CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LendingTree, the nation's leading online source for competitive mortgage offers, today announced the release of LendingTree's Credit Accessibility Report. This report, measured monthly, measures the likelihood of borrowers gaining access to credit for home loans based on LendingTree data.
According to the report, the average accessibility score for the US was 106 in August, compared to 103 in July and 100 in June, indicating that borrowers had an easier time accessing mortgage credit in August compared to prior months. The Credit Accessibility score is benchmarked at 100, using data from the full year of 2012.
"Over the past few years, potential borrowers may have found it difficult to get approved for a loan. But as home prices rise, refinance activity slows and government programs change, potential borrowers are finding it easier to gain access to credit," said Doug Lebda, founder and CEO of LendingTree. "Lenders are easing down payment and credit score requirements while still adhering to conforming loan guidelines. And as the private securitization market starts to bounce back, borrowers who didn't qualify in the past may now have that opportunity."
