bids are based on monthly (P &I) Principle and Interest
payments. In addition to the payment on which you are

Fixed (no payment increases) Zero interest,

Auction Price $160K if your winning bid is say $500
monthly (P &I), you would pay $500 every month for 320
months or26.67 years, after each monthly payment your equity
would increase by your monthly payment size, in this example
