March 2018 Net Worth Update (+$11,292)

Highlights for March

  • It feels a little like I have woken up from a coma and finally taking some action to continue building our net worth! March was an exciting month as I dove back into real estate investing. Its been 8 years since I purchased my last property and it feels good. The stock market continued to slide a little.
  • I purchased our 4th rental, a single-family home for $142,000. The real estate market in our area was surprisingly hot; I made offers on 8 properties and this was the first one I received a counter on. I made a cash offer and quick close (closed within 14 days of offer acceptance). The house is currently rented for $1,250.
  • I purchased the property using our available cash as well as tapping an IELOC (investment line of credit) that we had on an existing rental.
  • I plan to do a cash-out refinance on one of my existing rentals to put long-term financing in place.
  • Also in March I broke my telephone so took the plunge and switched my service from Cricket to Project Fi. I expect my monthly cost will be about the same, but the big advantage for me will be international calling/data when I am traveling abroad. You and I can get a $20 referral credit thru this link when you join Project Fi
