    A mortgage broker is involved in residential lending and a commercial loan broker is involved in bigger deals like commercial office space, etc. Both are commission sales jobs so how much you make really depends on you. I think on average they have the same earning potential. A mortgage broker makes less per loan that a commercial loan broker, but they have a potential for a higher volume so I’m sure they even out in the end.

    Both are brokers and can be one of the other or both. Most brokers specialize in certain markets so as to become to become well known for a certain field.

    A commercial broker specialize in doing commercial loans such as hotels, shopping centers, motels, warehouses apartment buildings that exceed more than 5 units, and other commercial properties.

    A residential mortgage broker specialize in 1-4 unit apartments, single family homes and a hybrid called mixed use properties, where as a small commercial property might also have a living space on the same property.

    The earning capacity will depend on the ability of the broker, number of sales that closed and other factors. Does he work alone or have others working for him, or is he on a corporate staff?

    Brokers are allowed to hire others to work for him under his license. Since others are working for him he is entitled to a share of what transactions they bring into the office and close.

    Since there are a variety of ways of earning it is difficult to determine what each can earn. It is safe to say that one that has others working for him/her will probably make more in the earning department.

    I hope this has been of some use to you, good luck.

    Commercial is mostly done through banks of the company but you can find smaller private offices that do some commercial work. I know they, for the most part, want you to have experience say in residential as commercial is similar. Not something they hire first timers for. But, yes there is a market. I’d suggest going residential first, less work lots of money and better hours.

    The market is saturated and became that way during the buying boom. Unless you have some really good connections it would be hard to make a living under the present situation.
