Job Gains Down in Q2 Mortgage Employment Index



DALLAS -- (Nov. 6, 2017) The number of people working in the mortgage business moved down on a quarterly basis. Hiring activity has significantly slowed, and the contraction is likely to continue.

An estimated 655,600 people were employed in the mortgage industry as of June 30, 2017. The estimate was based on a Mortgage Daily analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics data and origination market share.

Included in the estimated total were 250,300 mortgage jobs at banks, 64,000 home-lending jobs at credit unions and 341,300 non-bank mortgage jobs reported by the BLS.

Overall staffing in real estate finance declined from a downwardly revised 657,800 as of the end of the first quarter and a downwardly revised 609,800 as of mid-year 2016.

Estimated Mortgage Staffing
Type Q2 2017
Banks 250,300
Credit Unions 64,000
Non-Banks 341,300
Total 655,600

More recent data indicate that mortgage staffing has expanded to an estimated 657,100 as of Sept. 30, 2017.

As part of its Second Quarter 2017 Mortgage Employment Index,Mortgage Daily tracked 1,649 mortgage layoffs, more than the thousand tracked three months earlier.

In addition, 1,955 mortgage hirings were tracked during the most-recent period. Hirings have slowed considerably from over 3,700 one year earlier.

The second-quarter 2016 net gain of 306 jobs was less than 1,122 in the first quarter and 1,812 in the second-quarter 2016.

A preliminary review of third-quarter 2017 activity indicates that hiring activity has plummeted to fewer than 500 jobs -- indicating substantial deterioration is likely with net gains from the current three-month period.

In the Sunshine State, mortgage job losses came to nearly 500 during the second-quarter 2017. That turned out to be the largest decline of any state and more than double No. 2.

Florida -484
New York -225

With in excess of 600 jobs added to its payroll, Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp. had the biggest net gain in staffing of any home lender during the three months ended June 30, 2017. It was the second consecutive quarter Fairway topped the list. Also significantly beefing up its staff was Caliber Home loans Inc.

At HSBC, the payroll contracted by more than 500 people -- by far the biggest net loss of any company during the quarter. The activity reflects HSBC's winding down of its consumer mortgage business.
