Neighbour Joe - August 2017 Net Worth

Hi everyone, it's time for another monthly update of my net worth. A lot happened this month, I moved to a new province for work which meant I brought a new house and sold my old house. The transaction haven't fully settle yet so I am going to give an approximate amount.  

Chequing: $4,149.85
TFSA Investment: $31,165.04
TFSA Mutual Fund: $3,525.77
Real Estate: $224,000 (Purchase Price of my new house)

Work Pension: ~$153,000 (I checked in Jul 2017 but I can't remember the exact amount)
Approximate cash from house sales(Sales price - old mortgage) : ~$91,000

*Automobile is not included as I feel it depreciate too fast and will give a misrepresentation of my true net worth


Old Mortgage: $0
New Mortgage: $179,200
LOC: $12,066.71

Bridge Loan: $30,000

*Credit Card is not included as it is paid in full every month
Current Net Worth: $285,574.66 (+5%)

A reason for the increase in net worth is my investment which is doing better than last month because Bombardier stock price went up recently. I still haven't contributed any additional money to my investment since this blog started. I am planning to make a post later to show everyone my investment portfolio.

The main reason my net worth went up is because my wife took $10,000 from her saving for the down payment of the new house. Since her net worth is not part of my calculation, this transfer reflected in an increase in my net worth.

One last thing, as you can see i'll have a lot of cash on hand soon. My plan is to paid off all the loan and as much of the mortgage as I can without incurring any penalty. I'll then set aside the max amount for mortgage pre-payment for the new calendar year. Then whatever is left will be invested in my TFSA.
