General Definitions:

 
Loan-To-Value Ratio (LTV): The relationship between the amount of the Mortgage Loan and the appraised value of the property expressed as a percentage. A LTV ratio of 70 means that a borrower is borrowing 70% of the value of the property and paying 30% as a down- payment. For purchases, the value of the property is assumed to be the purchase price, and for refinances the value is determined by an appraisal.
 
Down-Payment: Money paid by a buyer from his own funds, as opposed to that portion of the purchase price which is financed.
