Will your home gain more equity than it looses with the negative amortization?

Payment Option ARM: Negative Amortization Mortgages:

The benefits of an option ARM are low payments and the fact that rates and payments may go down if rates improve. You may also qualify for higher loan amounts and there are no balloon payments.

One of these payment options allows you to pay less than the interest, which means an increasing mortgage balance instead of the principle being paid down. There are inherent risks to this, but you have more flexibility and they may be a good decision if your home equity increases faster than the negative amortization. This website does not support negative amortization loans that could put your house at risk.
