Enter the par value ($) and the repair costs ($) into the Foreclosure Cost Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Foreclosure Cost. 

Foreclosure Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Foreclosure Cost. 

FC = PV – RC

  • Where FC is the Foreclosure Cost ($)
  • PV is the par value ($) 
  • RC is the repair costs ($) 

How to Calculate Foreclosure Cost?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Foreclosure Cost.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the par value ($). The par value ($) is given as 50,000.
  2. Next, determine the repair costs ($). The repair costs ($) is provided as 20,000.
  3. Finally, calculate the Foreclosure Cost using the equation above: 

FC = PV – RC

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

FC = 50,000 – 20,000 = 30,000.00 ($)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

par value ($) = 140,000

repair costs ($) = 30,000

Entering these values and solving gives:

FC = PV – RC = 110,000.00 ($)
