Mortgages were slightly easier to get in February, according to data from the Mortgage Bankers Association. The MBA’s Mortgage Credit Availability Index (MCAI) increased 0.6% to a reading of 180.1 in February, indicating mortgage underwriting standards were a little looser compared to January. Among loan types, jumbo loan mortgage credit availability increased the most as the jumbo index climbed 2.2%. That fits with a trend of rising mortgage balances and jumbo loan applications.
