What's your net worth (poll style)

Assets minus debt

Wanted to do a poll so no one would feel like throwing a number down (you more than welcome if you want to though, we won't judge )

Not good. My ex-wife left me $15K in the hole I'm still trying to get out of.

I misread the poll and voted incorrectly. Can that be fixed?

I'm in negative.

My only real assets are a 71' Camaro, a laptop, several computers, my dvds, and a shitload of books.


and those don't cancel out the debt I am in.

$50K to 100K I believe.

Probably closer to $50K with student loans.

The region you live in makes a big difference income and net worth-wise. You can have sat on a house for 10 years in California or New York and fairly easily have a million dollars in equity. But unless you sell it and move somewhere else it doesn't do you all that much good.

not much in terms of assets. technically, my car is in my parent's name. my student loan and bank account basically cancel each other out at the moment. guess i only have some mods worth a few thousand, and dvds, probably also worth a few thousand, a few laptops and computers, and ht.

Negative, especially since I just "bought" my first house within the last year.

Did it go down in value? You should take what it is worth and subtract what you owe. You may be upside down, but within the last year might be tough unless the market really tanked.

very rough estimate of about 25k. That is, kind of according to that link skippy just posted. I'm probably worth something like negative eighteen thousand nine hundred and forty three or something.

You count a life insurance policy in your net worth?

Only one with a cash value (and you probably shouldn't have one of those anyway). Unless you plan on dying soon.
