August 2015 Net Worth Update(-$44,297)




Highlights for August

  • We have earned approx $3,400 (in gift cards, points, and miles) through credit card signup bonuses in the past year.
  • 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 had a number of rental repairs completed in August including a new roof and some other repairs that added up to $4,300.
  • Our Rental security deposits balance went down as I paid out 2 security deposits from rental turnovers in July.
  • Our investment portfolio declined ~6.5% in August, inline with our benchmark. I also started putting some cash to work, adding to some of our investments with the recent declines in Fairfax Financial, Genworth, and Union Pacific.
  • Otherwise a pretty quiet month for us.
