Net worth is a measure of an individual’s financial well-being. It is calculated by comparing assets (things of value) with liabilities. Assets include cash and investments, real estate, cars and other valuable items.
People often need to calculate their net worth when making major financial decisions, such as buying a home or sending their children off to college. A net worth calculator can provide invaluable assistance in determining where you stand financially and how best to spend your funds.
Your net worth may be negative if your debts exceed assets. This doesn’t indicate you’re in financial difficulty; it simply indicates that it’s essential to get those debts paid off quickly.
