2010 Consumer Mortage Survey

Results from the 2010 CMHC Mortgage Consumer Survey show that mortgage broker market share has remained stable over the past year.

Mortgage brokers continue to have higher usage among first-time buyers (45%) and repeat buyers (33%) compared to the refinancing and renewal segments, which have been relatively stable since 2006 at about 23% and 13%, respectively.

As seen in 2009, broker market share is strongest in Western Canada where 53% of buyers in British Columbia and 41% in the Prairies used a broker to arrange their mortgage.

One key finding found that the Internet is a vital tool for mortgage shoppers. In fact, almost nine out of 10 first-time homebuyers use the Internet to research mortgages.
