Most recent market news:

Mortgage Bankers Association’s Mortgage Credit Availability Index

The MCAI increased 3.2 percent to 183.4 in March. A decline in the MCAI indicates that lending standards are tightening, while increases in the index are indicative of loosening credit. Of the four component indices, the Jumbo MCAI saw the greatest increase in availability over the month (up 11.7 percent), followed by the Conventional MCAI (up 4.5 percent), and the Government MCAI (up 2.3%). The Conforming MCAI decreased 2.6 percent.

“Credit availability increased in March driven by increased availability of Jumbo loan programs and Government loan programs,” said Lynn Fisher, MBA’s Vice President of Research and Economics in a statement. “Led by a wave of adjustable rate Jumbo offerings, the Jumbo MCAI surged in March, more than offsetting its 4.4 percent decline in February, which was the first tightening of the that component index in 11 months.

“Increases observed in the Government MCAI were driven by increased availability of FHA’s Streamline Refinance and 203 K home rehabilitation loan programs.”
