I have just realized that my last post was written on September 2017, almost 5 months ago!!! Lack of time I could say? But let’s face it, we never really have lack of time, just time management issues or different priorities. I have been a bit busy with managing working full-time + having a baby + my first real estate investment. And, although I feel having a blog is useful as it makes me fell accountable for how I manage my money, I couldn’t find the time/motivation to sit in front of a computer. I missed it though!
Since it is of no use crying over spilt milk, I will just go on and update you on what happened in my life in the past 5 months (many exciting real estate news!) but first I want to update you on my financial net worth at the end of January 2018.
|Peer to Peer||700|
|Security deposit for current house||4,000|
|Rental Property #1||100,000|
|Rental Property #2||133,000|
|Debt (Rental Property #2)||-94,000|
|Total net worth||260,520|
This is, of course, mine and my husband’s. Our combined savings rate this month was 37% (mostly due to husband’s salary lower than usual as he took parental leave since mid-January).
Check out the next post to see how I am managing my first real estate property and how I am currently on my way to buy the second one!
