This was a big transition month for us. We recently finished up the cleaning (and part renovation) of one unit in our duplex — and then moved in! That’s right, we now call our duplex home. Half of it at least! The other half we continue to rent out to the tenants we inherited when we purchased the property back in June.
And now that we’re actually living in the place we purchased…..our place…..I can say it feels good! I know we have owned it for months now, but since we were not yet living here, it was a different feeling. It still felt great, but now, the roof over our head is ours! The floor underneath our feet is ours! The backyard with grass and trees is ours! It’s an exciting feeling to be homeowners and it finally feels official.
Moving onto our monthly Net Worth Update statement! For the 6th straight month we have been able to record a monthly GAIN to our net worth. As of the end of November 2005, our net worth has increased by $2,858 to a new total of $57,872. I’m extremely pleased that we have recorded 1/2 a year of increases now! It feels like we have been making the right choices and the numbers continue to show that…
Note From Author
The full “November 2005 Net Worth Update” post has been back-dated to 12/01/2005. But it was originally published to the Financial Independence Champion (FIChampion.com) Blog on 06/14/2016.
Why Back-Date Posts?
I mentioned in my first post how this blog will be a little different than any other ones you may follow. I still plan to talk about personal finance, rental property, travel, and the pursuit of financial independence. But to give all these topics the right context and the full picture, I need to start at the beginning. I need to fill in the details of life from 2005 until now. I want you to see the successes, the struggles, and all the milestones we passed along the way. Therefore most of the “new” content will be back-dated to their appropriate dates in 2005, 2006, and beyond — until we’re caught up!
