Alright, I’m a day late on this update. I’m sorry. To be honest I forgot about it. Where does two months go between these updates? Now onto the numbers.
Wife’s RRSP $7900
Wife’s Investment Account $8300
My Investment Account $4900
High Interest Savings Account $6200
Therefore my net worth now stands at $275,000 for the end of April 2008. That is an increase of +$13,300 or 5.1% from my last update.
A couple of changes this month. My old work pension finished up and I was able to transfer the money to my RRSP account. The house increased sightly again, but if I need motivation on that front I found a house around the corner from me that listed for $450,000. Granted the house is bigger than mine, but it’s interior is highly dated. I personally think they are asking far too much, but we will see how long it stays on the market before they start reducing their price.
Well I should take a good look at this numbers and enjoy them since I’m going downhill from here. As I start my leave shortly we will start using our savings to live for six weeks. So by my next update I expect my net worth to drop. After that is done I’ll be back on my race to increase my investment net worth by $12,000 this year.
