You already monitor
If you have a checking or savings account, every month, without fail, your bank or financial institution sends you a statement.
It shows account balances and hopefully a lot of deposits that outweigh the withdrawals. 🙂
In addition, it hopefully shows very little in the way of charges from your bank for services rendered reference to your account. But if there are charges, this is the way to find out.
If you have a Deferred Compensation Plan or I.R.A. (individual retirement account), the same rules should apply. You should receive some type of statement with particulars reference to your specific account.
There may be inserts from time to time showing what”special deals” you bank may be offering, but a majority of the time, the update should be only about you and your assets.
The same applies to a resource that I have been looking for since our start in real estate.
Now monitor the real estate you own
I found such a system, that allows every single property owner to monitor their homes specific value. I bought the system and have it posted on-line for our clients and other realtor’s clients to have access to.
It sends a report out each month. You can increase it’s frequency, but I find that once a month is great. It draws it’s intel directly from the source data(the local Boards of Realtors where properties are listed and sold), you can also guarantee your personal and private information never leaving our protective custody.
