Net Worth Update - August 2011
Approximate value of house*: $182,000 (Down 1,600)
Roth IRA: $19,295 (Down $815, but invested $1,600 since last month, so more like down $2,415)
Simple IRA: $4,759 (June 30 statement - it's probably a lot lower now...)
Savings: $6,078 (not including money set aside for property taxes)
Total net worth: $28,650
Difference from last month: -$2,123
*Value from Zillow.com so probably not 100% accurate.
So as expected, the stock market hurt my net worth this month. Hopefully it will bounce back next month (after I make my investments of course!). I don't want to dwell on all the money lost and the fact that our house value is at an all-time low, so I guess I'll just post this and hope for better numbers next month.
