DALLAS -- (Jan. 7, 2008) /PRNewswire/ Fueled by massive layoffs at Countrywide Financial Corp., American Home Mortgage Investment Corp. and First Magnus, states including Arizona, California and Florida saw significant losses in the mortgage sector last year, according to an analysis of layoffs, hirings and company closings conducted by http://www.mortgagedaily.com -- a dominant source of online news for the mortgage industry. But Delaware, Louisiana and Texas were among states to see a net job gain in mortgage lending.

MortgageDaily.com analyzed layoffs and hirings involving at least 50 people at 205 mortgage companies during 2007. Included among the layoffs were employees from companies that have collapsed or closed down.

"The subprime crisis of 2007 has left more than 100,000 mortgage employees without a job -- with many facing foreclosure themselves," said Sam Garcia, Publisher of MortgageDaily.com. "While more layoffs are anticipated for the mortgage sector during 2008, we expect the pace of job cuts to slow significantly. In addition, employment growth is projected in mortgage servicing as delinquencies and foreclosures rise."
