Investors - LC / What to do with notes like these.......
« on: September 15, 2013, 11:00:00 PM »
Notes like these drive me crazy - the payment was due a while ago, yet there is no information saying the payment failed, etc, so I never know what to think.  Usually I dump them at a big loss, then the payment shows up within a day or two.  Any thoughts or advice?

Loan ID #6579184

I've noticed the same thing - many more notes available, but far fewer that meet the criteria I've set up.  To me, it seems like there are a lot more loans for small business purposes and less for debt consolidation, but that's just my gut feeling - I don't have any hard numbers to compare.

Not that I've found either.  I try to narrow the search using the buttons at the top, then sort by Loan Number - this also lets you see if anyone else is selling a note from the same loan.  (I like to see how other folks are pricing their notes from the same loan)

Well, as annoying as it is to have money sitting around and not enough notes to invest in, I think it is important that Lending Club is sticking to their strict loan criteria.  I wouldn't want LC to start lowering their standards in order to make more loans available.

Honestly, I think it is a simple supply and demand scenario - as the popularity of P2P lending grows, and more big-money investors come on board, it takes more and more loans to meet that demand.  Personally, I don't think enough borrowers are aware of companies like Lending Club and Prosper.  For anyone with good credit and a substantial credit card balance, it's a no-brainer to consolidate their debt with a P2P loan, but most people I've talked to haven't heard of this option.....  Just my 2 cents worth........
