"Loan Origination Date" does not fix net worth issues.

I recently added my new home as "Property" while I was waiting for my mortgage to show up in my accounts list in Mint. A day or two later, the mortgage showed up, but the month had rolled over to November. Now on my net worth chart, it shows that I had an influx of assets in October (when I added the new home) but the mortgage debt isn't listed until November. I would have thought that going into the settings for the mortgage account and changing the loan origination date would fix it but it does not (I've tried changing this on several loans before. It apparently does nothing at all). Please fix this bug, Mint!

Hello chrisgp123,

Unfortunately there's no way to go back and manually adjust your historical net worth. 

Aside from doing nothing, the only option is for you to delete and re-add the real estate, which would essentially remove all historical values. You may also want to delete and re-add your mortgage account (re-adding both at the same time). Note that when you delete a bank account, you lose all historical transactions, but we will pull in 30-90 days of transactions upon re-add. It's really up to you if you wish to do this vs leaving as is. I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

Thank you,
Mint Maggie

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
