Detailed Financial Picture – March 2015

February’s Numbers

As of March 5, 2015, we are $12,500 in debt without a mortgage to speak of (yet).  We currently have $578,747.28 in assets.  Our investment accounts are at $454,222.97. Our Net Worth is $566,247.28, up from $551,947.34 last month (2.59% increase).

Not as much of an increase, but we didn’t have the same contribution assistance from Dad’s company this month.  Just a lot of improvement in the markets.

We have siding on the house (mostly), the kitchen cabinets are mostly installed, and most of the outlets, built-in lights, and faceplates were installed as of earlier this week.  Not sure we’ll be moving in by March 26, but they might be finished and we might be on the path to closing by then.  We’re still waiting for the electric company to install the electric meter before we can schedule inspection and closing.

We’re all ready to finally move out of my mom’s house! We’ve been able to put $3400 (at least) aside every month towards closing, moving costs and new appliances while living with my mom, but we’re done and ready to be on our own again – with a garage, and our own kitchen!

Debt (in the order we’re paying it down):

  • Car loan (0%): $12,500 (-500.00)

Total paid off in February:  $500

      They turned out really well. There will be a black granite countertop and walnut colored hardwood on the flooring with black/white/grey subway tile on the backsplash. I was hesitant about the color choices and making the kitchen look too dark since there’s no windows in the kitchen itself, but I think it’s turning out very well.

      So far, no word on it 🙁 They *might* finish by the end of March, but we’re definitely not closing in March, and more likely towards the end of April. Once the meter is in, it’s an estimated 3-4 weeks of work (what work exactly, I’m not sure), then we have to schedule inspection, and settlement, which is another 2-3 weeks. I’m just hoping we don’t get into June with the feds raising interest rates – I don’t want to lock our rate until the electric meter is in since it’s such a wildcard.

      Thanks! I just hope it’s done and ready to move in soon – as of yesterday, they hadn’t made any changes to it.
