Calculating LTV Ratio

Explains what Loan to Value (LTV) is, and helps you to determine the LTV on a property you own or are looking to buy.

This free online Loan to Value Calculator will calculate the LTV and CLTV ratios for either your present home or a home you are looking to purchase.

Loan-to-Value (LTV) Ratio is an assessment used by lenders to determine the risk involved with granting a mortgage to the home buyer.

LTV is also used by lenders to see if they can manage to get you to borrow back the principal and down payment monies you've already paid out (line of credit or home equity loans).

What Do the Numbers Mean?

A Loan-to-value Ratio of 80% or lower is usually needed in order to secure a mortgage. LTV ratios above 80% usually require the buyer to purchase Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) in order to be approved for a mortgage.

If you have an existing home loan and you've been required to pay PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance), it might pay to keep a close watch on your LTV. Once it drops below 80% you might be able to get your lender to drop the PMI requirement.

However, you may be required to pay to have an appraisal done on your home before your lender will allow you to drop the PMI. But be forewarned, paying for the appraisal does not guarantee that you'll be permitted to drop PMI.

With that, let's use the loan to value calculator to calculate your LTV Ratio.
