Why can't I get a better deal without a buyers agent?
Option 1: Seller's agent keeps the whole thing for minimal extra work.
Option 2: Seller's agent takes 3.5% instead of 5%. Makes an extra 1% for minimal extra work. Seller's save 1.5%. Both people are happy.
How come "if you buy unrepresented, we'll discount the property by 1.5%" a more common selling tactic?
