If you have a $60,000 bond, you pay $6,000 (generally) to the bondsman to put up their $60K. They often, though not always, want collateral like real property. Talk to several bondsmen in the area and see what type of security they arequire.
No legal advice is given here. My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must NOT be relied upon as if they were legal advice. I give legal advice ONLY in the course of a formal attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions & Answers forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by joint execution of a written agreement for legal services. I am only licensed in the States of California and New York and the District of Columbia
by "property" do you mean real estate or literally you have nothing to serve as collateral. Getting a bondsman to put up cash without collateral is not going to happen.
Here's an idea: Call a bondsman and ask them how things "work." Have you considered that?

Bondsman are their own private company. They can accept payment however they want. You'd be better off throwing that 6k at a lawyer rather than throw down the bondsman drain. In my opinion.
Always consult a local attorney before acting on any legal opinions or advice you find here, or on the internet, generally.
