Review of 2016 Financial Goals

Happy New Year!  Financially, 2016 was a strong year for us, hitting four of our five financial goals for the year.  It was especially good considering my wife did not start her current job until the end of February 2016 and I was laid off in October 2016.  I will be posting our 2017 financial goals shortly. 1) Pass both our 2016 and 2017 Net Worth Goals - SUCCESS We were blessed to sell our last home for nearly $700K this past summer (only owed $350K on the mortgage).  This helped us absolutely Read more [...]

Net Worth Milestone: $470,000

We feel blessed to have experienced our largest net worth increase to date.  We just passed the net worth milestone of $470,000, a ~$130K increase in our net worth.  We passed our previous net worth milestone of $340,000 in April. The massive increase was due to selling our home that we owed ~$353K on for $685K; a huge gain in the 4 years that we have owned it.  We purchased a larger, nicer home in a lower cost of living area nearby for $465K.  Since we put a large down payment on Read more [...]

Review of 2015 Financial Goals

I can't believe 2016 is hear already.  Below are the results of the 2015 financial goals that we set for ourselves 12 months ago. As you can see, it’s a mixed bag in terms of success and failure.
