Year Over Year Net Worth

This post is about my Historical Net Worth over the last decade or so. I understand that many people do not use their Primary Residence as part of there Net Worth calculation. However, my current residence does not factor into my Retirement Master Plan. I sell the Primary House eventually. I would encourage anyone who isn’t tracking year over year growth to start doing this as early as possible. It can be very difficult to track down old numbers.

The formula used for these calculations is Total Assets MINUS Total Liabilities.

2018 yields a bumper crop of GAINS, the power of compounding interest is really starting to show itself.

2017 shapes up to be a GREAT YEAR, our single biggest leap, excluding inheritances. A few more like that and it is FIRE time.

HERE is a link to that very first Net Worth calculation in 2006.

2008 was a bad year for probably almost everybody. I divided up the next year into 2 categories, with and without the inheritance we gained when my in-laws passed away in 2008.

2012 saw a big jump in both Assets and Liabilities because of the purchase of the Family Cottage.

2013 was a BIG MILESTONE for me because I wanted to hit 2 commas in the Net Worth before turning 40 and I made it just under the wire!

  1. Hey, great blogpost – especially love the chart with miracles!!! I’ve tracked my net-worth since 1995 and it’s such a nice feeling when compound interest starts kicking-in. At some point the damn thing will fly on its own. Happy New Year and to an awesome 2018!

    • Let me know when you get around to charting those NW figures since 1995 on your site, I would like to check out that trajectory.
