.09%).

Great progress. Are you really going to stop at $2M?

Much of your assets are un-spendable, like RE. Hopefully they produce a great income stream.
