I am writing with the hopes that maybe you help direct me in the right direction. My name is Edward Crupar. I am a firefighter located in Florida. I do have some equity including 3 investment properties and an investment account that is valued at about $250,000. (as of MAY 1, 2010). This investment is a minimum guaranteed amount to me and grows on a monthly basis. It will have a cash out to me in approximately 2 years when I retire. I am in need of funds to consolidate bills and complete one of my homes for resale. I am looking for a loan at an affordable but fair interest rate that I am willing to balloon and pay off in full in 26 months from the date of contract signing. I am looking to borrow $40,000. with a payoff back to you of $50,000 in July of 2012. This will be a 25% return on your money for 26 months of investment. Would you be able to help me in this situation or do you know of someone who can help me? Thank you for taking the time to read this posting.
