The Big Changes

House Value

Our house value keeps going up and up, this quarter around $10,000. The housing market in our area is white-hot right now. I don’t suspect it will stay valued so highly, but it’s fun to see for now!

Looking Forward

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)

Our company recently announced that they will offer a high deductible health plan, enabling us to once again fund an HSA beginning next year. Since HSAs are currently the best retirement account around, we’ll likely reduce our 401k contributions (currently at 17%) to be able to maximize our HSA contributions once we’re able.

      Zillow! Very imperfect but we know that and take it with a grain of salt. Part of the rise was backed up by our property tax appraisal this year, though.
