The loan-to-value (LTV) ratio is loan amount expressed as a percentage
of home value. Lenders base home value on the lesser of the purchase price and the appraised
market value. For example, if the purchase price is $100,000, and the appraised
value is $95,000, lenders will usually use $95,000 as home value for the calculation of LTV ratio.
If there are more than one mortgage loan on the home, the combined loan-to-value (CLTV)
ratio will be used and can be calculated using the combined
loan amount divided by the home value. For example, if a borrower
has a mortgage loan of $80,000 for a house worth $100,000,
the LTV ratio will be $80,000/$100,000 or 80%. If a borrower
has two mortgage loans ($80,000 of the first mortgage and
$5,000 of the second mortgage) for a house worth $100,000,
the combined loan-to-value (CLTV)
ratio will be $85,000/$100,000 or 85%.
The loan-to-value (LTV) ratio is one of the key loan qualification factors that lenders
will look at when making lending decisions. Lenders often require the borrower with LTV ratio above 80% to purchase private mortgage insurance (PMI). PMI
adds significant cost to home financing. To remove PMI,
the borrower needs to bring LTV ratio down to 80% or less.
