Citing the subprime mortgage crisis, MortgageBrokers.com Holdings Inc., Toronto, has announced the suspension of plans to enter the U.S. mortgage market.The company said it would suspend the plans "until such time as the full economic effect of the current market turmoil is known." MortgageBrokers.com said the U.S. downturn will prevent it from reaching previous revenue projections for this year, and that the fallout from the crisis has affected the performance of its Canadian operations. The company reported that it had increased its national sales force of mortgage agents from 247 to 307 in the third quarter, but that the ramp-up of newly recruited agents "has been slower than expected." The mortgage brand and technology firm can be found online at http://www.mortgagebrokers.com.
