Well welcome to the recovered edition of my net worth updates. See the numbers below.
Wife’s RRSP $11,000
Wife’s Investment Account $7,400
Wife’s TFSA $5,600
My Investment Account $5,800
High Interest Savings Account $3,900
Therefore my net worth now stands at $273,400 for the end of Aug 2009. That is an increase of $21,700 or 8.6% from my last update. Of that my investment net worth was $81,800 which was an increase of $10,300 or 14%.
On a year to date basis net worth is up 24.4%, while investment net worth is up 66.6%. It is interesting to note that now my net worth is within $1600 of my all time high of April 2008. So I would call this a recovery, at least for me.
I did increase my house value this month. The house across the street just sold giving me a very good reference number to what my house is worth. Also we continued the mortgage pay down campaign so that keeps dropping at a good pace.
On the investment front we continue to bulk up my wife’s investment account with some contributions, but in general the market’s recovery has more driven this net worth increase more than anything else. Essentially I’m seeing a the payback of buying those investments around the bottom of the market earlier this year.
Also I realized my graphs were getting cut off during the transfer from the original spreadsheet so I adjusted the amount of data being displayed so they should show properly now.
