What is LTV?

LTV

LTV is Loan To Value.  
An acronym often encountered in the home buying or refinancing process, LTV describes loan amount as a percentage of the purchase price or value of property. For example, an $80,000 loan on a $100,000 property equals an 80% LTV.

You can also think of LTV as the inverse of your down payment. If you put 10% down, your LTV will be 90%. The LTV may be slightly higher if costs such as upfront mortgage insurance or other funding fees are added to the loan amount.
