**Example 1:**

Joe wants to buy a private property and wants to use the tdsr calculator to calculate his maximum home loan amount at 60% TDSR. Joe draws a fixed monthly income of $8,000 and services a car loan of $1,000 and credit card loan of $1,000 at the point of loan application. He is 40 years old. With reference to the calculator, he will input

Age | Monthly Income (Fixed) | Monthly Income (Variable) | Monthly Expenses | |

Borrower 1 | 40 | 8,000 | 0 | 2,000 |

Next, enter the preferred tenure 25. (Notice the TSDR calculator automatically show that the maximum tenure is 25 years when the age is 40 years old)

**Results**

The maximum home loan amount is $559,302. If the loan to valuation (LTV) is 80%, the estimate purchase price will be $699,128.

**Note:** If you change the LTV to 60%, the estimate purchase will be $932,171.

**Example 2:**

June Toh wants to buy a private property. She is earning a fixed monthly income of $6,000 and $2,000 variable (commission, bonus). She services a car loan of $800, credit card loan of $1,000 at the point of loan application. She is 32 years old. With reference to the calculator, she will input

Age | Monthly Income (Fixed) | Monthly Income (Variable) | Monthly Expenses | |

Borrower 1 | 32 | 6,000 | 2,000 | 1,800 |

Next, enter the preferred tenure 30. (Notice the TSDR calculator shows the maximum tenure is 25 years when the age is 32 years old)

**Results**

The maximum home loan amount is $587,915. If the loan to valuation (LTV) is 80%, the estimate purchase price will be $734,893. TDSR is assumed at 60%.

**Example 3:**

Age | Monthly Income (Fixed) | Monthly Income (Variable) | Monthly Expenses | |

Borrower 1 (Joe) | 40 | 8,000 | 0 | 2,000 |

Borrower 2 (June) | 32 | 6,000 | 2,000 | 1,800 |

Next, enter the preferred tenure 25. (Notice although the TSDR calculator shows the maximum tenure is 28 years, in our example, the couple wants to pay off the loan earlier. Therefore the preferred tenure is 25. )

**Results**

The maximum home loan amount is $1,086,645. If the loan to valuation (LTV) is 80%, the estimate purchase price will be $1,358,306. TDSR is assumed at 60%.
