Knowing your net worth can tell you a lot about the state of your personal finances. It lets you know where you stand and tracking the number over time can help you see if you’re making improvements in your financial situation or if you’re falling into debt.
This calculator will help you determine your net worth, showing you the total value of your assets minus the total value of your liabilities. The calculator also breaks the value of your assets and liabilities into summarized categories. Be sure to read the section below it for more information on how to figure out your net worth.

Simply put, net worth is a number that indicates how much wealth you have amassed. If the number is positive, it means that you have more than you owe— a good position to be in. On the other hand, if the number is negative, you owe others more than you have. Having an idea of your net worth can help you understand whether you’re on the right track financially.
This number can also improve your plans to tackle debt, develop an overall financial plan, or plan your estate. Net worth is calculated by subtracting your liabilities from your asset.

In finances, an asset is anything that you own. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a tangible asset like a home or car— bank accounts and investments like stocks and bonds count too! Here are some of the biggest categories of assets to consider.
If you own a home, enter the current estimated value of your property. Keep in mind that this is different from the amount that you paid; it is the amount that it is currently worth. Real estate prices generally rise, so if you bought your house years ago, it is likely worth more now. To estimate this amount, consider your most recent appraisal or what similar homes in your area are currently going for on the market.
If you also own land, rental properties, or a vacation home, add those values in as well. Approach these items in the same way that you did your primary residence.
This is a pretty large category that encompasses all of your valuables. Think about including:
Enter the total value of all investments that you own, including accounts like stock portfolios, bonds, options, annuities, and more. You should also include retirement accounts like:
Enter the amount that you have in your bank checking or savings accounts. Have a little bit of cash tucked away under your mattress? Don’t forget to include that! Make sure to also include any life insurance policies here.
Liabilities are the other category that we consider when calculating net worth. A liability is an obligation between one party and another that is not yet completely paid for. Here are the main categories used to compute this number.
If you own a home, enter the outstanding principal balance of your home mortgage. This number shouldn’t include interest, just what is left of the amount you initially borrowed from the lender.
Similarly, if you own any other properties but still have outstanding mortgage payments, enter the amount you owe.
This includes all other non-mortgage loans, like auto, student, or personal loans. This may also include medical debt, retail store financing, home equity loans, or home equity lines of credit.
Have credit cards? Add up any outstanding balances you have on the accounts.
