 Accessing Monetary Value

Just because you own these assets doesn’t mean you’ll be able to access their monetary value today.  Only those things that you can quickly exchange for a good market value, such as cash and other highly liquid assets, are easily accessible.

Although it might take months to turn real estate into its true cash value, use the full market value when calculating your net worth today.  If you’re unsure of what something you own is worth — like an antique — is worth, find a professional appraiser.

Many assets also have associated liabilities.  For example, a home with a mortgage.  The home’s current market value is a potential asset.
