Negative equity

Negative equity occurs when the value of an asset securing a loan dips below the loan balance. For example, if an individual finances 100% percent of a home purchase, and  the value of the home subsequently decreases, the homeowner would have negative equity. Selling the home would require the homeowner to pay out of pocket to cover the difference between the sales price and the loan balance.
