Buyers agent and new construction townhouse?We met with a buyer's agent briefly (about 30 minutes) yesterday. Later that day we heard that a builder was going to build additional new townhouses nearby. Are there any advantages or disadvantages to having a buyer's agent in this situation? For example, would they make our lives any easier in terms of dealing with lendors and the developer? Or would the developer give us better incentives if we came in by ourselves and with our own lender (since they wouldn't have to pay commission)? Just trying to understand exactly how the dynamics of this situation would work.
