The best P2P investors 'read between the lines'
Most P2P investment sites provide a lot of information about the loans they offer. There will be information about the borrower, the purpose of the loan, and what the loan collateral is (if any). Often the information provided will be very positive about all aspects of each loan and each borrower. Some investment risks may not be addressed fully or will be totally ‘glossed over’. It can take time to gain experience and know what things to look for.
Our goal is to help P2P investors of all experience levels find the very best opportunities and avoid potential mistakes. The post below is meant to be a little provocative, but hopefully informative and fun. We’ve listed some common statements we see made on P2P investment sites and what they can sometimes REALLY mean. This is just a starting list though – we welcome all our readers to give their thoughts and also contribute some new ones by adding them in the comments below.

Thank you, I love reading your blog. This is spot on.
this tips are good, but we shoud ask ourselves why somebody is willing to pay 10-14 % interest instead of 5-9% if they get the loan from a bank. Probably because the bank doesn’t like something (the borrower or the collateral property). So we should expect that some problem may occur.
Nice and clear article
Nice one, thank you!
