April 2016 Net Worth (+$19,978)

Highlights for April

  • Things settled down in April - not too much activity in the markets, not too many highlights at home.
  • 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 quick business trip to Europe this month for 3 days, but other than that no business travel in April! Things are slowing down for at least a bit at work.
  • My wife and I started exploring the possibility of renting a house in Europe/France for a month for our summer vacation, but couldn't quite get organized enough to finalize plans. We've decided to shelve the idea for now and expect to have a slow summer with maybe a couple small trips nearby.
  • I upped our monthly 529 contributions slightly to now $300/mo which are not reflected on our balance sheet.
