That is incorrect, it's pretty simple assets - liabilities = net worth

Then you own a depreciating asset.

re: Net Worth at 30
I'm not kidding around. I'm confused by this quote:

quote:

Assets minus liabilities. You had $100k net worth based on the info you gave (unless you are referring to liquid net worth).


It was from Sneakytiger.

This was my post:

quote:

At 30 my net worth was zero. Using today's dollars I had a 300K house with 100K down (equity). I did not have 200K in savings and stocks. So, that's zero.


So,
Assets... 100K equity in home
Liability... 200K debt

My conclusion: I have no net worth.
Sneaky's conclusion: I have 100K in net worth.

Equity is net. It's an asset worth 300k that you owe 200k on. So you have a net worth of 100k.

Your worth is the value - amount owed

If you were to sell everything you had at market price and pay off all debt, how much money would you have?

Think of it this way:
quote:


Assets... 300K home
Liability... 200K debt
Net... 100K (ie, your equity)

re: Net Worth at 30
The only way you get zero or negative net worth from your home is if the value of your home decreases such that its value is less than the remaining amount that is owed.

So, if I could sell my home for 300K then I would get back my 100K equity. Got it.

So, what kind of debt is liability if home debt is not? And what if I can't sell it for 300K?

Yes, so your worth would be 100k

Don't ask me questions I don't have an answer to

If the market price for your home is currently $250k, then your net worth would be $50k. Same as any stocks that you have, as they fluctuate in price, so does your worth.

Well, you just answered the question in my last post. Thanks.

re: Net Worth at 30
I think I see the definitional difference.
My view of net worth was:
Assets v. Owed
Yours is:
Assets v. Liabilities

I viewed:
Owed = Liabilities

Happily, I owe nothing and have no liabilities. I could calculate my net worth by putting my house on the market, but I don't want to ever sell. This is my home till I pass into that great golf course in the sky.

re: Net Worth at 30
Zach - anything you owe is a liability. It doesn't matter if its credit card balance, student loans, a mortgage, car loan or $50 to your best friend. All of your assets will fluctuate as to their value - stocks, 401k, house or other properties.

I used to run the loan department of a bank and helped people put together their financial statements - you list all your assets on 1 side and liabilities on the other. Then you subtract "what you owe" from "what you have" to get your net worth. I never include anything such as furnishings, jewelry, cars, beanie baby collection. Usually not worth what you paid for them.

Didn't read the entire thread so this may have been mentioned, but in the Millionaire Next Door, the formula is this:

Annual Income x Age/10

If someone who makes 80k at 30 has more than 240k, they are doing well.
