Mortgage underwriters typically make between 18 (low) and 35 (high) dollars per hour. The average underwriter makes around 25 per hour. Also some wholesale lenders also provide a monthly bonus if you meet your underwriting quota. FYI .... I left this industry despite the good pay because in this bad economy nobody is buying right now and as an underwriter I was laid off approximately 4 times in one year (i did contract underwriting). The field is so volatile you really can't depend on it to be your families only source of income. Hope this helps :)
