Although I agree that technically your house is an asset, I think that for some purposes it is better not to mentally include anything in your list of assets that you're not willing to sell. For most people I believe this would exclude their house. For example, I would like to retire early and my calculations for what assets I would need to do so do not include the worth of my house since I plan on living there and not selling it.
