10 Loan-to-Value (LTV) Ratio Relationship between amount borrowed and value (or sale price) Loan Amount ÷ Price (or value) = LTV ratio Example: Buyer will get a loan of $234,000 with a $260,000 purchase price. $234,000 ÷ $260,000 =.9 (90%) LTV ratio = 90% ©2015 Kaplan, Inc.

11 Another Example of LTV What is the loan amount for a property appraised for $150,000 if the lender will make a 80% LTV ratio loan? Appraised value x LTV ratio = Loan amount $150,000 x 80% = $120,000 Loan amount = $120,000 ©2015 Kaplan, Inc.
