Listings so nice they can't be ignored.
« on: October 25, 2012, 06:07:51 PM »
I don't (usually) invest in high grade loans.  You might - not my strategy.

But occasionally I see a listing (I hand select) that says something to me.

This AA listing said:  "I don't know if it will work - but I want to go there!"

https://www.prosper.com/invest/listing.aspx?listingID=637206

And so I bid $25. :)

Wow. That is one detailed loan description. And a very clean credit profile. Thanks for sharing but too low for me.

That's ok, I just bid another $25 for you.  :)

I had forgotten about the 2% bonus through Nov 30th on AA/A/B/C, so, actually, it's 8.49% not 6.49%, but, yes - I agree.  Normally, too
low of a return, especially when I can get 5% risk-free/FDIC elsewhere.  But I'm not above making the occasional exceptional exception!

I have been known to do the same on occasion - always good to bend your own rules sometimes.

And where is this elsewhere that is paying you 5% risk free?

Starting a small business is NEVER risk free.  This is a high risk loan.
