Purchase price is $300,000

Property Market Value is $250,000

Differential sum is $(300,000-250,000) =$50,000

Furthermore, loan to value ratio (LTV) is based on Property Market Value, but not purchase price.

Mortgage amount = LTV x Market Value

For example,

Purchase price is $300,000

Market Value is $250,000

Loan to value ratio is 90%

Mortgage amount = Market Value x 90%

= $250,000 x90%

= $225,000

Top up amount = $300,000-$225,000 =$75,000


If the purchase price match the market value $250,000

$250,000 x 90% = $225,000

$250,000 – $225,000 = $25,000 (10%)
