Dollars and cents behind the move

I have previously mentioned that we are moving. The driving force behind this was to be closer to my in-laws and along the way reduce our monthly expense. It would also be nice if we could walk away with some extra money to invest. Below is a quick break down of where I see us being in a couple of months.

Old House Numbers:

Market Value $305,000 – $310,000.

1,400 sqft, 3bed/3bath, .8 acres

Current Mortgage: $193,548

A move is coming

I have to say I am not the best writer nor the most organized with getting my thoughts on virtual paper. I am sure this post will jump around a bit and with that here we go.

I mentioned in the May Net Worth post that we had bought another house and are planning a move. We are moving from New England to the great state of Georgia. Where do I start with this one? I was born and raised in the same area of New England for my entire life and my wife has lived here for about 15 years. This is a huge change for both of us. Trading in the cold weather gear, 4 seasons, and the snow (No more snow blowing!!) for warmer weather, longer swimming season and slower pace of life.

Over the last 10 years

Net Worth Update #2 – May ’17

Here we go with the second net worth monthly post. I had mention in the post about putting it all together that I had never tracked or officially calculated our net worth. I started back in April 2017 with the first Net Worth Update #1  and will continue to track and post monthly. May was an exciting month for us as we are buying a new house and it is only 1,100 miles away. This is why I haven’t posted in the last few weeks, I have been tied up with this new house thing. I will be posting about this new adventure and be asking a lot of questions along the way. Now, let’s get to this month’s numbers.
