According to the Wealth Comparison Calculator, my household, at age 29, should be worth almost $800,000. And here I thought I was doing OK...

What a terrible calculator.
I think the calculator is buggy. For our household, we'd be doing okay if our net worth was $1.14 million. And I was thinking we are not doing too bad either...

It seems to me that the calculator seems to produce reasonable results until you get to the last question on renting, owning a home without a mortgage and owning a home with a mortgage.

For a male, 35 to 44 years of age, university degree, couple under 65 with kids at home, household income of $50K to $75K and two earners, the median networth is shown as $522K.

Own with mortgage = $591 million
Own without mortgage = $1.109 million
Renting = $384K

The final choice seems to throw off results quite a bit.
