I just received a small cash windfall from an inheritance and wanting to invest or do something other than putting it in a CD or savings. I will need the money in about 8 to 12 months to put down on a home purchase. What have you done, short term. to maximize, lets say $60K to $70K? For example, I have a buddy who buys and sells all types of farm equipment, says he makes some good money each year doing this. I don't have the knowledge or land to put farm equipment on,but wanted to bring up an example.
