Joint ventures between brokerages and mortgage companies and real estate service providers have become increasingly common in the past few years. Brokerages see them as a way to provide more services to consumers, as well as offering another revenue stream, and mortgage companies and real estate service providers often feel they provide an opportunity to get closer to the point of purchase.
