Early results reveal increase optimism from brokers

by |
Brokers are optimistic about the year ahead, according to early Broker Sentiment Poll results. There is still time to have your say in the industry’s most comprehensive survey about the brokering industry. Click here to take the quick five minute survey.

This year, a whopping 40 per cent of brokers pulled say they plan on hiring new staff this year in a bid to better tackle increased demand, compared to only six per cent saying the same in 2014.

Further, only one per cent of brokers pulled say they might leave the industry in 2015 compared to three per cent last year.

In these uncertain times it’s more important than ever to collect data about how brokers feel about the future of the industry and we intend to do just that with our annual Broker Sentiment issue. Click here to take the quick five minute survey; the responses will then be shared with Canada’s mortgage broker associations to ensure broker voices are heard.

Brokers are already calling this survey the most effective lobbying tool to help shape not only mortgage rates but also government guidelines and lending guidelines in 2015.

“It’s really important that brokers give ongoing feedback,” Layth Matthews of RateMiser Mortgage Advisors told MortgageBrokerNews.ca. “It shouldn’t feel like it’s an attack; it’s very healthy to give ongoing feedback to the broker associations because otherwise they can get far afield from our core interests.”

So don’t delay. Let us know how you feel about the current rate environment, rate discounting, diversifying, and the future of mortgage regulations by taking our Broker Sentiment Poll.
