Savor the feeling of being done, but at the same time, mourn the loss. I always felt like there was a lot of lost potential that LC left on the table when they decided to make whatever changes were made. I've since moved on to Fundrise, and have never looked back. That was 2+ years ago.

The decision to leave was the right one for me and I regained so much time by doing so. They even recover their own losses. They had one go bad about a month ago and just announced that they were able to fully recover it on their own so the investors were made completely whole. When did we ever see that with LC?

Yes, it is a bittersweet feeling. For me it was a great hobby and a quite profitable one until it wasn't.
I do miss the good old days; it was a lot of fun. Guess all good things come to an end as they say.
The shrinking individual investor share of the pie as provided in LC quarterly reports tells the tale.
Best of luck with Fundrise! Sounds like you have a winner.

If a note has > $0.01 outstanding principal I can list it for $0.01 and it will be bought.
If a note has $0.01 outstanding principal I can list it but it will not be bought.
If a note has $0.00 outstanding principal I cannot even list it!
Why are there rules that prevent me from giving notes away for an asking price of $0.00 if I so choose?

If you list for $0, folio cannot collect fee from you (1% * 0 = 0).

what is the differences between fundrise and other REITs?  From their website I see equity investment into real estate and CMBS, CDO etc from their document.  It is totally different instrument from consumer debt and completely different risk.  I am not sure if the return is enough to compensate for the risk should it hit a trough.  There are plenty of publicly traded REITs have an annual dividend of more than 9%.
