For the 2011 year we're up about $20,000 total in our net worth. It would be up considerably more but our real estate continued to lose a lot of value. We own rental properties as well as our home so a lot of our assets are in real estate.
Here is the trend in our assets showing 2009, 2010 and 2011 year end totals :
As you can see our cash assets went up a fair amount over 2011. I normally wouldn't want to have that much of our money sitting in cash but we've been home shopping so we've had a large amount of cash set aside for a down payment. In addition our debt levels went down about $16,000 due to paying down our mortgages through the year.
