Upside Down

Upside Down

A common mortgage term, upside down means that the value of a home is less than the amount owed on it. Basically the owner of the home owes more than the home is worth.

An upside down mortgage can have dangerous consequences when a homeowner needs to sell but does not have the ability to bring cash to the table at sale time to make up for the deficit in equity.
