Hopefully I don’t jinx it, but I recently completed our monthly net worth review and we have had positive net worth gains for fourteen months running! It truly has been a bull market!
Of course the bull market is a big contributing factor toward our gain. Between our retirement accounts and investment accounts, we’ve definitely been taking advantage of the gains. I only wish I had more to invest up front!
The housing market improvement has also helped, as I’ve estimated that our home has gone up about 9% in that time frame, which is based off of estimates from comparable homes that have sold in the neighborhood over the same time.
By The Numbers
Consecutive Months of Net Worth Gain: 14
Percentage Gain In Net Worth Over That Time: 38%
Rank in Net Worth Gains Since I Started Tracking Net Worth (January 2002): 2nd
Highest Number of Months of Net Worth Gain Since I Started Tracking: 17 (March 2004 through July 2005)
Just a few more months to break the record. What do you think the chances are?
Have a great weekend!
