Mortgage brokers settled 59 per cent of residential home loans in the 2018 September quarter, which was up from 53 per cent in the same quarter of 2017.

The escalating credit crunch implemented by the big banks in the wake of the banking royal commission triggered the largest year-on-year increase for any quarter over the last four years. 

The data from CoreLogic also revealed that settled broker volumes slipped between the September 2017 and September 2018 quarters from $51.77 billion to $50.19 billion, a three per cent fall.

Mortgage brokers provide their potential clients access to a panel of 34 lenders on average.

The new statistics reporting a sharp rise in broker market share came from the research group Comparator, a CoreLogic business.

Deloitte Access Economics issued a report last July which said the industry employed an estimated 22,215 people, which included 14,230 active brokers and 7,985 support staff.

Mortgage brokers, on average, have 13.8 years of experience in the industry.
