Passive Income Covers my Housing Expense

Checklist-300x300 Passive Income Covers my Housing Expense

With the new year in full swing, I have great news to share with you guys! This will really start my new year on the right foot. I just figured out that my passive income now covers all of my housing expenses and I still have a little left over.

I recently posted about how great last year was. I did a lot of traveling and my net worth grew by $78k.

I was working and planning my 2018 goals, which I will post soon, and I realize something fantastic.  My passive income finally surpasses my home expenses!! 

Let’s take a look at the numbers.


Passive Incomes

Protected 2018 Dividend Income: $4,607.98

Projected 2018 Rental Income: $8,400.00

Total Projected 2018 Passive Income: $13,007.98

Monthly Average: $1,084.00

Home Expenses

Mortgage (Principal, Interest, and Escrow): $685.12

Homeowner Association (HOA): $326

Total Monthly Home expense: $1,011.12


I am left with $72.88 after paying my home expenses!

As an added bonus… Not only does my passive income covers my home expenses, it also covers my electric bill!!  My electric bill averaged $54.09 a month for last year. This is outstanding and a massive check on the financial freedom checklist.

My next big ticket item to check off the list will be my food expenses. I would need to average between $300-$400 extra a month to consider this checked off the financial freedom checklist. This means that I would need to get my projected dividend income between $8k and $9k. I should hopefully accomplish this in the next two years at the rate that I am going.

Knowing this information is an amazing feeling! I am very happy and grateful to be in the position that I am today.

    • Palmetto, thanks! That’s a great question. The dividend income I mentioned in this article are all in a taxable account, so I do pay taxes on the dividend I receive. Thanks for the question and reading!
