What is Loan to Value Ratio?

Wondering about Loan to Value Ratio (LVR) as you step into buying your first home? LVR is a key term in the home buying world, showing the percentage of the property’s value that your loan covers. The lower your LVR, the bigger your deposit compared to your loan amount. This guide dives into why LVR matters, especially when applying for a home loan, and how keeping it under 80% can be beneficial. We’ll also cover how ScaleMortgage can assist you in understanding and potentially lowering your LVR to secure a better loan deal, saving you money and making your home buying journey smoother.
