Prosper Roundup — Father’s Day Edition

by RateLadder on 06/16/08

Here’s hoping that you and yours had a great Father’s Day.  Mine was fantastic… My wife surprised me by flying my dad in for a visit from another part of the country and I enjoyed it very much… 

Around the Prosper, p2p lending, and personal finance blogosphere….

“Home equity used to be the cash management tool for the credit-worthy borrower, and that has really, really dried up,” says Chris Larsen, CEO at Prosper. “In many ways, Prosper’s three-year, $25,000 loan is a pretty good proxy for what people were using home equity for — improving their home, starting a sole proprietorship, college costs and certainly for replacing credit card debt.

“On the return side, people that are getting 3 percent if they’re lucky (can find) it’s pretty easy to get returns that might range from 5 percent to 11 percent (on Prosper).”

RateLadder gives 8 Listing Strategies to get Best Prosper Loan Rate, an update of the Vintage Curves, and hosted the 9th Edition of the Carnival of P2P Lending.  The Prosper Blog was represented by Doug Fuller and Debt Sale Update. Other Posts of Note:
