August 2017 Net Worth Update (+$3,767)




Highlights for August

  • August was a pretty muted month for us in terms of net worth change. We still ended up slightly positive.

  • I have bumped up my short term bond allocation in my 401k. I can't find any investment that Im excited about so parking more dollars in closer to cash equivalents.
  • We track our real estate holdings based on their cost basis. I believe this is a conservative approach to measure net worth given the illiquidity of real estate in general. For example Zillow estimates our current real estate values are $220k+ higher than what we track them at here.
  • Im still waiting for agreement on the car accident claim from the other parties' insurance company for our accident at the end of June.
  • I wrapped up a 3-week business trip to China in the 1H of August. I expect this is the last business trip for me for at least the next couple months.
