Mortgage Employment Index Declines Most in 6 Years


DALLAS -- (March 24, 2014)
Mortgage-related job losses continued to mount, reaching the highest level in six years. But layoffs are quickly slowing.

Mortgage Daily tracked nearly 22,000 layoffs for its Fourth Quarter 2013 Mortgage Employment Index.

Layoffs were 24% worse than the third quarter and 810% more than a year earlier.

Mortgage layoffs during the fourth-quarter 2013 exceeded hirings by 18,797.

Net job activity has deteriorated for three consecutive quarters and was the worst quarter since 2007.

Period Layoffs Hirings Net
Q4 2013 21,878 3,081 -18,797
Q3 2013 17,683 2,401 -15,282
Q4 2012 2,404 4,975 +2,571

"Mortgage lenders and servicers continued to adjust staffing levels to account for dwindling refinance activity and fewer distressed loans," said Mortgage Daily Founder and Publisher Sam Garcia. "But despite the dismal numbers, early indications are that mortgage layoffs have turned sharply lower in the first quarter of this year."

For all of 2013, mortgage staffing declined by 31,931 employees -- the worst year since 2008.

In California, there were 2,997 more layoffs than hirings in the fourth quarter.-- a bigger loss than any other state.
