Net Worth Not Worth the Hassle?

I am never one to cry that the sky is falling.  When I saw that the market fell below 10,000, I was secretly happy…the market is on sale.  It’s a good time to buy, I thought to myself.  When it fell even further I finally scratched my head and looked at a stock chart…I’d been avoiding it the past few weeks.

Today I made the mistake of checking my Vanguard account status.  Ouch.

I keep telling myself it’s a good time to buy…

    Yes it is. I have a lovely house perfect for real estate investment! It’s been on the market since I started med school and hasn’t sold yet.

    Now I am an M3.

    Damn…

    It’s a VERY good time for you to buy.

    Hey Jared, I hope your house does sell soon! I was referring specifically to the stock market in my post…it’s a perfect time to buy a total market fund. even if we have not seen market bottom, your dollar in the market is worth almost twice what it was a few months ago.
