FY17 Result: Cha-ching!

Let’s get the inside scoop on a bogan’s net worth after a volatile 2017 financial year!

FY16 Closing Net Worth: $43,130

  • Own one property worth $150K, renovated but not revalued
  • Had just paid deposit for second property in late June
  • $135K debt
  • No shares
  • Net income from job: approx $53K

FY17 Closing Net Worth: $94,350

  • Own two properties worth $440K, both renovated and revalued
  • Rental income of $26K
  • $380K debt
  • Share portfolio of approx $27K
  • Dividend income of ~$0.5K
  • Net income from job: approx $52K

Change: +$51,220

This really pisses me off because it’s only just short of a thousand bucks a week.

Most of the gains were from the boost in value of my properties thanks to my tight reno skills. In the end, my net worth increased by 118% from where it was a year ago.

I have certainly lost money on shares this year though – I’m still fine tuning my strategy. I plan to substantially grow my dividend income in FY18 which will be nice, cos I like money.

Stay tuned, big changes are coming.

  1. Woah! Look at that net worth charge ahead! Well done on that. You’ve certainly done well on that front. Looking forward to seeing what changes you will bring / blog about in the next Financial Year.

  2. Somehow you lost approx $1k net income from your job in the last year and still managed to completely smash it! Looking forward to your FY18 efforts on the shares front. I think you’ll be forever fine-tuning your shares investment strategy though, it’s a never ending learning experience :).
